Henry Winkler, launched into prominence by his role as 'The Fonz' in the beloved TV series Happy Days, has transcended the role that made him who he is. Brilliant, funny and widely regarded as the nicest man in Hollywood (though he would be the first to tell you that it's simply not the case, he's just really grateful to be there), Henry shares, in the achingly vulnerable memoir, the disheartening truth of his childhood, the difficulties of a life with severe dyslexia, the pressures of a role that takes on a life of its own, and the path forward once your wildest dream seems behind you. Today, Henry has endeared himself to a new generation with roles in Arrested Development, Parks and Recreation and Barry, where he's revealed himself as an actor with immense depth and pathos, a departure from the period in his life when he was so distinctly typecast as The Fonz he could hardly find work. Filled with profound heart, charm and self-deprecating humour, this memoir is about so much more than a life in Hollywood and the curse of stardom. It is a meaningful testament to the power of sharing truth and kindness, and of finding fulfilment within yourself.
