The New York Times bestselling memoir by one of the greatest entertainers of his generation, as beloved for The Dick Van Dyke Show as for his roles in movies such as Mary Poppins.
Dick Van Dyke, indisputably one of the greats of the Golden Age of television, is admired and beloved by audiences the world over for his beaming smile, his physical dexterity, his perfect comic timing, his ridiculous stunts, and his unforgettable movie roles. His trailblazing television program, The Dick Van Dyke Show (produced by Carl Reiner, who has written the foreword for the book), was one of the most popular sitcoms of the 1960s, and introduced another major television star, Mary Tyler Moore. But he was also an enormously engaging movie star whose films, including Mary Poppins and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, are as beloved today as they were when they first appeared, and have attracted an entirely new generation of fans. Who doesn't know the word supercalifragilisticexpialidocious?
     This is a lively, heartwarming memoir of an actor who still thinks of himself as a simple "song and dance man," but who is, in every sense of the word, a world-class entertainer.
