Levenson’s grew up the youngest of eight children in a large Jewish immigrant family in New York. He evolved from a Spanish teacher in Brooklyn to working the Catskills circuit as a comedian.

Like Levenson the performer, Levenson the writer is gentle, sentimental . A nice man, a nice book for the family circles with East Side ties.

Like Levenson the performer, Levenson the writer is gentle, sentimental and a hyperbolic storyteller, whose metier is a happy combination of Golden's Lower East Side nostalgia binges and Alan King's jovial assaults on contemporary idiocies of the new generation and its beleaguered parents. Levenson does the New York shtik - the bracing hard life (""We had a permissive father. Levenson's low-keyed style allows him to slip into both genial sermonizing and solemn matters with ease.

For the American actor, see Sam Levinson. He was an author and wrote Everything But Money (1966), the bestseller Sex and the Single Child (1969), In One Era And Out The Other (1973), You Can Say That Again, Sam! (1975), and You Don't Have to be in Who's Who to Know What's What (1979). Levenson appeared frequently in the "Borscht Belt" hotels of the Catskill Mountains. The 150-seat Sam Levenson Recital Hall at Brooklyn College was named after him in 1988 in gratitude for his donations over the years to the Performing Arts Center.

When a family with children have tensions they need to read this book out loud.
It will have everyone laughing out loud before long.

If you want to laugh get this book. I loved his old-style humor. At the end he gets a little serious about modern day changes. Purchased at Amazon.

Sam Levenson was a loveable character. I must have first seen or heard of him on the 'Ed Sullivan show' where he first became nationally known as a comedian. A round bespectacled laughing- and - chuckling at his own jokes small and extemely pleasant man he , it turns out, also did more than fire out one- liners on T.V. He wrote books like this one which tell of his childhood and his years in teaching in the N.Y. Public School System. Levenson writes about being poor in a world -of- hard knocks, with a large loving family as early companion. He is a person who shows great respect for others, and his humor is gentle and self- deriding. His ability to turn a winning expression is never in doubt. And this book is filled with amusing one- liners, anecdotes, little stories.

Among the subjects he writes about are 'Sorry, Wrong Era' 'Poor Sammy's Almanac' ' Geta New One ' ' You never get the Dessert' 'Auto Biography' ' Frank Lloyd Wrong' ' The Men in Mama's Life ' 'Mama, It's Cold Inside' 'There's No Present like the time' 'Panic Button' "Meatballs vs. goofballs' 'He's a Sophomore' 'LOve, Shmove' et al.

Here is a sample of the kind of wisdom with a chuckle Levenon gives us.

" Along with Papa's "if you ever need a helping hand" advice, he often threw in " And remember if you want your dreams to come true, don't sleep."

I followed the American dream, often at the price of sleep.It left me more time to work on my dreams. I figured that after my dreams came true I could always catch up on my sleep.

My dreams did come true. In fact, it is truth that has been causing me a great deal of insomnia. Every silver lining has a cloud.

In this way, I started out in one era and arrived in another. The trip took half a lifetime.By the time I got to my good old dream castle at the end of the rainbow ,I had been condemned and replaced by something more up-to-date in pre-fabricated temporary contemporary. The times had changed.

I met all the challenges, reaped the rewards, and now find myself with everything a man could ask for , including an outstanding collection of doubts, misgivings, and ambivalences of all sizes."

Again this work provides an opportunity to be in the company of a gentle, wise, and humorous human being. A real mensch and a funny one at that.
