If you're looking for a dishy tell-all book about Hollywood celebrity, you won't find it here. The author has made a career playing stalwart fellows, and his memoirs are no exception. Narrator Marc Cashman is an excellent fit for this book. His voice is amiable, conversational, and breezy, and he tells Alda's tales with nary a wink or a nod. Cashman reads each word perfectly, and he gets almost every mood right. He does his best work, though, when it comes to the jokes. Cashman's voice is light and expressive, qualities that help him set up each situation and nail the punch line. He complements Alda's style and produces a very worthwhile read.
