Merv Griffin began his career as a big band singer, moved onto a career as a romantic movie hero and eventually rewrote the rules of the entertainment industry. He interviewed everyone, from Martin Luther King Jr to Joan Crawford and brought drag queens, revolutionaries and gay activists into the mainstream. He also created the hit gameshows Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune.

The only biography I've ever read where the research is listed with conversations as told by a third party. This book is not to be believed on any level. There is no mention of his son or any other party that is still alive and can sue. This is what fiction is served for. Avoid at all costs.

An interesting read, but sometimes the author shares a little too much information.
