Norman Lear: Even this I get to Experience | Order Now!

Norman Lear

Quote Rotator
"Even This I Get To Experience is not just the brilliant, moving story of a man who has lived an amazing number of lives--from making it onto Richard Nixon's enemies list to changing the face of television--but also a life-manual on how to live a life of depth, purpose and meaning."
Arianna Huffington
"That Norman Lear can find humor in life¹s darkest moments is no surprise--it¹s the reason he¹s been so successful throughout his more than nine decades on earth, and why Americans have relied on his wit and wisdom for more than six. It¹s also why Even This I Get to Experience is such a great read."
President William J. Clinton
"Fantastic stories from one of the wisest, most subversive, and most beautiful human beings the comedy world has ever known. Like the man himself, this book is charming, awe-inspiring, and hilarious."
Trey Parker
"Many have known the Man behind the stories. Now all of us can know the stories behind the Man. Archie, Edith, Gloria and Meathead couldn't have told them better!"
Bill Moyers
"Norman Lear is a hero and a friend... he experienced so much in his lifeŠ sometimes I just want to sit down and ask him questions about life and his perspectiveŠ to do it right it would take years of interviewsŠ but now that he wrote this book I can experience his journey and wisdom over and over again."
"Norman Lear could never write a more dramatic, touching, or funnier tale of his life than he¹s done here in Even This I Get to Experience."
Carl Reiner

book reviews

A TV titan on his memorable life and storied career. Lear, best known as the creative mind behind such classic comedies as All in the Family, Maude, The Jeffersons and Good Times, recounts his extraordinarily eventful life with his signature wit and irreverence. The result is not just a vividly observed and evocative portrait of a long life, but also a fascinating backstage look at the evolution of the American entertainment industry.
— Kirkus
