From a happy Massachusetts childhood to working the college campus comedy circuit, playing more than 300 gigs a year and finally to the Tonight Show on US television, this is Jay Leno's fascinating autobiography.

A bit surprising is that this is like a biography, but it's not in chronological order.
Oh well, it's really funny anyway. Both the way he tells his own story, and of course when he relates things he said on camera or on stage.

I took the book to read whenever I had to take the kids to the doctor because the wait was always
so long. Jay's book made me laugh out loud so much that the doctor peeked into the exam room and
asked what I was laughing about so much. I showed him all the Post-it-Notes pages that made me laugh.
The doctor asked me if the book was really that funny, and I said "YES, go buy Jay's book and read it to laugh."
Couple years ago, I gave the book to a friend in need to laugh, and I'm sorry I gave it away.
Jay's dad was a character and his mom was such a sweet woman like Edith on Archie Bunker tv series.
A touching part that made me tear up was when Jay was in high school sitting in class and he could
see his parents in the distance at his junkie old pick-up that did not have windows, they were covering
his pick-up with plastic because it was raining. Wow, they loved their son. Even though his dad was
a tough guy, he showed he cared about Jay. Man, that was such a loving thing to do. My dad would not
have done that. This time, me not giving Jay's book away. In times when I need to laugh, I go to his
book. I love all the funny events about his parents. I like Jay Leno.
This book is funny, not uproariously funny because it was not intended to be so. I sympathize with Jay for the mishaps he endured, some of which he should have foreseen.
Give the man a break.
