The author, Robert Mills, was a writer for Bob Hope beginning in the late 70's. The book gives a good view of what it was like to work for Hope. The Laugh Makers includes anecdotes about all of Hope's staff members and about Hope himself. It was interesting to hear how much control Hope had at NBC (he could pick the day and time a show would appear) and how involved Hope was in post production. Mills and others traveled with Hope to China, Tahiti, Sweden, and London, among other places to tape Hope tv specials and these are all described in the book. Mills provides some of the dialog from the sketches or jokes which are good but just not as funny on paper as they would be being delivered by Hope. The book gives a great insight into the workings of the Hope empire and includes plenty of photographs as well. ( )
