About the Author
Ed Begley, Jr. is an American actor and environmental activist. He has appeared in hundreds of films, television shows, and stage performances. He played Dr. Victor Ehrlich on the television series St. Elsewhere from 1982 to 1988. The role earned him six consecutive Primetime Emmy Award nominations and a Golden Globe Award nomination. Since 1970, Begley has been an environmentalist, well known for his travels in an electric car, reducing trash and recycling, and becoming a vegan. He currently lives in Los Angeles with his wife Rachelle Carson.

"Begley's self-deprecating charm and good humor are evident throughout.... The path is decidedly once a Hollywood tell-all, a cautionary tale, and a work of earnest advocacy. There's more to this celebrity's life than mere show-business success."--Kirkus Reviews
"[A] rollicking memoir.... Begley's tone is smart, self-deprecating, and mordantly witty.... Begley's inside perspective on Tinseltown is humorous and revealing. The result is a captivating Hollywood picaresque."--Publishers Weekly
"This book will help a lot of people... it's funny too."--CBS Mornings
"Heartfelt.... His book is filled with a jumble of name-dropping admiration, love, and an entertaining account of the author's journey through addiction, personal growth, and redemption.... A memoir that's both touching and funny. Readers will see how Begley finds joy in life in spite of his battles."--Library Journal
