Review:

PRAISE FOR THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND ME"[Wallach is] an excellent tour guide through his life, from Red Hook to the Army to Broadway and the big and small screens. [He] is a born observer, and he has a simple, direct writing style that makes him seem like just one of the guys . . . He comes across as a man who's had a helluva lot of fun entertaining us."-VARIETY "The directness and unpretentiousness of [Wallach's] work is in the same spirit that animates his straightforward and charming memoir . . . [He] has you right where he wants you-in the palm of his hand, taking the same pleasure in this performance that you've taken in his others."-THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
