Tom Bergeron‚ host of "Dancing with the Stars and "America's Funniest Home Videos‚" has always been ambitious‚ driven‚ and charming‚ but as a young man‚ he had an enemy that posed a serious threat to what otherwise would have been guaranteed success-a bad temper. His family and friends didn't keep their concerns to themselves‚ but Tom's petulance remained a problem until his first date with a woman who threatened to end their relationship when‚ in a fit of anger‚ he put a dent in his car door. "If you want us to go any further‚ you'd better do something about that‚" Lois said‚ unabashed and unafraid. Tom‚ embarrassed‚ then and there committed himself to controlling that temper. (That woman later became his wife‚ by the way.)
This humorous memoir will be filled with anecdotes of how Tom‚ who never breaks character‚ stutters or so much as breaks a sweat (even when an Osmond faints at his feet on live TV)‚ uses meditation and other regimented‚ relaxation techniques to stay focused‚ energetic‚ and happy on and off the camera.
