Tom Bergeron, host of "Dancing with the Stars and "America′s Funniest Home Videos," has always been ambitious, driven, and charming, but as a young man, he had an enemy that posed a serious threat to what otherwise would have been guaranteed success-a bad temper. His family and friends didn′t keep their concerns to themselves, but Tom′s petulance remained a problem until his first date with a woman who threatened to end their relationship when, in a fit of anger, he put a dent in his car door. "If you want us to go any further, you′d better do something about that," Lois said, unabashed and unafraid. Tom, embarrassed, then and there committed himself to controlling that temper. (That woman later became his wife, by the way.)

This humorous memoir will be filled with anecdotes of how Tom, who never breaks character, stutters or so much as breaks a sweat (even when an Osmond faints at his feet on live TV), uses meditation and other regimented, relaxation techniques to stay focused, energetic, and happy on and off the camera.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Love it 7. April 2009
Von Alla S. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Tom Bergeron, currently best known for hosting shows like Dancing With The Stars and America's Funniest Videos, has written a laugh-out-loud memoir about his career in television, titled "I'm Hosting as Fast as I Can! Zen and the Art of Staying Sane in Hollywood." Bergeron's writing is both hilarious and self-deprecating--a much needed antidote to the current dark mood sweeping the nation in the wake of the economy. His first media exposure was a DJ position at a local radio station, while still in high school. Ironically enough, his boss at the time warned Bergeron that there was no career in radio. Fast forward several years and Tom was not only still hosting radio shows, but alternating between a string of TV jobs. Through his narrative, Bergeron takes us on a wonderful journey from a small radio station in Haverhill, Massachusetts to Hollywood, California. Ultimately, each job opportunity stems from his previous experience as Bergeron's star is on the rise. What I find most admirable about Tom's story is that he is not born with a so-called silver spoon, but truly achieves his modern success through old fashioned hard work--and manages to laugh at himself in the process. Various gigs at a Boston television station include hosting a kids show, a crazy talk show, and even reading lottery numbers which leads to hosting an improvisational breakfast show in New York whose most popular character is a sock puppet called Bob. This ironically becomes Bergeron's ticket into national television. Also mentioned is Bergeron's following brief stint in Good Morning America (a catty co-host included), the reason why he will never be a guest on Regis and Kelly, his time on Hollywood Squares, the surprising reason he was chosen as the host for America's Funniest Videos, and why Tom almost turned down the chance to host Dancing With the Stars. Besides his successful TV resume and various backstage gossip, Tom frankly reveals the struggles he has to endure along the way --health scares, bicoastal existence, the conflict between family and career, as well as many hilarious mishaps. In the face of constant change and personal turmoil, Bergeron shares his Zen philosophy of staying calm and looking at life from a glass-half-full perspective. Generously interspersed throughout Bergeron's narrative, are intriguing parables and comedic conversations with himself--which serve to underscore this optimistic way of interpreting life. As Tom puts it, Zen is essentially about acknowledging that all events in life are connected--a philosophy that can certainly be applied to events in Tom Bergeron's captivating life. Overall, Tom Bergeron's memoir is both highly entertaining and inspirational--a story that anyone can relate to, regardless of demographic, and one I would highly recommend at least for a good laugh.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good Book But... 31. Dezember 2009
Von Michael Gooch - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
As a Bergeron fan, my wife bought me this book for Christmas. It is a very humorous look at Tom's life and the Laws of Attraction. If ever there was a man that could point to this philosophy in his life, it is Tom.

Why am I a fan of this man? He is cool under pressure, glib at times and sarcastic when the moment is right. And all of this is pulled off in a very natural, unforced way. You certainly don't get the impression of scripted, over-practiced babble. According to the book, he loves live television and prefers the NOW aspect of performance. Live Television? That takes guts aplenty.

From the critical side, Tom states that he started off life with a bad temper. Maybe so, but the few instances he details in this tome sound pretty tame to me. If this is a bad temper, then me and everyone I know are more akin to Attila the Hun. That is to say, it is not too difficult to repair something that really isn't broken but only needs a light oiling. Maybe I missed the message or Tom left out some of the more brutal details.

More disappointing is the lack of detail behind "why" he got into Zen. I would like to know the beginnings of this journey and why this practice is superior to others. In the excellent book Sacred Hoops: Spiritual Lessons of a Hardwood Warrior, Phil Jackson delves into this area providing enough insight to satisfy. Tom does not.

Some reviews stated the book was ego-maniacal. I disagree.
Others stated that they wanted more "dirt" (for lack of a better word). I didn't expect any as Tom is still gainfully employed and I suspect would like to remain in this state.
Still other reviewers stated the book skipped around too much. Well...this is personal taste. I rather enjoyed the editing.

Overall, I really like the book and will recommend it to others.

I hope you find this opinion helpful.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Laugh Out Loud Funny and Insightful 20. April 2009
Von Bearsfan34 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I bought this as an audio download just so I could hear Tom's sense of humor and love it. His quick wit translates well, but his deep insight is truly surprising. I've enjoyed every minute of this book and will be truly sorry when it's over, I'm savoring every chapter. I enjoy watching his live performances and now know where his unique quirky senses come from. Great book, well worth it. Would make a great Mother's or Father's Day gift!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Why Hasn't He Won An Emmy? 30. März 2010
Von Beth C - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Written in the same style with which Mr. Bergeron speaks, I just love this book! His down to Earth tone and self deprecation brings the reader into his comical monologue so much so that you feel as if you are sitting having coffee with Tom and listening to his stories face to face. Saving the rest of it for a beach read this April.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Enlightening Memoir 23. September 2009
Von Sacramento Reader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I am an avid fan of Dancing With The Stars and have admired Tom Bergeron's cool demeanor, ad lib humor, and friendly banter with the contestants, dancers and judges whom he clearly cares about. I heard about this memoir and was excited to read it to understand how Tom became so talented. Is he just a natural and when did he discover his talent? Did he get a lucky break or great training? How did he come to be who he is on stage? The book did not disappoint! He answers all those questions and more. His sense of humor comes through loud and clear and the book is a fun read even if you aren't a regular viewer of his shows. He also has more solid advice about living than multiple self-help books rolled in one ... enlightening readers with real life examples about making career choices, taking risks, doing what you love, meditating, being present, balancing work/family, etc., etc. Mostly I was impressed by the years of hard work on radio and tv and the years he spent studying mime and improv. He may be a "natural," but he also worked hard, took chances, and learned along the way. This is a delightful and inspiring memoir and now I will enjoy watching one of my favorite TV shows even more, knowing the back story of his life.

P.S. It's also refreshing that he speaks well of his wife and children and unlike most celebrity books it is not filled with depressing stories about substance abuse and toxic relationships. Bravo, Tom! Hope to enjoy many more years of your sense of humor ...
