I know, I know. I am somewhat of a loser. I know my friend Traci will just roll her eyes when she sees that I read this. Read, maybe more like skimmed. I got sucked in Live with Regis and Kelly at the gym this year and his book peaked my curiosity. It was interesting. Every chapter is a different person who has influenced his life. I completely skipped anyone sports related. It was interesting to find out how he made it on television. Quite an interesting story in itself. I wish he would have ta [...]

If you like Regis Philbin, you may like his memoir. not exactly a memoir of his whole life but snippets of his life. Regis writes about what he has learned from the people he has met and known throughout his life. each chapter is about one of those persons. it could be anywhere from actor,actresses, people he has worked with such as Joey Bishop, Kathie lee , Kelly, to friends, wife Joy. His college Notre Dame. two years in the militaryc. Regis is quite generous and complimentary to all those per [...]

I read this book because I was looking for a something to read and I figured what the heck, lets see how Regis got this way. I didn't know what to expect but I was really pleased at that I read. I love how he told little stories or events that happened with his friends and family. I really liked at the end of each tale he tells us what he took away from the experience or the person. Kind of makes me want to write down what people in and around my life have taught me or write down experiences I h [...]

Well, lets start by saying that I really have loved Regis over the years and think he is a wonderful story teller. This book is a book filled with stories of people who have made Regis the way is is. The problem is that I have heard many of these stories over the years on his show or have seen the interviews he writes about (with David Letterman) for instance during their original airing. Also, Reeg is the consummate name dropper and this book is full of that. That said its nice to here from him [...]

Loved it! Regis is inspirational, but still humble enough to know where his roots are and be thankful to those who have inspired him to be where he is today. You can feel the gratitude, with a touch of humor mixed in. He loves his life and has worked hard to get there. Definitely a good read!

Okay, not my usual read, but I borrowed a friend's Kindle Paperwhite to try it out and it was on there, so I read it. I am happy to report that I enjoyed the Kindle experience much more than I thought I would! As far as the book, I'm not a Regis mega-fan, but I'm not a hater either. His voice definitely shined through; you could tell it was him, and this is coming from someone who has only seen him here and there randomly. It isn't your typical biography/memoir. Each chapter is dedicated to a pe [...]

Talk show host and tv personality Regis Philbin credits much of his career success to his storytelling ability which he puts to good use in this memoir. Instead of a chronological memoir, Philbin structures his book around stories of people who influenced his life and career. Each chapter ends with what he learned from each individual, including Lou Holtz, Kathy Lee Gifford, George Clooney, Kelly Ripa, Donald Trump and more. Some would say Regis does a lot of name dropping, but that was his job [...]

Great stories about Regis' and influential people he came into contact with. After each chapter, he offers "What I learned" in summary. Fun, laughs and inspiration.

I have been a fan of Regis for a long time. When I was a little kid, my mother would watch his show, which, in New York, was called The Morning Show at first. When there was a day off from school, or a snow day, it would be on. I remember when it became syndicated and the name changed to Live with Regis and Kathie Lee. The best part about that show, of course, was the first twenty minutes - the banter Regis and his co-host would have back and forth about what was going on in NY at the time in ne [...]

Fans of Regis Philbin will love this entertaining memoir. It is comprised of 30 chapters, each about someone who made a difference in his life. There are many witty stories and memories, all told in Regis’ inimitable style.While I’ve only been a casual fan of Regis, I enjoyed these stories immensely. The only chapters I didn’t relate to were the ones about Notre Dame. I’m just old enough to remember most of the people but a few from the beginning of his career such as Jack Paar, Cary Gra [...]

The one and only Regis Philbin does a nice job of pointing out all the people who've shaped him in "How I got this way". I'll be honest though - I only read the chapters of the people I was interested in. This means my review is not comphrensive because I didn't actually read the whole book. Did it deter from my reading? Definitely not. This isn't a biography in the traditional sense, although sometimes Regis's experiences with each of these individuals overlap. I didn't feel like I really misse [...]

There are two takeaways you should get from reading this autobiographical look at the TV talk show host’s life in show business: One, Regis Philbin’s nearly groupie-like worship of some of America’s iconic stars. At the top of that list Philbin would probably put Bing Crosby, Cary Grant and Jack Paar. Second, Regis’ love affair with just one word: “anyway.” Philbin uses that same word to begin paragraphs in all but thirteen of these thirty chapters. In the remaining seventeen chapter [...]

I miss Regis. There I said it. As the famed talk show host states at one point in his book, "How I Got This Way," I came late to the Regis Philbin party, but in the 10 years I followed his "Live" show, I admit I loved the heck out of him.This book chronicles a host of people, mostly big names you would instantly recognize, or at least think you have heard of, who have touched Regis and in some way helped shape him into the "out of control" success he is. Everyone from Bing Crosby to Don Rickles [...]

