In this entertaining memoir, the irrepressible Regis Philbin - consummate talk show host, man about town, loving husband, father, and yes, obsessive sports fan - looks back at his years in show business. How I Got This Way is filled with stories of lessons learned with extraordinary, and often unsuspecting, teachers: David Letterman, Donald Trump, Jack Nicholson; three legendary Notre Dame coaches; and, of course, longtime cohosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Kelly ‘Pippa’ Ripa, as well as his own lovely wife, Joy.
Whether he’s revealing what really drove him “bonkers” on the set of Seinfeld, how he survived the first known bomb scare on live TV, or poignant memories of his last moments with his idol and dear friend, Jack Paar, Regis packs every page with his signature heart, wit, dynamic energy, and gratitude for everything life has brought him.

well, i was so looking forward to listening to it but as it turns out, to me, reege is not a very good story teller--at times it was tedious and on several occasions i thought about deleting it--i wanted to hear more about his family, etc--i would recommend it but with reservations
i would have had someone with more aptitude in story telling--
just his monotone and just his lack of enthusiasim for his life's story
no, i don't see it and nobody could physically play reege but reege
i think he is a good television host and i love watching him with kelly--
Entertaining, and well told
