Bob Newhart's memoirs cover much more than the usual background check and abbreviated biographical information. Instead, Newhart talks about comedy and what makes comedy work, giving some great examples from masters like Jack Benny, Jonathan Winters, and Carol Burnett. Never one to take himself seriously, Newhart also explains how he found himself making a career out of stammering stories and oddball behaviours.
