I am going to by this book

  • Book Rating: 5/5

I have always liked Dick Cavett, and this book reinforced why. Smart and funny, I was entertained from beginning to end. This book is coming out in paperback in November, and I am going to purchase a copy so that I can skim it, refer to the references, and reread the anecdotes.
