"In my opinion, 'Luck' has little to do with Dick Van Dyke's life.
It is, rather, his innate kindness and talent that have had an
extraordinary effect in shaping the man. And what a fascinating
self-portrait he's given us in this book."--Mary Tyler
"From the time I worked with Dick on the movie Bye Bye Birdie, I have admired his many talents, not the least of which is the joy and enthusiasm he shares with audiences. I'm a big fan of his . . . and his book."--Ann-Margret
"Van Dyke tells a wonderful story about himself and his times. And--in an often surprsingly relevant manner--our times. We've always liked the performer--it's hard not to like Dick Van Dyke--but this will will make you admire him."--Playbill
