Product Description

Best-selling author A. E. Hotchner's intimate account of his 52-year friendship with his pal Paul Newman.

A. E. Hotchner first met Paul Newman in 1956 when the then relatively unknown actor assumed the lead role in Hotchner's first television play, based on an Ernest Hemingway story. The project elevated both men from relative obscurity to recognition, and began a close and trusting friendship that lasted until Newman's death in 2008.

Here, Hotchner presents a complicated, unpredictable, fun-loving, talented man, and takes the listener along on their adventures. The pair traveled extensively, skippered a succession of bizarre boats, confounded the business world, scored triumphs on the stage, and sustained their friendship through good times and bad. Most notably, they started Newman's Own as a prank and watched it morph into a major enterprise that has given its $260 million in profit to charities, including the Hole in the Wall Camps worldwide, dedicated to helping thousands of children with life-threatening illnesses.

This is the story of an unusual bond and a tribute to the acclaimed actor who gave to the world as much as the world gave him.

5.0 out of 5 stars PL was quite a guy 30 Mar 2010
By M. Lee
Format:Hardcover
If you're a fan of Paul Newman, read this book. It might surprise some and will definitely make you laugh. We should all be so lucky to have a friendship like these two had - it sounds like they both had "a helluva ride". Mr. Hotchner, thanks for sharing, but I'm left wanting more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a straight forward autobiography 3 Aug 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This isn't the story of how Paul Newman got into and continued to make films throughout his life. This is the story of a friendship with anecdotes of life between the films as well as a few about some of them. You learn about what Paul thought of his acting and films but also about fishing, his marriage, racing and then a lot about the Newman's Own company and the subsequent charity work. There are quite a lot of laugh out loud moments. I loved this book because it was written by a great friend not just an autobiographer.

I love it. I am a fan.
A great man, always starring in well made films. You don't get a bad film if he is the star
