As a kid, I always thought of Lenny and Squiggy as the two dolts that live upstairs from Laverne & Shirley. I've been watching the DVD collections of the show with my kids and I've noticed something. Usually, I grade papers when I watch TV (one of the perks, lots of papers!) and I find myself listening to Laverne & Shirley, but I stop and WATCH Lenny and Squiggy. Squiggy, in particular, is in constant motion and always doing something weird/quirky/downright odd and inappropriate!
Both parts of the book are interesting and a pleasure to read. I enjoyed myself thoroughly and blasted through the book in no time. Landers stories about his early career, how he hid his MS and how he deals with it now are told with all of the grace of a natural born storyteller.
If you are a fan of David Lander I also recommend the following:
Laverne & Shirley - The Complete First Season and Oswald - On-the-Go Oswald / Oswald - Welcome to Big City!. Lander voices Henry, the persnickety penguin who can't do anything particularly athletic with the slogan "sl-o-o-w and steady." (sound familiar?)
I rate this book 5 stars out of 5.
