The chapter on books and reading is one that a lot of followers of this blog can identify with. Here's one line: "I cannot throw out books." Here's another: "I remember where I found every one." And another: "They pour from shelves onto tables, chairs, and the floor, and Chaz observes that I haven't read many of them and I never will. You just never know." If you don't read the rest of the book, you really should read this chapter.
Not that the others aren't equally well done. The chapters on actors and directors are fascinating, and the ones of Ebert's illnesses and current situation will leave you amazed at Ebert's courage. Check it out.
