I love Wait, wait, don't tell me so I thought I would enjoy this book. It's amazing to see how many famous people he met when they were just starting out. He has done so many things in his career. I enjoyed how the story was told using different people's viewpoints. The pictures in the book complemented the story nicely.

Great book. As a fan of the show, "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me", I knew I would like this book. Carl Kasell is a class act. He is the kind of person you want for a friend. I loved the honesty he wrote with.
