The author's kind spirit, evident from the first word, is one you'll not want to disengage from. It's obvious why Mr. Benson and Ms. DeVito are devoted to each other, and their fans will find validation that their fondness is well founded. Robby's compassion and ethos are waaay off the charts, and well... everyone should have a Karla DeVito.
Enriched with medical information, harrowing cautionary tales, and links to essential resources, the story is not all clinical. There is a lot of endearing and entertaining autobiographical material before and inbetween episodes where the story turns to his health. By that time, you like him so much that it's become personal. You're there with him, and you care. He is brave and considerate to a fault, using his uber-compassion and humor to protect you from freaking out over the ordeals he's endured.
Robby recalls an exemplary, challenged and accomplished life, with absolute humility and good humor. For anyone with a heart, it is impossible to put the book - or the man - down. We should all be so lucky to have such people. But they're right here for you in this book.
Note - if you buy the Kindle version here: Due to the format's technical limitations, in the Kindle version most of the creative enhancements Mr. B has worked so hard to include are a couple steps removed from the seemlessly integrated way they are presented in the original. As you go through the Kindle book, various links appear to where songs, film clips and slide shows can be found. These elements are like a garnish to an already fulfilling meal.Read more ›
What an incredible journey indeed! This book drew me in from the start, and continued to hold my interest through several days when I was unable to put it down. And how masterfully Robby weaves his 50-year show biz tale throughout the treacherous shoals of his medical problems! Wow. I had no idea! I was (alternately) laughing and crying throughout this all-too-quick read.
Part of the joy of this book is the weaving in and out of so many great songs, photographs and film clips. I'm old enough to have seen all of Robby's films during their first theatrical runs. Seeing those great clips brought back all the films and the social importance many of Robby's roles had, and have! Those scenes are timeless and fresh as the day we saw them on big screens in big theaters. I think this format of including so much mixed media is a great new direction for publishing, and really serves to provide a frame around the written words, much like the frame of a painting, perhaps. Hearing Robby speak the Introduction was amazing and for the remainder of the book, I kept hearing his voice, which is so unique. Just yesterday, Robby appeared on THE VIEW on ABC, and looked absolutely great!Read more ›
The book begins with the Preface narrated by Robby. His trademark voice immediately draws the reader/viewer/listener in. And from there, the ride only gets better.
Do yourself a favor, and get this wonderful book. You will not disappointed. And I have no doubt you will be recommending it to many others.