How I Got This Way, by Regis Philbin, narrated by Regis Philbin, Produced by Harper Audio,Downloaded from audible.This is a very entertaining memoir of Regis Philbin’s career in television from the 1950’s to the present. He just “moved on” not “retired” from his talk show, “Regis and Kelly.” Anyone who watched that morning show will enjoy this book narrated by Regis himself. It’s like listening to him give his monologue every morning of the events of his day. He talks about the [...]

As a casual fan of Regis Philbin, I read his other book and have followed his career from the time hes been on Live! first with Kathie Lee Gifford then with Kelly Ripa (although I'll admit I haven't watched as much of him in recent years) along with his stint on Who Wants to be a Millionaire. So when I picked up this book, I didn't expect to learn too much new about himWas I wrongis is a book where he talks of the special people that have made an impact on him over the years.

This is a series of short chapters, each on a different person who was instrumental or inspirational in Regis Philbin's career. They are written as if he is telling them to his audience. They have that quality. The chapters include Bing Crosby, Dean Martin, Donald Trump, Claudia Cohen, Kathie Lee Gifford, Joe Di Maggio, Jack Nicholson, etc etc. There were three consecutive chapters on football coaches at Notre Dame. It got a little bit too much because of their placement, one after the other. On [...]

I thoroughly enjoyed this warm, funny and entertaining memoir. Regis is delightful. And so is his writing style. If you like learning about the past - our people, places and culture - you will find all you're looking for and more in this book. If you are interested in the entertainment industry you will like it even more. It's sad that the days of people interacting one on one are slipping away. Raw talent is not easily recognized. Too many are busy being walled off in their offices, cars and on [...]

The funny thing is, I remember Regis Philbin as the guy with the funny name on The Joey Bishop Show, which I watched with my parents in the 60s. As an adult, I learned that "Reege" is a likable and funny guy, full of stories.This collection of memorable people in Philbin's life is entertaining, fast moving, happy and good reading. He's not just name dropping the famous people he knows. They were each part of his world at one time, some continue to be his friends, and each had an impact on his ca [...]

How I Got This Way by Regis Philbin from IT Books, 2011This was a fun read. Regis has done a terrific job of writing about 31 people who have had an influence on his television/talk show career. Whether this was a person he had to fortune of meeting face to face or that he was forced to admire from afar. Regis' influences come from all walks of life including sports, military and show business. It is obvious that Regis holds each of these individuals in high regard, often portraying himself like [...]

What can I say, The Regis is The Regis, and I am one of those people who is old enough to remember The Joey Bishop Show, and for the first time seeing Regis Philbin on that late night show. I have always enjoyed Talk Shows, and Live With Regis was no exception. I loved watching him and Kathie Lee, and than later Kelly Ripa as his co-host on those morning shows. In this book Regis relates many stories of how he struggled over the years to become a talk show host. He writes about many people who w [...]

It was really interesting reading about Regis' life and how he got this way. His career spans decades and went through several transitions, though he always basically did the same job, whether it was radio, tv, sidekick, host. etc. Oddly enough, the thing missing from this book is the thing that has made him so popular in the past few dozen years, and that is a partner in crime, someone to bounce ideas off him and to play the straight man to his antics. The structure of the book forces him to no [...]

I picked this book up at a book sale because I thought it would be interesting to hear how Regis ended up in his career path. The book was published in 2011 but it almost feels like it could have been published decades before that; Every chapter focuses on a different person that has influenced Regis and most are figures from earlier generations (Steve Allen, Cary Grant, Dean Martin, Don Rickles, etc.)This wasn't a bad book but you'd be most interested if you are already a Regis fan.

This is a biographical account of the man so many have come to know and make a part of their mornings, a man who is perhaps as improbable as his name, Regis. There are a few moments of downright hilarity, and others of sadness, since that is what life is. But what makes Regis a household name is that he doesn't take things too seriously. And he brought that to the TV, and his audience responded to it. He has made many friends along the way. In fact, each chapter is dedicated to the people he's m [...]

I put this book in my wish list a few years ago when my husband and I went to see Live with Kelly (shortly after Regis left the show). He seems like an interesting character and the book was a decent read. I liked the format; he named each chapter after a person who influenced him (or made him this way). It was interesting to read some of the behind the scenes Hollywood stories. I'm a little your to really know much about some of the people (like Jack Paar), but was still able to enjoy those cha [...]

I really enjoyed reading this book. I've watched Regis's show since he came to New York and have always enjoyed my cup of coffee with him. Like visiting with a good friend every morning.I've heard most of his stories over the years, but it was fun to read them again.He's always come across as a very humble man and he's repeated his mothers words, over the years, "The poor house is right around the corner," and I believe he's lived his life accordingly.I loved his additional comments at the end o [...]
