Description

One of the most popular television and cultural icons ever, Regis Philbin has been entertaining television audiences for more than fifty years--as a beloved morning-show host (Live with Regis and Kelly), a nighttime game-show host (Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?) and also as a fixture on national and local late-night talk shows. The irrepressible "Reege" has regaled television audiences with his stories for more than half a century, but he's saved the most hilarious, surprising, heartfelt, and inspiring tales for How I Got This Way. Both a fascinating show business memoir and a delightful primer for living the good life rolled into one, How I Got This Way is Reege being Reege, just the way we love him, as he shares the secrets to success and happiness that he has learned from his innumerable celebrity encounters, his close, personal friendships, and, of course, his relationship with his loving wife and family.

Back cover copy

In this entertaining memoir, the irrepressible Regis Philbin--consummate talk show host, man about town, loving husband, father, and yes, obsessive sports fan--looks back at his years in show business. How I Got This Way is filled with stories of lessons learned with extraordinary, and often unsuspecting, teachers: David Letterman, Donald Trump, Jack Nicholson; three legendary Notre Dame coaches; and, of course, longtime cohosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Kelly 'Pippa' Ripa, as well as his own lovely wife, Joy.

Whether he's revealing what really drove him "bonkers" on the set of Seinfeld, how he survived the first known bomb scare on live TV, or poignant memories of his last moments with his idol and dear friend, Jack Paar, Regis packs every page with his signature heart, wit, dynamic energy, and gratitude for everything life has brought him.
