Bob Newhart used to have his own show, these days he guest stars on The Big Bang Theory from time to time as a washed-up television scientist. He’s always been a comedian, except for when he was an accountant. He started out small–writing funny skits to perform on stage or radio and eventually started working in casinos and then he got his own show that ran for six seasons. He’s also been in a few movies.

Through all of this, Bob has found things in life to observe and make fun of.

What I liked

I vaguely remember The Bob Newhart show. I don’t recall disliking it, but I would have been pretty young. Bob is a funny person. He’s not a raunchy comedian; he observes life and pokes fun at it. Sometimes, the best thing you can do in a bad situation is make fun of it. I admire Bob in the things I see him in on television these days. I think he just seems like a nice person.

What I didn’t like

The humor in the book isn’t laugh out loud, which is a little unfortunate, but it’s still humorous.

Overall

I wonder if Bob practiced his one-sided telephone conversations a lot.
