9780061765872: I'm Hosting as Fast as I Can!: Zen and the Art of Staying Sane in Hollywood

An Insider's Hollywood Survival Guide

He’s one of the most ubiquitous men on television. Certainly the most calm, cool, and collected—the king of "off the cuff." And no one throws to a commercial better. Yes, Tom Bergeron is a Hollywood staple, and the role for which he is best known is . . . well . . . himself. But while he’s a comforting presence to millions of people, cultivating this seemingly unshakable positive outlook and cool persona took as much motivation, inspiration, perseverance, and experience as it would take one to prepare a classic part for the stage. I'm Hosting as Fast as I Can! is the trying, often laugh-out-loud journey it took to get to himself.

Product Description:

For readers of John O’Hurley’s It’s Okay to Miss the Bed on the First Jump and Chelsea Handler’s Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea, Daytime Emmy-winner Tom Bergeron—host of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars and America’s Funniest Home Videos—offers a series of humorous and inspirational stories on surviving Hollywood, including behind-the-camera stories with A-list celebrities.

From the Back Cover:

Tom Bergeron, host of "Dancing with the Stars and "America′s Funniest Home Videos," has always been ambitious, driven, and charming, but as a young man, he had an enemy that posed a serious threat to what otherwise would have been guaranteed success-a bad temper. His family and friends didn′t keep their concerns to themselves, but Tom′s petulance remained a problem until his first date with a woman who threatened to end their relationship when, in a fit of anger, he put a dent in his car door. "If you want us to go any further, you′d better do something about that," Lois said, unabashed and unafraid. Tom, embarrassed, then and there committed himself to controlling that temper. (That woman later became his wife, by the way.)

This humorous memoir will be filled with anecdotes of how Tom, who never breaks character, stutters or so much as breaks a sweat (even when an Osmond faints at his feet on live TV), uses meditation and other regimented, relaxation techniques to stay focused, energetic, and happy on and off the camera.
