Here's Johnny is like sitting with Ed and Johnny over lunch:

The last time I saw Johnny, about a year before he died, we had chicken, a couple of glasses of red wine, and then we just sat there and reminisced, going back and forth the way we did on the show. We talked about our kids, and our careers and the state of America, just two lucky guys who loved each other and the good luck of our careers.

Ed McMahon is the only person who was with Johnny Carson, even before The Tonight Show, when they both first appeared on Who Do You Trust. Now, with Johnny's blessing before he died, McMahon can finally share all the stories that only he knows. From the sofa at Johnny's right, to backstage, to their personal relationship, McMahon will provide a real view of the man who was so careful to only show one side of himself to the public. Brilliant in front of the camera, but shy in person, Carson seldom gave interviews. Only McMahon can tell the stories and provide the insights into the personality that made Johnny Carson more of a friend we invited into our home than a television star.

    " Loved Johnny Carson. This was Johnny's story threw Ed's eyes and words. It was told of times on and off stage with him threw someone who knew him best. All positive and that alone is a very rare thing. Just the truth Ed said he wrote. "

    " Was entertaining and I enjoyed the memories of some of his shows. Hard to believe that he was as perfect a star as Ed remembers. Would have liked to have read more about the shows and maybe a little truer side of Johnny. All in all was enjoyable. "

    " loved the first 2/3 of the book. Funny, warm, familiar, like a dear old friend you haven't seen in awhile. Then it became repetitous and a bit annoying. So give it 4 stars if you quit reading when you find it becoming tiresome. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 David | 2/8/2011

    " If the Pope reads this book, we may have another Saint John. A little overblown (but then it is Ed McMahon). Carson fans will probably enjoy the retelling of the gags and memorable moments. "
