This is the first book of George's I have read and I wasn't sure what to expect from a 90yo. Most if it is just ramblings from an old man. He doesn't get to the 'wisdom' until the last few chapters - he says why himself. I like it because no one tells a story like George Burns - in person or in print and the interludes (short sections between chapters) are good and some address of those things that you never though about before. Very amusing book by a much loved man. A short, quick read of a book. A good 'take along' for times when you know you will be waiting for short periods of time and will need to stop and not feel that you will lose your place and forget what came before. I hope his other books contain a little more substance. I miss you, George.
