When in the mid-1950s Andy Williams reached a low point in his career, singing in dives to ever-smaller audiences, the young man from Wall Lake, Iowa, had no inkling of the success he would one day achieve.

Before being declared a national treasure by President Ronald Reagan, Williams would chart eighteen gold and three platinum albums, headline at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas for more than twenty years, and host an enormously popular weekly television variety show whose Christmas specials still occupy a tender spot in every baby boomer’s heart.

Williams knew everybody who was anybody during his seven remarkable decades in show business (including Judy Garland, John Huston, Jack Lemmon, John Lennon, Elton John, Frank Sinatra, Elvis, and Barbra Streisand, among others) and was a close friend of Bobby Kennedy for many years. He shares memories of them all in Moon River and Me.

    " I have always loved Any Williams! Many of the events in his life, I remember so well as they happened. It was interesting to know the inside stories of those events along with so many I didn't know anything about. Good easy read and an interesting peek inside the life of one who has sacrificed much for the musical success and money. It's good to know that he is finally happy and enjoying life. I've seen him perform twice when he was touring and I'd love to go see him one more time before he hangs up his hat. His theater in Branson sounds lovely! "

    " An okay biography. Don't waste your time unless you are waiting for an appointment and want to read a gossipy, lightweight biography. "
