From Publishers Weekly
"In this ebullient, often rancorous autobiography, the stage, film and TV actor describes vividly the hassles that cost him the plum role in The Graduate and numerous other setbacks before he starred in The Heartbreak Kid . Instructive and entertaining, his story includes tidbits on Mike Nichols, Elaine May, Roman Po lanski, Ellen Burstyn, Simon & Garfunkel, and many other luminaries, none more intriguing than the un sinkable Grodin," said PW.

I think it should be on the syllabus of every entry level acting class.
My brother is contemplating going to film school, and I've already sent him his own copy.
The book really is an autobiography, but being that pretty much his entire life was spent in show business, its a good guide as to what to do and how to overcome the many and constant rejections involved in a life in the business.
Seriously, this really is a must read.
