Serious and interesting. He was honest about his hang-ups. The part about Gilda Ratner was interesting too. I only chuckled a few times. If he wasn't one of my very favorite actors it wouldn't have interested me.

I LOVED this book! I was a fan of Gilda Radnor, so there was a connection for me. And of course he does write about their marriage, but also about the movies he wrote, Like Young Frankenstein, and acted in, and his life now. I read it in two days ,and I'm a slow reader. It is not small -- just shows how fascinating I found it.

I found this to be a bit creepy! It wasn't awful, but Wilder seemed a lot better to me before I read the book. A big part of it was the incredible level of (unimportant, OMG) detail, like the color of some woman's dress he thought was pretty once. What? And I didn't like that he was feeling virtuous about not dating other women while Gilda was dying. Huh? I think one other reviewer said she liked him more before reading the book and I have to agree.

I really liked this book... Fascinating, & since I adored Gilda, it gave me another side of that story...

I am a fan of Gene Wilder so I liked the book. My only complaint is that I wished the book was longer!

I loved this book! I have always loved Gene Wilder and this book gave me a bit of insight into him as a person and into my favorite roles that he played.

I liked it. The reader is funny, charming, witty and has a great observation of life and love. And the author isn't half bad, either. :)

Gene Wilder has had and is having a great life. If you are a fan at all of his movies, you will love this book.

I picked this up one night in a bookstore and couldn't put it down. Autobiographical book about Gene Wilder, from childhood to current.

I am big Gene Wilder fan, but I think I like him less after reading this book. He is a talented writer.

WONDERFUL book! Narrated by the author, who has had a most interesting life. I loved him in Silver Streak and that he was married to Gilda Radner. A smart, sweet and charming man who is also a gifted actor with a melancholy past.

read by the author. Not what I expected and disappointing.
