it was amazing

This book is fantastic. Not only is Alda an entertaining writer, but he offers many insights into the process of both writing and acting which I found fascinating. Also a bonus is the fact that he and seem to be very similar. For example, when asked to recall what was going through his mind at a random moment, his answer was so inanely detailed that his listeners called him insane...but it was the same kind of perseverating thought process that I go through day after day. Wonderful.

A word of warning: if you're looking for a memoir about M*A*S*H, this isn't it. Alda spends a little over a chapter discussing the show, and then he mostly focuses on his own process of acting, writing, and directing.
