As JERRY STILLER wrote to Barry: "You're an express train that hasn't reached its destination...You should be more recognized."

Barry says: "What I've written involves a lifetime of being welcomed into literally dozens of circles of the world's most powerful individuals, globally, with vivid memories of how they were as 'people' Rather than 'name-dropping,' the memories I'm sharing are related in awe and gratitude of my privilege to have had their private selves be shared with mine, and vice-versa, personally and professionally."

These are just some of the many celebrated endorsements for this no-nonsense book:

Former U.S. Vice President, WALTER F. MONDALE, wrote, "Barry ZeVan, the Weatherman, is the person we watched as a television personality with personality. His autobiography tells us there was far more to his life in addition to television weather forecasts and broadcasting. His life story is a compelling read with constant surprises on almost every page. I heartily recommend it to anyone who thinks they know about survival."

"How can Barry ZeVan know so many famous people? Beats me, but he does and the stories he tells about them make fascinating reading." SAM DONALDSON, former ABC-TV White House Correspondent, News Anchor, Co-Host of THIS WEEK, 20/20 and PRIME TIME LIVE.

"Barry ZeVan's memoir is a must-read chronicle of the highest highs and the lowest lows the veteran television personality and producer has experienced, often in the company of the world's most celebrated personalities.  It's a tale of bright success fraught with darkness, but always filled with hope. Want know the price and the joys of celebrity?  Read this book." RUDY MAXA, Host, SMART TRAVELS WITH RUDY MAXA, PBS-TV and APT

The universal consensus is that this book will be of motivational value to those in any walk of life to never give up, but to also realize even the "giants" of this world are also, at the end of the day, simply human beings who "come down to Earth" when occasions arise and dictate. The experiences Barry had (and sometimes still has) with them will make you smile and cry, sometimes at the same time.

32 page photographic section, and full index of names, etc.
