Andy Griffith tells his life story with candor and honesty.
He's best known as Mayberry's Sheriff Andy Taylor and Atlanta lawyer Ben Matlock, but Andy Griffith's career includes stand-up, Broadway plays, films, and success as a recording artist. In his long-awaited autobiography Andy tells of growing up poor in North Carolina and of attending college to become a Moravian minister, as well as how he discovered comedy and eventually played in Broadway's "No Time for Sergeants" and starred in the movie "A Face in the Crowd." Including stories from filming "The Andy Griffith Show" and "Matlock," Andy takes readers behind the scenes, sharing the good times and the bad: his joy-filled marriage to Cindi, struggles with his health, and his recent work in movies like "Waitress" and the award-winning video for Brad Paisley's "Waitin' on a Woman." Intimate, heartwarming, and characteristically humorous, Andy's story is sure to captivate readers and fill in a vital piece of missing Americana.
