5.0 out of 5 stars Wunnerful, Wunnerful! The man, his music, and this book! June 28 2000
By Betty J. Ross - Published on Amazon.com
Wunnerful, Wunnerful! The Autobiography of Lawrence Welk by Lawrence Welk with Bernice McGeehan
This excellent book made me a Lawrence Welk fan. Until I read his autobiography I considered Welk's music more suited to my mother's taste. I have changed my mind. I picked up my copy at a yard sale and bought it mainly because it had the signature of the author scrawled across the title page. I like biographies and autobiographies, and when I settled down to read this one, I was well rewarded for my treasure hunt. Threaded throughout this book are examples of integrity and thoughtfulness that show Lawrence Welk to be an outstanding showman, a hard worker, a devoted family man, a man of faith, and basically a decent human being. His humility in the face of success and his concern for his musical family made him someone to be admired. From the first $400 accordion that cost him four years work on his parents' farm to the fleet of Rolls Royces that graced his final years, it was a long, hard road. His thick accent became his trademark, along with his "Champagne Music" that entertained so many of his fans. But his fans were more than just fans, they were his friends. That is unusual in the world of entertainment, but then he was an unusual man, and this is an unusual book. I recommend it highly.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a find! Aug. 30 2010

For the Welk-fan, this book with Welk family photos is terrific. At very least, its a conversation piece for a younger generation. If you remember saturday night watching Lawrence when Dodge or Geritol was his sponser - this is for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars This Lawrence Welk biography is a winner. July 17 2012
By Janie A. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for a friend in his late 80's, who spends part of every weekend watching Lawrence Welk re-runs on TV. He's always wondering about Welk's early life. For his birthday, I gave him a DVD from the Welk show, along with this book. He says the book is the best gift he's received. The life story of Mr. Welk holds his interest and he quotes passages to me from the book. I always read customer reviews on Amazon before buying, and I did that before ordering this. Reviews were helpful. Since there are no new books about Mr. Welk,I ordered this one from a used book dealer and it arrived in good condition. If you're looking for a gift for a Lawrence Welk fan, this autobiography is likely to please.

I enjoyed the book because our parents use to watch him and now we watch him too. It was good history to remember.
