Publisher's Summary

That stammer. Those basset-hound eyes. That bone-dry wit. There has never been another comedian like Bob Newhart. In this, his first audiobook ever, Newhart gives us his brilliant and bemused twist on a multitude of topics, including flying, the trials of a family holiday in a Winnebago, and more serious subjects, such as golf. And, of course, there are side-splittingly funny stories from his life and career. Who else has a drinking game named after him? ("Hi, Bob!") This isn't a memoir like most memoirs. It's an audiobook only Bob Newhart could have conceived, with his unique worldview and irrepressibly wry humor. Oh, and there's a fair bit of plain silliness, too.

I love Bob!

I agree with Monica from Woodstock, GA. How can you not love Bob? I was a kid when the first Bob Newhart show was on TV, so had not heard all the old routines. Perhaps if I had the book would be a rehash, but for me it was just a joy to have Bob back in my living room.

Great read

Newhart's comedy sprinkled in here and there with a light biography of Newhart's experiences make this a great read. This is really more of Bob Newhart telling "behind the scenes" stories of events in his life with his dry wit than a bio. Thoroughly enjoyed this, only wish it was longer.
