I recommend this book to anyone considering a career in comedy or entertainment in general. The insight and the sheer amount of experience Jerry has are invaluable.

Also, I laughed out loud a couple times.

It all started with Dean Martin... this book, in a way, and my fascination with Martin and Lewis, Jerry Lewis and now Dean Martin. Along the way I became curious about Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Marilyn Monroe and The Les Brown Orchestra, Count Basie and other big bands.

But prior to this book, I had read "Dean and Me, a Love Story", by Jerry Lewis and James Kaplan, which made me very curious about Dean and Jerry. But, much of what is in that book is also covered by "Jerry Lewis in Person."

A frank and compelling look into Lewis' early life, his break into fame with Dean Martin, and the years beyond.
