Reader Review

700 Sundays by: Billy Crystal
The comedian relates his Sunday time spent mainly with his dad for the few short years before he passed from a heart attack. It's a non-fictional tribute not only to him but his whole entire family- their closeness- their few sad but mostly funny escapades. It has nothing to do with Billy's career perse. He had "funny" genes running throughout his talented family. It's what a family should do- love and support each other - take care of each other - Laughter is the best medicine. What you see is what you get with Billy!
