Of course, Baby Boomers like me associate Henry Winkler with his role as the Fonz on Happy Days but reading this memoir was so revealing in regards to his personal life as well as his many other professional roles and achievements. I really enjoyed the brief additions to his story written by his wife, Stacy. I don’t want to use any spoilers so will review in general terms. I was saddened by Henry’s descriptions of his childhood and his relationships with his parents. I think it is well known that he has dyslexia and his openness about his struggles with it are both heartbreaking and inspiring. I really enjoyed all his anecdotes about not only the cast of Happy Days, but also about other celebrities who he has worked with or just had encounters with over his professional career. Other than the story bouncing around a bit, I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book.
