This was an interesting book. Dick Van Dyke was in my peripheral vision throughout my child hood. Someone I was familiar with but did not give much thought. I am glad I read this book. Dick Van Dyke seems like a happy, funny, complete person. Someone I admire. Van Dyke had only one wife and one mistress. Almost a record in Hollywood. I love the stories about his relationship with Stan Laurel and Buster Keaton. How he found Stan’s number in the phone book one day and just called him up. I admire Van Dyke for his work ethic. Hard working but always with a sense of humor. He seemed like a very giving person. Giving a piece of himself to the less fortunate. Van Dyke is 85 years old but still working and having fun. I hope I have 1/10th the life Van Dyke has had. It would be complete!!
