This is Your Captain Speaking: Book Review

captain

Last night, I finished reading “This is Your Captain Speaking” by Gavin MacLeod and Mark Dagostino.

For those of you who don’t know – which is everyone except my parents and like two people – I am a huge fan of the “The Love Boat.” So when I had the chance to review this book, I felt like God was listening.

My mom doesn’t know but when I was grounded, I waited until my grandma was busy and watched “The Love Boat.” Rebellious, I know. I just had to watch it! I was eight years old and addicted to “The Love Boat.”

This book isn’t just about the “The Love Boat.” MacLeod tells his whole life story. He has so many interesting stories. He talks about his parents and growing up without having much money. When he was a young kid, he knew that he loved acting. MacLeod writes about his early days as an actor in New York and his move to California.

He also writes about having a problem with alcohol and being divorced from two wives. I appreciate that he doesn’t blame anyone else and takes responsibility for his problems.

I always forget that he was on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show.” He talks about how wonderful it was to be a part of that show.

MacLeod has also worked or met with just about every famous person that you’ve ever hear of. He appreciates all of the opportunities that he has had.

The story is really a testimony about all of the good things that have happened to him because he is an ambassador for God. He has a really interesting testimony that you will have to read to believe. He is truly blessed.

I only have one criticism. There are so many exclamation points!! I guess that he is excited about life!!! There’s nothing wrong with that, is there?!
