As a younger man I was still honing my interest in show business as a person-with-disability. I grew up having a television set as a playmate. My CP and crutches were a little challenging outdoors. Well along comes LIFE GOES ON featuring Chris Burke an actor with downs. This drew my keen interest as did Geri Jewell a few years earlier. LIFE GOES ON was the result of a "brave man" Michael Braverman to create an accurate picture of living with a disability. Herbie J Pilato presents an excellent backstage viewpoint of what it took to produce this ground-breaking television series. Mr. Pilato's production experience provides such clear insight to the process I learned a lot about television. His interviews with both cast and crew reveals the development of the stories and how honestly they were written and portrayed. Along with some of the more challenging days on set. For anyone interested in seeing more opportunities for performers-with-disabilities in the media please read this book and learn from the best. Of which I would certainly include Herbie J Pilato!

Herbie J Pilato has done it again!

I had no idea that there was a book about the ground-breaking TV show, "Life Goes On." I just loved that show - and I love this book!

Like all of Pilato's books, he just doesn't trivialize the shows or personalities he profiles, he presents them in the historic context of their times and chronicles their sometimes hidden "messages." Certainly, with this guide to "Life Goes On" (which dealt with some very tough issues circumventing around those suffering from AIDS, and those with Down syndrome), Pilato explores the heart and soul of the show. And what's more, Pilato makes sure to interview as many of the given-show's actors, writers, directors, etc. as possible...as he does here with "Life" Story - The Book of "Life Goes On" - which I completely recommend.

Just a lovely television literary companion.

Thank you, Mr. Pilato - for this book - and your entire body of work!

Life Goes On

Nonfiction

"Every day we all get up, and try again."

Not one person in the world is immune to good or bad that takes place in our daily lives. Some are fortunate; others are not. Some are successful; others are not. But whatever happens for better or for worse, life goes on. Corky was both one of the unfortunate ones as well as one of the fortunate ones.

On the one hand he had Down syndrome, but on the other hand he was the star of Life Goes On. Corky never let his health issues stand in his way. He did whatever he pleased. This was one of the best family shows on television to date. Only a handful of others could be comparable. Two that stand out as a show dealing with life issues are Seventh Heaven and Everwood.

Pilato tells the story as the progression of the shows plot line covering illnesses such as Down syndrome, and HIV/AIDS, as well as everyday family life issues including dating and marriage. The style he uses lets even those who didn't have the opportunity to watch the show, grasp the essence of what Pilato is trying to bring across in his book Life Goes On.

I liked the fact that Pilatto used an easy to read reading level. This made for a quick read. I didn't like having to read the repeated script at the back, having already read about it in the first part of the book. I felt the repetition wasn't necessary.
