Collector's Edition gold leaf, gold dust jacket book written by George Burns for his fans to thank them for their support and devotion throughout his 100 birthday. Rare, never told before stories by G. Burns with his usual wit, humor and charm.

He tells stories of his favorite encounters with people that he had close relationships with such as Bob Hope, Ann Margaret, Al Jolson and many many more.

I actually think this is one of the better books I have read in the category of non-fiction biographies where the author tells you surprising things. I didn't expect some of what he actually was willing to talk about.

Great read, interesting and most of all of a legendary performer that I have great respect for. Fast read!

The great comedian celebrates his one hundredth birthday with a selection of his favorite and funniest stories that include reminiscences about his own past and anecdotes about friends, family, and colleagues. I loved this boook - it takes little time to read, and his optimistic, joyful spirit shines through.
