Backstage at the Tonight Show: From Johnny Carson to Jay Leno Paperback – April 27, 2006
by Don Sweeney (Author), Ed McMahon (Foreword)

Don Sweeney was with the Tonight Show for nearly twenty years, and was one of the few staff members asked to remain when Jay Leno took over in 1992. This book is a collection of celebrity vignettes and anecdotes from the peak years of the Tonight Show, and includes behind-the-scenes looks at more than two dozen celebrities, including Bill Cosby, Frank Sinatra, David Letterman, Regis Philbin, Ray Charles, Tony Randall, Buddy Rich, Don Rickles, Stevie Wonder, Ed McMahon, and Johnny Carson himself. With an eye for the eccentric, amusing, or downright bizarre, Sweeney’s brief portraits offer a glimpse at celebrity from the other side of the curtain.

Review
A recommended pick for not only The Tonight Show viewers past and present, but for any who enjoy celebrity exposes. (Diane C. Donovan, editor, Midwest Book Review Midwest Book Review)
