I grew up watching "Happy Days". I still remember rushing home from Girl Scouts, so that I wouldn't miss the first episode. Truth be told, I'm not a major fan of memoirs. So, I wasn't sure what to expect with Henry Winkler's memoir, "Being Henry: The Fonz...and Beyond". I was more than pleasantly surprised. I assume, as do other fans, that the characters portrayed by actors are how the actors are in "real life". "Being Henry", made me realize once again, that this is far from the truth. That truly wonderful actors can portray a wide variety of characters and make them appear believable. In reading the first twenty-three pages of his memoir, I'm in awe of the struggles faced by Mr. Winkler in his earlier years. It appears that the mistreatment by his family, some teachers, and so-called mentors has made Mr. Winkler a stronger, kinder person in the long run. I'm looking forward to reading the remainder of this well written memoir.
