Reviews

""The Dick Van Dyke Show" is still my all-time favorite sitcom. Only now when I watch it, I make sure I have a copy of this book nearby, and you should, too. Vince really brings the show, and the people who made it, to life." "--"Dan Castellaneta, Actor, "The Simpsons" (from his Foreword)
"There've been a lot of books about shows where it's all factual -- but they just don't capture the essence of what's going on. But, it's like you'd been there the whole time. How you got so much information and put it down is really amazing. It was a lot of fun for me to read. I learned a lot. A terrific book." "--"Jay Sandrich, Assistant Director of the pilot episode, later director of "Mary Tyler Moore Show"
"A great book. To be included in this study is quite an honor." "--"John Rich, Director

"What an unexpected pleasure to read a book on a subject about which I thought I knew everything, only to find out that I didn't. A very serious contribution to understanding what really were the best years of my theatrical life. I'd say it was a wonderfully scholarly work--but I won't, because I don't want to scare people away from a book that's as much fun to read as this is." "--"Carl Reiner, producer/creator of "The Dick Van Dyke Show"
