"These short memories, of the people Burnett met and interviewed over the years, on- and off-camera, bring it back — the golden age of variety shows....Burnett has a writer's eye for the moment, the detail, the slip that reveals character. She's never mean and always grateful."
—Los Angeles Times
"Carol was a huge star on television because she was funny, daring, and always genuine. We loved Carol because we felt we knew her. With this book, we do. She trusts us with her personal anecdotes, happy, sad, hilarious and poignant. Thank you Carol. "
"I read This Time Together in one sitting and when I finished I felt like Carol had been sitting beside me telling me these wonderful stories of her life. It's funny, it's endearing and very moving. I cannot recommend it highly enough."
"I grew up watching Carol Burnett. She's an amazing actress, talented writer and legendary comedienne. She inspired me to do what I'm doing today. And believe me, if I knew how to read, I would definitely read this book."
" I love this book because it's written the way she talks--nothing stilted, nothing distanced. You'll read it in one gulp (I did) and then you'll read it again. She's an excellent writer--so spot-on intelligent and hilarious.
"Reading Carol Burnett's book, THIS TIME TOGETHER, makes me realize that every American family prays that they can have someone as lovely as Carol as their next door neighbor."

I have such fond memories of Carol growing up. My family and I would watch her weekly variety show...it was almost like a tradition! The cast, guest stars, fabulous costumes and great skits were so worth the wait. It's a shame that variety shows are no longer a part of today's television viewing options.
Reading This Time Together: Laughter and Reflection, allowed me a chance to reminisce about my childhood and the reasons why I love Ms. Burnett so much. With every word, I could hear her voice and found myself smiling as she told her stories of her humble beginnings, and ultimately how she made it to television.
The behind the scenes look into her career and family life were inspiring. Carol Burnett is the epitome of class. I don't think there is anything that could tarnish her image. She represents what we should all aspire to be, whether celebrity or not.
This Time Together: Laughter and Reflection by Carol Burnett is a heartwarming collection of stories from one of the most beloved actresses of our time. It is also a reminder of when life was much simpler, and all we had to worry about was where we were going to sit when we turned on her show. In my house, there were no bad seats!
I loved reading this book and now hope to read the others she has written. If you're looking for some lighthearted reading, and want to put a smile on your face, then pick up a copy of This Time Together: Laughter and Reflection!
The recollections cover her childhood, her early acting years in NYC, her variety show, later life projects, her family, and other actors. I grew up watching the Carol Burnett Show. My mom and I would watch together on Saturday nights. That was hands down the best night of television on CBS. I have always loved and admired Ms. Burnett both for her many talents and her humility.
The main criticism of this book seems to be that it lacks salacious gossip. I'm sure Ms. Burnett has had experiences with people behaving badly. Instead, she prefers to focus on the joy and goodness of others. And in October 2016, I think that is a good thing! While we can't fully know the people we see on TV, I have always had the impression that Ms. Burnett is a genuinely good person. This book is written by a woman who worked hard to succeed and does not take her success for granted. She has a true fan's awe regarding other actors and that is fun to hear. I think this book is as warm and funny as the author.
