Product Description

Review

Essential for all popular collections. (Library Journal)

Others have come and gone, but the breezy Philbin is still here. What you see on TV is what you get in this book. Fans will love it. (Kirkus Reviews)

From the Back Cover

Sure, he’s an excitable guy.
Sure, he loves to complain.
But Regis Philbin loves life . . . and with the wildly unpredictable one he’s led so far, who wouldn’t? After five decades in show business—and nearly 17,000 unforgettable hours on television—he has a lifetime’s worth of stories to share.

In this entertaining memoir, the irrepressible Reege—consummate talk-show host, man-about-town, loving husband, father, and yes, obsessive sports fan—looks back at his years in show business. How I Got This Way is filled with stories of lessons learned—and elbows rubbed—with extraordinary, and often unsuspecting, teachers: David Letterman; Donald Trump; George Clooney; Howard Stern; Jack Nicholson; legendary Notre Dame coaches Frank Leahy, Ara Parseghian, and Lou Holtz; and, of course, longtime cohosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Kelly “Pippa” Ripa; as well as his own lovely wife, Joy—to name just a few.

Whether he’s revealing what really drove him “bonkers” on the set of Seinfeld, how he survived the first known bomb scare on live TV, what Jack Nicholson said about his beautiful leading ladies during their guys’ night out together, or poignant memories of his last moments with his idol and dear friend, Jack Paar, Regis packs every page with his signature heart, wit, dynamic energy, and gratitude for everything life has brought him.

Not at all what I expected or wanted. In this, everything is wonderful. All wonderful, all the time. If that were the way your life looked to you, then one might suspect some pathology or other.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It's a quick read with large print but at the same time very entertaining. The pictures were very enjoyable with lots of stars.

Regis is Regis. He writes the way he speaks. I could hear his voice when I was reading it. Really enjoyed the book.
