As the daughter of famed comedian Danny Thomas, Marlo Thomas grew up in an atmosphere where primetime laughs came not just from TV, but also from frequent visits to her home from the likes of Bob Hope and George Burns. In her family, laughter became "the cushion for life," her father insisting that adults should laugh as frequently as children do. Growing Up Laughing is her tribute to her father and the philosophy of good cheer and good works that he instilled in her. This feel-good memoir possesses an activist side too: The former star of That Girl writes candidly about problems that women face in the workplace and elsewhere. A top-seller; now in a paperback and a NOOKbook.
