* ""The only other thing that need be said about 'World on a String' is that sitting alone reading it, I found myself erupting in laughter at least a dozen times."" (Playbill.com, December 2012)
"John Pizzarelli has the gift of gab in more ways than one. A great storyteller, he can spin the tiniest anecdote about the musician's life into a sidesplitting absurdist yarn."
, The New York Times
"They say great musicians should play, not talk. John Pizzarelli is the exception. His book is as breezy, melodic, and lyrical as one of his concerts, and he captures both the love and laughter of a life in music with virtuosic skill."
—Mitch Albom, author of The Time Keeper and Tuesdays with Morrie
"John Pizzarelli is one of the most entertaining performers you'll ever see on a stage. He's perfection: a musician, a singer, a comedian. And now with World on a String, it turns out that John's a perfect author, too. You're going to love it."
—Regis Philbin, television host
"World on a String is engaging, well written, heartfelt, and insightful. I'm impressed by John's recall and by the way he can recreate a moment and convey a warm sense of all these characters. I love that he even included Paul Lynde!"
—Michael Feinstein, performer and composer
