"Not that there's anything wrong with it"; "I'm still master of my domain." The list of lines from the TV show Seinfeld that entered into society's conversational repertoire goes on and on. This comedy show, during its nine-year run, reconfigured the sitcom; it ended, not because of low ratings, but because creator Jerry Seinfeld knew to end on a high note, following the old show-biz admonition to leave your audience wanting more. Entertainment journalist and biographer Tracy combines a biography of Seinfeld with a history of Seinfeld. She chronicles his career as a stand-up comedian prior to his stardom as a television personality ("Hearing . . . people laugh was like a drug"). Painting a picture of a man with "extreme self-awareness and confidence," she effectively separates the real Jerry from the television Jerry. The show's three other stars, Jason Alexander, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Michael Richards, are well featured here. The many Seinfeld fans will learn from and enjoy this book, so expect demand. An episode guide is appended. Brad Hooper
