Okay fluffy memoir including her story on helping her dad get a job by filming audition tape or what it like to grow up in Hollywood.
Interviews with fellow more recent celebrities? Filler & meh.

This is a great book for anyone who remembers the late 60's and the Thomas family or particularly those who enjoy humor. Marlo provides many funny family antidotes and i enjoyed her jokes immensely. I skipped over most of the interview sections with other comedians, so have few comments there.
