"Jay Leno's Tonight show [is explored] in this book by insider Dave Berg, who spent 18 years as Jay's co-producer. There were always two shows: the one on stage and the one behind the curtain. This narrative weaves both together, featuring the show's most legendary moments, including Hugh Grant's game-changing mea culpa, Arnold Schwarzenegger's shocking political announcement, and the historic booking of Barack Obama as the first sitting president ever to do a late-night show"

A very enjoyable book for approximately the first 2/3; the final 1/3 feels like filler and I struggled to get through it. Much of what the author goes over here is included in Leno's own book, "Leading With My Chin" (a better overall read), but much is not. I enjoyed learning the peculiarities of different guests on the show and liked learning that JFK Jr. was the author's all-time favorite guest (and, perhaps, Leno's as well). \
