Astonishing story of how this poor boy becomes a major playwright. Those people who think being in the entertainment business is glamorous or easy would do well to read this anxiety ridden, sometimes heartbreaking, often harrowing but ultimately uplifting story. one of the best autobiographies I've ever listened to. The narrator was perfection.

Good but not great
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Yes, especially if you like theater. The story, about the early days of Broadway, is fascinating and Hart finds himself in all sorts of interesting situations.
What other book might you compare Act One to and why?
A little bit to Neil Simon's memoirs, especially in showing how playwriting actually happens.
What didn’t you like about Jim Meskimen’s performance?
He was way too slow a reader, pauses too long. I had to listen to it at 1.5 speed and it still sounded normal.
