I bought this book as a present for my husband but ended up reading it first! Like most people my age I was raised with Dallas - I can remember when all I wanted from life was a "Who shot J.R" mug! I have to admit that this book was a slight disapointment. I patiently read through all the begining stuff, leading on to various small parts in plays and TV programmes. I finally got to the "I Dream of Jeannie" and just when I thought he would never get there, Larry finally starts talking about Dallas. By this stage however most of the book is over and I realise to my great disapointment that there only are about 2 chapters dedicated to his life as a Dallas star.
Don't get me wrong, the rest of Larry's life is all well and good and made an enjoyable read but, for me and others who are too young to really remember the pre Dallas years, it's not really what you would expect.
For true Larry Hagman fans only.
