Don Rickles' autobiography, which he interestingly entitled Rickles' Book , is a light read. Each chapter is 2-3 pages in length, and generally a lightweight story. Rickles has a few zingers in the book, but for the most part, they are aimed at himself. He has a good amount of Sinatra stories and tells of his firendship with Johnny Carson, who threw away his notes when Rickles was on "The Tonight Show". He tells of how his parents supported him in his career choice, and the legendary comic such as Jack Benny and George Burns who he got to know.
Sadly, when writing about Run Silent, Run Deep he leaves out a legendary practical joke he and Jack Warden played on Gable. Rickles also writes about Kelly's Heroes, which was a tough shoot, but he wouldn't have missed it for anything.
It's a fun read, and one that you get through in a few hours. The anecdotes are ones that make you wish you'd been there.
