Based on scores of candid interviews with family members, confidantes, colleagues, and present and former friends and associates who have never spoken out before, this scrupulously researched and meticulously reported book reveals exclusive details and secrets about Jerry Seinfeld which will fascinate his fans.

One show more than any other in recent history has reshaped the face of TV as we know it?nd one man is responsible. Jerry Seinfeld.

Jerry went straight from college graduation to amateur night try–out at New York's Catch a Rising Star in 1976. He continued to perform in local clubs and Catskill Mountain resorts, until his career was boosted by an appearance on a Rodney Dangerfield HBO special in 1976. But it was a successful spot on Carson's Tonight show which ultimately launched him as a stand–up comedian at age 27. He also appeared four times as "Frankie" on Benson TV sitcom, and after he was abruptly fired from the show, he swore never to do another sitcom unless he had greater control. This opportunity emerged when he was invited to create a sitcom for NBC in 1979, and teamed with one–time stand–up colleague, Larry David. The Seinfeld Chronicles finally appeared in 1989 and became the long–running Seinfeld series which dominated water–cooler conversation all over the world until its end in 1998.
