I picked up a copy at a signing recently in California and couldn't put it down. The series of interviews are not just with celebrities, but real legends, with a lot of other non-celebrity types thrown in. So many backstories about icons like Steve Allen or George Carlin are just fascinating. I liked the fact most were relatively short interviews and it was interesting that some of the same questions were asked, so you could get a real understanding of trends in terms of what successful people did for entertainment or who motivated them. Excellent motivational book.
