really liked it

This was a enjoyable read. I don't think that I could have sat down and read it through in one siting, or even a few days, hence the time it took me to get through it. (about 3-4 weeks) It was very interesting to see how Steve Martin put together his famous acts, and to discover why he gave it all up. It was fun to learn about his life through his own memories.

Amanda Let me know how this is...I just may have to swipe it for a bit :)


Christina It's pretty good so far. Seems that there are a lot of little stories about why he is who he is and how he got to where he is at all smooshed together in book form. Some parts are funny, others sad and a great majority are "well...ok..."
