I have been a Johnny Carson fan since 1968. I was 4 and one night I begged my mom to stay up late with her and dad to watch The Tonight Show on Friday nights. I was hooked then and I still watch the show nightly. The book is a quick read, it's good and it kept me turning the pages. I still love and admire "the entertainer" Johnny Carson. I'd recommend this book to a friend but I would not give it as a gift. It is important to remember that this book is a biography and not a autobiography. Conclusion: Sometimes it's best to not polish the Silver if it's already shiny enough for you.
