Pub. Date:

In this entertaining memoir, the irrepressible Regis Philbin--consummate talk show host, man about town, loving husband, father, and yes, obsessive sports fan--looks back at his years in show business. How I Got This Way is filled with stories of lessons learned with extraordinary, and often unsuspecting, teachers: David Letterman, Donald Trump, Jack Nicholson; three legendary Notre Dame coaches; and, of course, longtime cohosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Kelly 'Pippa' Ripa, as well as his own lovely wife, Joy.

Whether he's revealing what really drove him "bonkers" on the set of Seinfeld, how he survived the first known bomb scare on live TV, or poignant memories of his last moments with his idol and dear friend, Jack Paar, Regis packs every page with his signature heart, wit, dynamic energy, and gratitude for everything life has brought him.
