Good informative book

for anyone who calls themselves a fan of Tom Hanks this would be a must-read. the narrator himself at times kind of sounds like Tom Hanks. Tom Hanks is my all-time favorite actor and I thoroughly enjoyed knowing a little more about him and all the behind-the-scenes information and production of every film he has been in.
