Bryan Cranston landed his first role at seven, when his father, a struggling actor and director, cast him in a commercial. Soon Bryan was haunting the local movie theater, reenacting scenes with his older brother. Acting was clearly his destiny - until one day his father disappeared. As a young man on a classic cross-country motorcycle trip, he found himself stranded at a rest area in the Blue Ridge Mountains. To pass the time, he read a tattered copy of Hedda Gabler, and in a flash he found himself face-to-face with his original calling.

Pros:
-I think Bryan Cranston is a fantastic actor and this transferred really well into this book. He seems passionate, I really like that.

- It was fascinating hearing him speak about his life, trials & tribulations, as well as the highs.

-Eloquently and expertly read.

-95% of the stories were genuinely interesting and kept my attention completely.



Cons:
-The ending felt a little flat to me, personally I think it should have ended with more of a crescendo, as it was I think it was a little lost.
