Summary

Kelsey Grammer's career has been blessed with great comedy, but to know his personal life is to truly know tragedy. In this frank, compelling, and moving autobiography, the Emmy Award-winning star of Frasier and Cheers poignantly recounts the overwhelming tragedies that haunted his early life - the murders of his father and sister, and accidental deaths of his 2 half-brothers. Despite his remarkable television success, Grammer's struggle to cope with these traumas led him to drug and alcohol addictions that soon became public. So Far... describes his nightmarish journey and inspiring triumphs, with behind-the-scenes stories from the sets of his 2 hit shows. Human, fallible, funny, and wise, Grammer has developed a profound philosophical approach to both the comic and the tragic aspects of life.

Unmistakably Kelsey

From Frasier to Boss to sideshow bob, there's no one more distinguishable than Kelsey Grammer. Hearing the inaccuracies exposed that were reported in the press and stated on the internet, along with the hard truthes of his tragic life, read by the man himself is as warm and comforting as a hot bath in the dead of winter. Yet the experience is intensified by the high quality prose of 'so far'.

Would recomend it highly to anyone, and would willingly forgo any luxury of value to purchase this audiobook.

Selfish or honest?

I loved the insight into Kelsey's life. A few people have criticised not mentioning the Simpsons but the book is more about his personal struggles. He often mentions people who assisted him and the luck of a lot of his success. Worth a read or listen!

Don't listen to this if you want a laugh

Well he certainly is an unusual character but after a while I felt it was all a bit too serious. obviously, having one's father and sister murdered isn't funny but there doesn't seem to have been much joy in his life at all..All his marriages seemed to fail due to the women he married .He has problems with drink drugs and women and it is difficult to know how much of his autobio is true as he doesn't take much responsibility for his own actions.I felt sorry for him and don't think I would like to meet him in real life. he's clever and talented but very troubled and there are no laughs in this book AT ALL. Considering his comedic performances I felt that was a great pity.But then he didn't write the scripts, he only wrote this rather sad book

Thoughtful & Sincere

I really enjoyed hearing Kelsey Grammer’s personal story. It’s raw, real and full of humor and heart. I’m glad he chose to read it himself for audio as he has a gorgeous deep voice. He seems to be a kind, thoughtful and fascinating character to study.

Quick Read

Wish the book covered more of his career. It was inspirational for the number of tragedies in his life.
