Overview

In this autobiography, Rafkin recounts his behind-the-scenes experiences working in more than eighty television series. Some of the most beloved sitcoms of all timeThe Andy Griffith Show, The Dick Van Dyke Show, M*A*S*H, Murphy Brown, and Coach - adorn his directorial resume and illuminate his ability to change with the times and persevere in the young world of show business. Rafkin recounts how his directing of temperamental actors, as he confronted their frustrations and dodged their blows, made life on the TV set a world unto itself. Indeed, having a good sense of humor helped him survive three divorces and as many open-heart surgeries.
