Interesting to read (but not well written).,
This review is from: Cagney & Lacey ... and Me: An Inside Hollywood Story or How I Learned to Stopworrying and Love the Blonde (Paperback)
Really enjoyed reading about the genesis of the show, and all the machinations that Barney Rosenzweig had to go through to get the show on air and the constant battles he had to keep it on air. It was quite revealing about the off-air characters of Daly & Gless.
However... it's an autobiography and is therefore quite one-sided. Although the author readily admits his faults, the overall tone is constantly that the author is the injured party and everyone else is 'the enemy', which gets a bit tiresome after a while.
Its also not a 'great read' generally. He uses a lot of insider terms that mean little to a layman (and even less to a British layman), so some of the arguments with studios / networks etc. are a little difficult to understand.
Still, for fans of the show only, I'd definitely recommend it.
