Pressestimmen

"Bob's writing is just like his hosting--smooth and professional. I'm sure his many fans will be thoroughly entertained and delighted by these recollections of his life and his long and very successful career. I can only imagine what more he might have accomplished if only he could sing."―Alex Trebek, host, 'Jeopardy!'

"The readers of this book will be happy to find, as I was, that Bob Barker did more than host The Price Is Right for thirty-five years. A lot more, as it turns out. What a career! God bless you, Bob Barker. And I'll try not to wreck the car."―Drew Carey, host of 'The Price Is Right'

"From hanging pianos to flying elephants, Bob Barker's love of people and animals and his remarkable ability to play the game furnishes a book full of prizes for the reader. Priceless Memories provides a fascinating insight into his career during the heydey of television and his tenacious determination to alleviate the suffering of animals. The book is a conversation with Bob Barker, full of humorous anecdotes about himself and the millions of contestants, friends, fans, family, celebrities and animals who have made his life a compelling story."―Pat Derby, founder of the Performing Animal Welfare Society (PAWS)

Synopsis

In front of the camera Bob Barker has been invited into the homes of America as host of The Price Is Right, Truth or Consequences, Miss USA, Miss Universe, The Rose Parade and many other series and specials. Now he shares stories of favorite contestants, episodes, celebrity encounters and behind-the-scenes happenings. He also opens up about his personal life - from being raised on a reservation by a single mother through the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl, to training as a pilot in the Navy during World War II, through his romance with the love of his life, high school sweetheart, Dorothy Jo and his success at retirement. His support of animal rights has always been a central part of his life and Bob delves into stories of how he has taken on Hollywood and the government in his crusade, inc. his anti-fur stand-off with beauty pageants, his involvement in uncovering animal abuse in movies and tv and the legislation he helped to pass. He also shares personal stories of rescuing animals, from dogs to elephants. For the ans who have welcomed him into their homes over the last 50 yrs, this book will be like catching up with a dear old friend. --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful Memoir 26. November 2013
Von T. Cannon - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I loved Bob Barker on The Price is Right and I even remember a little bit of his first show, Truth or Consequences. I seem to be reading a lot of Biographies lately although that is not on purpose. This one had a nice homey feel to it. I actually just felt like Bob Barker was telling me stories about his life.

While most biographies seem to start at the beginning and go chronologically this one starts with how he got the opportunity to host his first television show Truth or Consequences. Then it moves on to reviving The Price is Right. I had enough problems with someone hosting The Price is Right after Bob Barker. I didn't know that someone else had done the show before him and that he was actually hired to bring it back to television after it had been off the air for a while. To me, and I think many others, Bob Barker is The Price is Right.

Afterward, he goes back and tells about growing up, being in the Navy, meeting and marrying his wife, and all of the things that made up his life. It was a great book and it is clear that he was one of the lucky ones that found a job he loved doing and that he got to do it as long as he wanted to.

My only small complaint is that the last few chapters that describe his efforts for Animal Rights where a little off-putting. Not because he was preachy about it (he was not) and not because I do not share his feelings. (I think animals should be treated respectfully but I have no problems eating meat or wearing leather.) My concern is that when he described things like fur wearers being spit on, or having red paint thrown on them I could not tell if he condoned these actions or not. He didn't come out and say that he was glad and as far and I could tell he did not participate in these actions himself, but he did not condemn them either. It left me wondering. I was impressed by his love for animals and that he always seem to have several dogs and other animals that he took care of very well. I admired his decision to stop hosting the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants when they decided to continue awarding a fur coat to the winner after they told him they would stop. They decided that they wanted the advertising revenue from the furriers more than they wanted Bob Barker and he decided that the job was not worth representing something that he could not support.

Lastly, I just want to say that I was impressed with how he and his wife worked together until she died. I think he said that they were married 32 years when she passed away. Sadly, this kind of long term relationship is rare in Hollywood. I was also impressed that his mother lived with him in her later years until she died. His father passed away when he was about 6 years old and he and his mother were always "partners" as he put it in his book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen To all who Remember the "Good Old Days" 10. Mai 2009
Von AVL - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
If you are from 25 - 95 yrs old....you too "grew up" with Bob Barker and all of his shows. I remember watching TV with my mother when I was just 5 yrs old and she would tell me..."It's time to watch The Bob Barker Show". We had fun together. Then with all the years of "The Price is Right".... EVERYONE knew Bob and EVERYONE wanted to "Come on Down" to shake his hand. I was happy to go and just sit in the audience twice. Just sitting there and being able to know that "this is the man" that made my mom and I so happy back in the 'olden days' was a great time for me.

Now my mother is 95 and she misses not seeing him on TV anymore. When you are that old and living in a nursing home...you like things to stay the same but she is getting use to Drew but it's not the same.

My mother's eyesight is failing so I will read it out loud to her and we can share some old memories together and maybe discover some new things to talk about. I know it will be a book full of fun for both os us.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An exceptional book about an exceptional man 6. Juni 2009
Von Matthew Philbin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
When I learned that Bob Barker had written an autobiography I knew I had to get it. This book will not disappoint you at all. It has many anecdotes about his life and many other interesting things you never knew about Bob Barker. I would love to have the opportunity to meet Mr. Barker in person but this book it the next best thing. Just reading this book makes you feel like you are sitting, having a conversation with Bob about the happenings of his life, and then when you add in the audio book...he really is having a conversation with you... I would most definitely recommend this book to everyone and especially to fans of Bob Barker.
3.0 von 5 Sternen Buy "Priceless" Only at a Discount Price 29. November 2016

This has some fairly interesting stuff, but relies heavily on Bob's early, early days in broadcasting. If you are looking for a lot of information about Bob's time at "Price", you won't find that here. Another note: Digby Diehl is no Hemingway. If you are a fan of Barker, and can put up with a scribe who has the writing style of a high school senior, you will probably enjoy this book.
5.0 von 5 Sternen School woth Bob on the Rosebud Reservation 22. Dezember 2010
Von techguy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I enjoyed reading Bob Barkers book, Priceless Memories. I grew up on the Rosebud Indian Reservation. Bob's mother, Matilda Barker, was Superintendent of Schools when I was in the second grade. She flunked me when I was in the second grade. I have kept my second grade report card, which has her name on it, as a souvenir. I was a Swiss immigrant child and my command of the English language was marginal. We lived in a sod house 4 miles NE of Mission. I attended the same group of wooden school buildings that Bob attended. We were equipped with cast iron wood burning stoves and outhouse restrooms. The Barkers left the reservation before I started the third grade, so I convinced my third grade teacher to let me proceed in the third grade. The reservation school system was quite good. I eventually earned BS and MS degrees in Mechanical Engineering.
I agree with Bob, that growing up on the Rosebud Reservation was a great experience. I enjoyed many of the same experiences that he mentions in his book.
