Since a child I loved the Naked Gun movies, I decided now was the time to get the stars book. Leslie Nielsen has, with the help of another author, written a hilarious 99.9% true auto-biography of his (highly) eventful life.

Whilst reading it, I realized how influenced Leslie Nielsen became during his life by comedy's. It's very clear, as virtually all of the gags are in there. The writing style is: Reality/Leslie's spin/Bizarre thoughts/Gag. It's a big mix.

This could easily have been an audio book, because the words I read were being spoken in my mind by Frank Drebin. And thank you for that.

Buy the book, it'll cheer you up.

I've been a big fan of humor books for years but nothing prepared me for this! I picked it up at a used bookstore in Palo Alto and couldn't put it down. (I had to buy it because I was laughing so loud they asked me to leave the store.) Written in the style of countless celebrity "I love myself because I'm soooo wonderful" self indulgence ego fests, this book had me in hysterics so many times I had tears running down my face and cramps in my side. I found myself wondering just how much of the book is true and how much came out of the truly bizarre mind of Nielsen and his co-author David Fisher. (Was he really married to Michelle Pfeiffer? Was he the bachlor in the movie, Tammy and the Bachelor?) Nielsen should stop making those silly movies and devote himself to full time writting. Or better yet, he should turn this book into a film!

This Book Will Make You Laugh Like A Hyena 18 Jun 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Don't read this book in a public place, because your laughter will be uncontrollable and everyone will stare. It is so corny and so ridiculous it really does resemble a hollywood autobio.
By far the funniest book I've ever read 16 Feb 1997
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
The Naked Truth is more fiction than reality; nearly all of the details are admittedly false. While it does leave the reader longing to know the actual details of Nielsen's life, the non-stop hilarity quickly takes the focus off the obvious lies. I've read this probably about 5 times, and can keep picking it up every day and read a couple of pages and still laugh at the jokes. It is not only the intense comedic style that is amusing; rather, the fact that Nielsen weaves unthinkable tales of celebrity relationships (including his work with Fellini and Hitchcock, his gay relationship in Lawrence of Arabia, and his affairs with Brigette Bardot and Sharon Stone). If you thought Nielsen projected a straight-faced comedy style on the screen, his book will make you rethink the extreme ranges of his talent. Even though I'm a devoted Nielsen fan in the movies, with a book like this, I hope he'll start writing more instead of acting

This is two books in one- a parody and honest retelling of one's life couched in blatant lies.

Sewn into this fabric of fantasy is about 25% truth-telling. The lies ares so obvious that it is not difficult to detect. Yet, within the blatant hyperbole there is much to learn about the underpinnings of an actor's mind and motivation.

I guess hindsight gives everyone the right to distort the facts. Who cares- as long as it makes for a good story, and this book does.
