really liked it

I'll admit that I don't read many celebrity biographies, so I can't really say if it's accurate, but Alda at one point talks about the usual biography being a chronicle of the celebrity's "rise to stardom", as it were. Alda brings it up because that's really not what his book is about. There is a chapter on M*A*S*H, but it's not the end of the book, it's somewhere near the middle. Alda writes more about self discovery, and not only with regards to acting, but primarily in learning how to deal with his mother's schizophrenia. It's a very odd, but touching book, and the bottom line is that if you enjoy Alda's wit on television, you will enjoy his wit in this book. Now I need to get my hands on Alda's second book.
