I just finished this book and found it to be thorougly enjoyable. I have been a fan of Andy Williams for years. When I was a young girl and my parents took me to see him in person in Lake Tahoe. I still remember it to this day.

I watched his tv show and remember the Osmonds, who were my age but I didn't care, I had a MAJOR crush on Andy. His Christmas Shows were my favorites (except for the Williams Brothers all being dressed in the same color!!!).

I picked up this book because I am a fan but in all honesty I knew little about him. This book is about his career from an early age singing with his brothers in Iowa up to the present, owning and performing in his Moon River Theatre in Branson, Missouri and everything in between. Great book and well worth the price.

I was surprised to be interested in reading this book, but the beginnings of his story drew me in somewhat, so I kept reading. However, as Andy gained success, his storytelling reflected the ego that no doubt helped him get where he did and he obviously lacked the humility of his early years. The vignettes he includes describing others invariably seem to place those others in a more unflattering light than good ol' Andy. Particularly over the top was his telling of June Haver's drunken reveal of her initimate romping with her husband. If she or her husband had written it, that would be one thing, but it is not Andy Williams' place to do so. Was it necessary for him to specify that in his long-term relationship between his two marriages in which they had such a wild time, she was the identified alcoholic? Would these people and the others that he wrote about approve of his sharing these types of details? Obviously he cannot illustrate his positives without contrasting with others' negatives. Not cool.
