Here's Johnny is like sitting with Ed and Johnny over lunch:

The last time I saw Johnny, about a year before he died, we had chicken, a couple of glasses of red wine, and then we just sat there and reminisced, going back and forth the way we did on the show. We talked about our kids, and our careers and the state of America, just two lucky guys who loved each other and the good luck of our careers.

Ed McMahon is the only person who was with Johnny Carson, even before The Tonight Show , when they both first appeared on Who Do You Trust . Now, with Johnny's blessing before he died, McMahon can finally share all the stories that only he knows. From the sofa at Johnny's right, to backstage, to their personal relationship - McMahon will provide a real view of the man who was so careful to only show one side of himself to the public. Brilliant in front of the camera, but shy in person, Carson seldom gave interviews. Only McMahon can tell the stories and provide the insights into the personality that made Johnny Carson more of a friend we invited into our home than a television star.

This entertaining tribute will feature over 200 pictures, many never before published, from both McMahon's and Carson's private archives.

Ed McMahon rehashes skits with Johnny Carson on the Tonight Show. Nothing personal, no insight, nothing beyond what was seen on TV.

This is a puff-piece bio, however still fun to read. No big secrets revealed, just fun stories.

If you enjoyed the Tonight show, you'll enjoy Ed's memories of the show and working with Johnny Carson. If you are looking for insights about Johnny Carson, forget it. This is truly a puff-piece biography and you won't learn anything that you didn't already know about either Johnny Carson or Ed McMahon.
