Not that I'm trying to be dramatic. I've just always thought (still do) that 'Magnum' was a really good show. And one of the best things about it, to me, was the rapport of the four main characters. Even when Thomas and Higgins were blowing up each other's possessions, you could tell they had a fundamental like and respect for one another. I always believed that was true of the four actors as well, and suspected that Tom Selleck really is a great guy. I owe Larry Manetti a vote of thanks for proving that all my suspicions were correct.
There's a lot of name-dropping in this book, but hey -- that seems to be the way Manetti has lived his life. Lots of great actors guest-starred on the series, and the author has gotten to know many more, as well. I should make it clear to any interested reader that this book is NOT an in-depth 'companion' to the series: Manetti talks about the show, obviously, and discusses some of the development of his character, Orville 'Rick' Wright, and some of his more memorable scenes and episodes. And there is a reasonably helpful episode guide at the end of the book. But it's not the author's purpose to probe the development of Thomas Magnum's psyche, trace the evolving nature of the Magnum-Higgins relationship, or fill in the 'backstory' of the various characters.
No, Larry Manetti's purpose is to tell stories. And boy, does he. I could easily picture myself sitting at a table listening to Manetti tell these stories in person.Read more ›

Very interesting stories. But mostly about Larry. Glad I bought it; but wish it covered a lot more than the general goings on. Except for Larry, that is. Read morePublished 5 months ago by BEBE A SLINSKI

This book is by Larry Manetti - who played "Rick" in the TV show.
Right away it is apparent that Larry is no writer. Don't expect literary genius here. Read more
