    Violet Stiel loves her Daddy. She knows many of us love him too. And now that he has died, she'd like two things: 1. To keep him as alive as she can through memories and affectionate tribute 2. For you to know the man she knew, and love him as she did. This book is not a biography...

    I will say it is in fact, impossible to put down. Finished it in a single day. Harold Ramis was a big part of my childhood, mainly through GHostbusters 1 and 2 playing repeatedly and overtime Stripes, Caddyshack, Vacation and Animal house. He very well a major part of what my comedy th...

    I loved this book. And Harold Ramis really came off as a good, good guy. It is a warts and all memoir but this guy doesn't have many warts. And he seems to be really grounded about the warts he has. That being said and the author would probably be horrified that I came away with thi...

    I absolutely loved this book. Egon was my favorite Ghostbuster. It was great to read about some of his work outside of acting. I read this on the heels of Caddyshack. It was also great to see the relationships of his co-workers through his daughter. They truly had an inspirational bond...

    This book thoroughly explores Violet Ramis Stiel's relationship with her father, legendary comedy actor, writer and director Harold Ramis. The focus remains squarely on that relationship, and we learn as much about the author as we do about her famous father. While film fans may be loo...

    I expected a little less Violet and a little more Harold. In retrospect though it is a about life with Dad, so I guess that's my bad. ...
