In this wonderfully engaging memoir, the charismatic entertainment legend recalls his life, from his humble beginnings as a a€ushy, no self-esteem, Jewish nebbisher kid with no ambitiona€ in Oceanside, Long Island, to his unexpected rise as one of the most influential and respected personalities in show business, revered for his kindness, charismaa€"and fondness for a good time. Gordon shares riotous anecdotes and outrageous accounts of his free-wheeling, globe-trotting experiences with some of the biggest celebrities of the past five decades, including his first meeting with Janice Joplin in 1968, when the raspy singer punched him in the face.
