Review

It was my pleasure to work together with Alan in the first movie version of H.G. Wells The Time Machine and it is with the same pleasure that I surely recommend this, his latest book. A really good read. Enjoy. --Rod Taylor

Alan Young loves show business, and that passion comes through on every page of this entertaining book. From his early days on radio to his unexpected success with Mister Ed , he vividly recounts the ups and downs of a wonderful career. --Leonard Maltin

Format: Paperback
I bought the first version of Mr. Ed and Me when it came out in 1994, but this new expanded version entitled Mr. Ed and Me and More is far superior. With much added text by Alan Young and extensively illustrated with many more rare photographs, this new more elaborate version is well worth the money. This is a quirky and delightful memoir by the man who worked with the world's most famous talking horse, Mister Ed, in one of the most beloved television shows of all time. The book also contains a new section written by actress Connie Hines who played Carol Post, Alan Young's wife on the Mister Ed show. She writes for the first time about her background, life, and, of course, Mister Ed. Alan Young has a charming writing style and it is easy to see the fun and warmth of the show reflected in the man. Full of behind the scenes information about the Mister Ed show, Young also writes about his film roles including the classic film version of H.G. Wells's The Time Machine (1960) directed by George Pal, and his other notable motion pictures such as Mr. Belvedere Goes to College, Androcles and the Lion, Tom Thumb, etc. Young has also provided the voice for Scrooge McDuck for Walt Disney cartoon films. Highly recommended, and a perfect gift book for friends

I love Mister Ed. I was pleased to buy this book at the Mid-Atlantic Nostalgia Convention and more pleased to have purchased a copy with Alan Young's signature inside. Clint Eastwood, George Burns, Warner Bros., they are all here. Story after story after story. The kind of autobiography and behind-the-scenes stories we all love to hear and read. Rarely do autobiographies fall into the category of enjoyable reads. This one is certainly recommended if you love Mister Ed.

Format: Paperback
Mister Ed and Me and More! is the autobiography of actor Alan Young, perhaps most famous for his sitcom role as Wilbur Post, co-starring with the "talking" horse Mr. Ed. Born in England, raised in Canada, yet often playing the role of "the all-American boy", Young tells of his youth, his friendships with Hollywood elite, his movie career, and much more. A dollop of tongue-in-cheek humor as well as an assortment of vintage black-and-white photographs rounds out this genial memoir. Especially recommended for fans of Alan Young - or Mr. Ed!

Full of many rare photos with funny captions. This updated book is so entertaining I read it in three days. Work of course prevented me from reading it in one sitting!
Alan (Angus) Young is a master story teller and you can just picture yourself in the cold Canadian mountains as you read.
A must for all fans of good writing and of course Alan Young himself!

I'm a huge Mr. Ed fan - always have been, always will be. And for anyone who's as big a fan as I am this book is a MUST! I read this book in two sittings, and I never laughed so much in my life. It is so well written and full of wonderful triva. Alan Young has knocked this one out of the ball park. Thank you, Alan Young, for one of the best reads of my life.

I read a very interesting interview with Alan Young on the Classic Television Showbiz website and I immediately went to Amazon for the books by Alan Young.

I found this book as well as his book, "There's No Business Like Show Business...Was."

The latter book was smaller than the first, so I read it first. It was very nice and an easy read.

As a matter of fact, this book is also an easy read, but in the middle of the book pretty much the entire contents of "...Show Business...Was" is included.

I cannot, and will not say, that every word and story is included in the "Mister Ed" book, but I will say I skipped over a lot of stuff I had already read.

I am not sorry I bought both books, but I thought I would offer that advice to future buyers.

The material about the TV show was very interesting and gave a lot of background information that I had not known before.

I liked this book and the other book. I hope you will also enjoy them.

Mr. Young tells his and Mister Ed 's story in a humorous and understandably insightful way. If you loved Mister Ed as a child and still love him now, this book will be a treasure to own. The shared photos are rare and fun. Mr. Young knows how to tell great life stories and really reel in the reader.
He solidifies the fact that Mister Ed was a consummate actor and loving friend.
Thanks for sharing this with us all, Alan!
