I really liked this book. It was like 300+ pages of a Burns and Allen routine, alternating with George Burns himself. It was a lot of fun to get a glimpse into Vaudeville and early radio days, and then into the movies and TV. I kept laughing at some of the Gracie-isms and then the genuine humor in the daily lives of two brilliant comedians. Lots of little things I found out that I didn't know, as well.

Did you know that Gracie never actually gave the line "Goodnight, Gracie"?
