    A HOW TO GUIDE FOR THE MODERN PRANKSTER

    This book made me laugh hysterically, because Bob Zmuda is the only man still alive who was in on every joke, only he can truly tell the amusing anecdotes of Andy's unknown jokes (the REAL stories behind FRIDAYS, Jerry Lawler, and a funny Airplane story) This book basically states how to dupe your friends in a near step by step basis. It truly shows the brilliance of both Kaufman and Zmuda.

    If you love Andy or hate Andy, this is a Must Read

    Bob Zmuda does tell all in this backstage look at the Genius and Psychosis of Andy Kaufman. Bob takes us inside the Preformance Art, and Psychologocal Drama that was Andy Kaufman. Mr. Zumda's own side stories of Mr. Big could have been a book in its self. Barnes & Nobel gave me a great deal for a keeper Hard Cover Classic.

    The Man's a Genius

    I only knew Andy Kauffman from Taxi,as Latka,and I knew that I loved him then,but after reading this book and seeing Man On the Moon I think the man was a genius and possibly the funniest person who lived weather he meant to be or not!

    Do not call Andy Kaufman a Comedian

    Time and time again people refer to Andy Kaufman as a comedian. There are two types of comedians and Andy does not fit into either heading. Stand-up or improv. Andy considered himself a song and dance man, something you will read in the book and see in the movie. This book goes into Andy's thinking in detail. It tells us how he wanted to have the crowd not just laugh, but react. He believed the audience should fill a wide variety of emotions during his show, not just humor. Bob Zmuda, being one of two people who actually knew Kaufman does and excellent job of getting the truth out there. This is not just a good read, but an amazing read. Andy is considered to be both insane and brillant...Depending on your frame of mind you will be able to stick him under the heading you think fits best after reading this. Rememeber, however, Andy was not a comedian!!! He didn't want to make you 'Just' laugh, he wanted to pull every emotion he could out of you. This, for some people, is very scarey.

    Best Friend Tells It Best

    This is an involving, first hand account of many of the most influential events in Kaufman's life. I have never read a biography quite as interesting as this. Zmuda writes with a passion for living, as he lived through the times and events. If you love Kaufman, behavioral science, or life in general, READ THIS BOOK.
