I met Burt Reynolds when he was involved in making the first major movie, filmed entirely in Arkansas. I was a kid interrupting his lunch at the Fellowship Hall of the First United Methodist Church in Benton to get an autograph. He was friendly and gracious and insisted my buddy and I should also get the autographs if another guy eating there named Bo Hopkins.
I take him at his word during the reading of this book, and it seems to ring true. He talks about pretty much everything I have ever wondered about.
His voice is not always strong, but when he goes into character it always is, and the emotions are real. I dare you to hear him say that when his dad finally said he loved him that it made him cry and it still does only to hear it in his voice, and not cry a little yourself.
I enjoyed this immensely. My autograph from Burt was signed to me from, "your friend, Burt Reynolds". I always thought of him as a friend. I still do.

This is a wonderful book read by Burt with a lot of emotions. The book is filled with his life stories of people he has loved and people he's disliked. I very much loved this book especially when he speaks on Sally Field and Dom DeLuise. I would recommend this book with all my heart!

i've been waiting long time for this book to come out in audio version and was really thrilled to download it. i couldn't help but feel so disappointed, sorry to say almost angry that Burt had to read it in his own voice. The reading or shall i say mumbling made it so difficult to enjoy the book or even understand. To give you a clear picture, imagine a person who has had a massive heart attack yesterday, hooked up to breathing machines in a hospital and he is reading the story. He seemed to have difficulty in every word and at times i couldn't tell if he was crying or about to go to sleep.
i know his health is not at its best but i wish he did what Arnold did in his book and got someone to read it. That way we could have enjoyed the story much more. i eventually finished it but still feel angry at his reading. Interesting life but his reading makes it very very difficult to enjoy the book.
