Mr.Game Show, Wink Martindale, tells about his secret for success in Hollywood's fast lane. He takes us on a journey from Jackson, Tennessee to Tinseltown and lets us peek behind curtains of game shows, radio programs, concerts, and exclusive interviews with Elvis. Winking At Life is no quick dismissal of trouble, but an intimate, informed, and insightful choice. A most interesting read.

From Wink Martindale's passion to be in radio; to Memphis and witnessing first-hand the birth of "Presleymania"; Wink's career-altering "Deck of Cards" million-selling gold record; through his hosting of 19 game shows, including "Tic-Tac-Dough", "Gambit", "High Rollers" and most recently "Debt"; with over 200 color and black and white pictures from Wink's archive of celebrity guests and personal friends...from Wayne Newton to Johnny Mathis. This is Wink - from Tenn. to California -and all the fun and disappointments in between.Review:
"I was unable to put Wink's book down from the moment I began reading it. Totally engrossing. Wink's life as a boy growing up in a small Tennessee town reminded me of the movie "Breaking Away". He did. And how!" -- Wayne Newton
"One of the most interesting autobiographies I have read in a long time. Wink's career has been varied and fascinating. Truly an icon in the world of radio and game shows". -- Fred Wostbrock
"Wink's new book is a must for anybody who is currently caught up in the new game show mania sweeping the country. It gives you an inside appreciation of the genre from the inside out." -- Barry White
