About the Author

Tom Selleck is an award-winning actor and producer best known for his iconic role as Thomas Magnum in the original Magnum P.I. television series. Among the many unforgettable roles he has played are PI Lance White on the Rockford Files, Peter Mitchell in Three Men and A Baby, Matthew Quigley in Quigley Down Under, and Peter Malloy in In & Out. He was beloved as Dr. Richard Burke, Monica's older boyfriend on Friends, and is currently starring as NYPD Commissioner Frank Reagan on the hit crime drama Blue Bloods, now in its fourteenth season.

Ellis Henican is the New York Times bestselling author Home Team and Damn Few. An award-winning columnist for at Newsday and amNewYork, he hosts a nationally syndicated show on Talk Radio Network and often appears as a political analyst on The O'Reilly Factor and Fox News Watch. He is also an accomplished voice-over artist, best known for voicing the character Stormy in Cartoon Network's Sealab 2021. He lives in New York City.


"Even if readers have never seen a single episode of the show that made his career, Selleck's style entertains, edifies, and effectively bridges the bookends of his career. Selleck has a knack for maintaining interest in the nuts and bolts of writing and producing Magnum, his own thoughts and actions in the evolution of the character and the show itself, and the difficult decisions he made along the way. Those in search of salacious confessions or anecdotes should look elsewhere--text is like the man himself: witty, charming, and honest... A celebrity memoir worth reading." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Selleck's earnestness and self-deprecating folksy style will satisfy celebrity watchers, especially Magnum, P.I. and Blue Bloods fans." -- Library Journal

"A candid memoir. Fans of the iconic actor, will revel in his warmth, integrity, humor, and charm. Selleck is a TV star who keeps on shining, and his countless fans will be thrilled to be able to spend more time with him." -- Booklist

"Selleck delivers a breezy autobiography that covers his path from college basketball player to Hollywood heartthrob, describes his guest roles on shows including The Rockford Files and The Sacketts; his breakthrough on Magnum, PI; and his run-ins with showbiz royalty including Mae West and Frank Sinatra. [G]litzy recollections from a Hollywood stalwart...for the actor's fans, it's an ideal beach read." -- Publishers Weekly
