For decades, Bob Barker has been a familiar and friendly face on American TV. Over the years, Barker has worked as a game show host for such shows as The Price is Right and Truth Or Consequences, and as the emcee for such yearly beauty pageants as Miss USA and Miss Universe. In his book, Priceless Memories, Bob Barker provides an intimate and engaging look at his life, including the various shows that he appeared on, notable celebrities that he has met, and stories about some of his favorite contestants. He also pulls back the curtain and allows us to take a glimpse behind-the-scenes at the various shows that he has worked on.

Along the way, Barker, also shares insights about his association with the animals rights movements, how he came to be such an active and visible spokesperson for animal rights, and, of course, why it is so important for you to get your pets spayed or neutered!

This book is not just about Barker's life in television. It is a complete biography, tracing his life from his early years spent on an American Indian Reservation, through the Great Depression and onto his military career in the U.S. Navy during World War II, his marriage, and how he came to find his way into television.

Bob Barker served as the host of The Price is Right for thirty-five years. Over that time he acquired thousands of loyal fans, all of whom will be enthralled by Priceless Memories. Barker reads his story, himself, and listening to this book, you can easily image that Barker is speaking directly to you, sharing his memories and interesting stories directly with you. Basically, this book will leave you with the feeling that you just spent some quality time talking directly to a close friend, who truly enjoyed having an open and honest chat with you. A must for all of Bob's fans, as well as for those interested in the history of television.
