Dick Van Dyke’s autobiography My Lucky Life In and Out of Show Business provides a delightful retrospective of the charmed life of a brilliant talent. Van Dyke takes us through his struggling years, through early breaks, rise to the top, and his enduring successes throughout his life. During his story we meet a lot of other brilliant talents, as he worked with many of the greatest actors and comedians in the industry.

Van Dyke had many film and TV successes: Mary Poppins, Bye Bye Birdie, TV variety shows, a hugely successful primetime show “Diagnosis Murder,” among others. The centerpiece of his career was, of course, the Dick Van Dyke show in the early 1960s. This is also where Mary Tyler Moore got her start in show business. The most colorful character on that show might’ve been Morey Amsterdam. He was an all-around entertainer who came up through vaudeville and reportedly memorized at least 100,000 jokes for any occasion. Anecdotes of Morey provide an extra dose of fun in the life story.

Dick Van Dyke appreciated earlier actors and comedians from whom he had learned. He especially admired the ones who worked the hardest and made it look the easiest. For example, he said of Stan Laurel (of the Laurel and Hardy comedy duo), about the artistic effort in his work: “Stan took care to hide it, to conceal the hours of hard creative work that went into his movies. He didn’t want you to see that—he just wanted you to laugh, and you did!” The same can truly be said of Dick Van Dyke.

He had his share of heartbreaks, but the overall experience reading the book is positive, full of bright optimism and joy in life ( )

Though I knew of some of his work, I really didn't know that much about Dick Van Dyke's life, so this was an enjoyable memoir about Van Dkye's life in show business. Everything is super G-rated, even discussions of alcoholism and his affair/divorce. There's also a lot of name-dropping when discussing the different shows on which he worked and the different celebrities he met, so the more familiar you are with Hollywood history, I think the more likely you'd be to get a lot out of this.

The writing style of this memoir was simple and unpolished, but once I got used to it, it seemed like listening to a grandfather or favorite uncle reminisce about the old days. There was not a lot of deep reflection, but the stories were interesting. I really appreciated his conscious decision to make movies his kids could see, rather than whatever made the most money. This book was a quick, light read that was enjoyable, but made little impact. ( )

A gentle, interesting memoir about a nice man. ( )

Dick Van Dyke is one of my favorite actors, but the book was sort of "meh". He was a trailblazer in show business, in radio, TV, and movies, but this book just wasn't hitting it. In an early part of the book, he describe a time he was performing for the Hollywood elite (which included Lucille Ball) and no one was laughing, and there was definitely no applause. That's about how I felt with the book. There were some interesting stories, and some chuckle-inducing ones, too, but overall, it was just very flat. ( )
