I was amazed when I read this book some years ago. I read if after I went to see Lewis perform in Melbourne years ago. I think if I read the book first that I wouldn't have bothered going to see him. It was a good read, with astonishing insight into Lewis, who never authorized its release, and I can see why, as it was none to complimentary in the end, but still, it was a "true" account of Lewis's life and times. Worth reading for sure, but damaging to Lewis in my opinion. Like many who grew up with Lewis on TV, I loved the guy, but as I grew into an adult myself and learned of fatherhood, my thoughts of Lewis changed with the revelations in this book.
