it was amazing

I'm a big fan of Steve Martin. I've read his other books, read his articles in The New Yorker, watched all of his movies, and loved his stage play, Picasso at the Lapin Agile." He's a genius.

This book is beautifully written and is a fascinating look at the process of evolving a personal point of view. The dust jacket called this "a superb testament to the sheer tenacity, focus, and daring of one of the greatest and most iconoclastic comedians of all time." I agree completely.
