    " I learned so much from this book that I did not know about B. Barker. I only knew him from TPIR for all of my life. He tells his story with wicked humor and candidly at that. He has led a very interesting life. "

    " An easy read and fairly interesting. Barker has had a very interesting life and I knew almost nothing about him other than being on the Price is Right. Parts are repetitive, but overall, it is an easy and interesting read if you grew up watching The Price is Right, as I did. "
