The jacket description of this books sounds like it should read like an auto-biography. It's not.

Each chapter of the book is centered on a public speech that the author gave. Several are from funerals, several are from graduation speeches. The chapters lead up to how the author got into the situation and how he got the ideas for the speech.

There are several good ideas and the book made me want to know about Alan Alda. Even at the very end. Not good for a book that is shelved under 'biography'.
