Things I Overheard While Talking to Myself
This is a book by Alan Alda featuring many speeches he has given at different ceremonies, mostly graduations. It is a light read and funny without being silly. If you're wondering why the Columbia University Medical School would want Alan Alda to speak at their graduation, so did he! That's part of the fun of this book. He is able to make fun of himself without being sarcastic. I really appreciate this man's humor. This book may seem a little simple for some, as there isn't a huge amount of subject matter, but I really enjoyed it. There is some good autobiographical information in there as well. If you're a fan of Alan Alda's work, whether on Broadway, MASH, or Scientific American Frontiers, you will enjoy this book. Great for an airplane.
