Michael's memories are my memories, only clearer. What a talent for details! It was very moving for me to relive so much of our lives through Michael's eyes. Very entertaining. Charming. And, more importantly, true. As Mom wrote on one of her photos to him, 'Happy Thoughts'.

Knowing how much Mom liked Michael Stern I knew his book would be honest -- and it is. I Had A Ball is full of stories no one but Michael would know. His friendship with Mom is evident on every page. A good read. Thank you Michael.
