I enjoyed reading Born Standing Up: A Comic's Life by Steve Martin when I read it last year. I enjoyed it so much I read it in it's entirety in one sitting. It was funny, insightful and interesting. I related to Steve Martin's experiences growing up in southern California in the 1960's because I, too, grew up there at that time. His gentle humor in relating his stories that made up his life and his hesitants to "tell-all" about the people he encountered or had relationships with made it a pleasure to read.

I highly recommend this book. I appreciate his comedy even more after reading this book.
