All I can say is that this man had such a neat life. He had so many chances to become well known or famous. From writing, shows and even bands he was in. One of which had members that started a famous group. But you will have to read to find out more on that. There is no way I am going to ruin it for you.
You will learn about his family struggles. From those who did drugs. (up until like 12 years ago) To people to hurt him in more ways than one. You will feel so bad when you find out everything he has had to go through. The things that happened in his childhood also effected him in his 20s- 30s. You will see the proof of this when you read about his thoughts, arguments and even his marriage. I am almost sure that before you are even finished this book, you will be mad at yourself for ever being mad at him.
I got really inspired when reading this book. People always tell me I can think fast and that I am funny. So I just yesterday started writing the jokes and ideas I get down. As well as recording songs I thinks of right after I think of them. I know that you will feel inspired in your own way. Whether it be with something in your future, in you present or in you past. You will want to work harder to be he best that you can be at the things you do.
In the end you will get to learn some personal details about a man who has been doing things for people almost his entire life. From the man who was one of the founders of Saturday Night Live to the father and husband who puts the Christmas tree up every Christmas eve on so many televisions. You will really be surprised at all he has went through and all he has had a chance to do. The neat thing is that he really just got lucky A LOT. Through all these lucky breaks a man who is amazing at so many things that are important to so many people emerged. You may see that he is not all that different from you. You then will start to understand the man that is Chevy Chase as if you were there with him through his entire life. I know I did. I would like to end all this thanking Chevy Chase and the author Rena Fruchter.
I see many have given this a bad review. I can't understand why. You learn a lot about Chase and the entire time you are interested in finding out more. I guess there is always someone that could do something better but I am happy with what I have. It's like people are mad because the book does not talk bad about him. The poor guy made us laugh for decades. He may have made some mistakes in his life but who among us has not? I am a 23 year old guy who has been inspired and learned more about a guy I have always liked. So as all that goes. I'm happy with the book.
An entertaining read at least. I still love you, Chevy.
