i have Fein's book on Jack. it's sitting right next to Robert Taylor's book on Fred Allen and Mel Blanc's autobiography. i went through Fein's book and i liked it. since i don't know any of Jack's people personally, i can only take what i read as the truth until i read something else to the contrary and i consider the source. i feel Fein's book contained everything i always wanted to know about Jack Benny and his life off stage. i also have Joan Benny's book, too. i liked the part in Fein's book where he talks about Johnny Carson hanging up on Jack because he thought it was an impersonator! i enjoyed the book, i guess that's what i'm trying to say.
