This was my second book of leisure ever (being a 21 year old and my first book of leisure being the Hunger Game trilogy). I got fascinated with Johnny Carson and then that lead me to the whole debate of Jay Leno and David Letterman. I stumbled across this book title and say why not it could be good. Well it was more than good; it was a page turner for me. Bill Carter wrote the book with so much detail and quotes from people that it really felt liek you were inside the war of late night. I went from never reading a book outside of school to reading this book in a weeks time. I highly recommend this to anyone who ponders what happened with the switch from Johnny Carson. This book will not disappoint you.
