I am a fan of Alan Alda the actor but I am not so sure about Alan Alda the writer. This book takes you on the edge of something really good then distracts itself with its own pretty reflection. Alda comes off as a pompous jerk who gets his kicks by ruining graduations. He goes on about what the meaning of life should and should not be, but I never get the feeling he believes in his own assessment. There were some entertaining chapters: what he did after 9/11 and what fame is like. Unfortunately, he twists things to showcase how smart he thinks he is and the audience is lost. Maybe the first book was better....
