Here's the Deal, Don't Touch Me
Howie Mandel With Josh YoungAudiobook CD - 2009
Howie Mandel is one of the most recognizable names in entertainment -- respected by his peers and beloved by audiences as host of the enormously popular prime-time game show Deal or No Deal. With a career that spans three decades and many different show-business platforms, he's one of the most versatile performers anywhere. But there are aspects of his personal and professional life he's never talked about publically -- until now. Eleven years ago, Mandel first told the world about his "germophobia." He's recently started discussing his adult ADHD as well. Now, for the first time, he reveals the details of his struggle with these challenging disorders. He catalogs his numerous fears and neuroses and shares entertaining stories about how he has tried to integrate them into his act. And he speaks frankly and honestly about the ways his condition has affected his personal life -- as a son, husband, and father of three. Fans who have been dying to know "the deal" behind Howie Mandel's remarkable rise through the show-business ranks will be rewarded with many never-before-told anecdotes, each one generously leavened with Mandel's trademark humor. As heartfelt as it is hilarious, Here's the Deal, Don't Touch Me is the story of one man's effort to draw comic inspiration out of his darkest, must vulnerable places. It's sure to please Mandel's legion of fans -- and provide hope to the millions who strive to succeed in spite of OCD and ADHD.
