What brought me to the decision to read this memoir? Nostalgia for the "glory days" of classic television? Curiosity about one of the more unique and varied success stories in Hollywood? (Ron's transitions from "Opie to "Richie Cunningham" to Hollywood super-director.) Or just the insight that there was something of value in learning how it all came to pass? Answer: All of the above. Ron and Clint's alternating stories have much to offer in the way of American cultural treasure as well as providing a heartwarming look at their family's bedrock values. Open, honest, conversational and informative, The Boys is a true pleasure to page through. ~ Reviewed by Jon Fine
