    It s a sad thing this is now out of print, because it was a lot of fun learning about the development of the show and get the accounts of so many people involved in it The cover art is also really charming.If I had to say there was a weak spot in the book, it would probably be the author s desperate search for a feminist angle in the show s writing and creation I m not saying there couldn t have been one or that it would be a bad thing But he reaches for this angle in just about every plot and and episode script, and it s almost never where anyone involved with the show said there was one It begins to feel forced.I d still recommend this book because it provides a lot of very interesting background Thankfully there are a lot of cheap used copies, which is how I got the book.

    This is primarily a book about the writers of the Mary Tyler Moore show, James Brooks and Allan Burns being the foundational pair Moore herself declined to be interviewed, but nearly everyone else associated with the show contributes The main take away from the book other than the fact that network executives are truly clueless the majority of the time is that the writers were given free reign to produce scripts that developed the characters The aim was not the cheap laugh, nor the easy laugh, but the sustained one.In that respect, MTM deserves its praise as a landmark comedy.

    I was looking for stories about MTM and company This, as the title states, is about what it took to run the show Not as interesting as I had hoped.
