This Is Your Captain Speaking Book Review
I love reading the stories of where people came from, who they learned from, and where they draw inspiration from. I missed the Mary Tyler Moore Show original episodes, but have seen a few in reruns. But I did see many episodes of The Love Boat over the past few years thanks to Netflix and TV Land. This book about Gavin MacLeod gives so much dimension to the story of Captain Stubing.
Life doesn’t always go the way you plan, but for Allan George See, life has always been an adventure full of changes and unexpected turns. Allan who we know as Gavin MacLeod got his start as a four year old in a preschool play. I love reading the story of famous people, and this book delivered an inspirational story of his life.
Gavin MacLeod is best known as Captain Stubing on ABC’s worldwide smash The Love Boat but also as Murray Slaughter on The Mary Tyler Moore Show. He and wife Patti hosted TBN’s Back on Course for 17 years, but for 30 years, and still today, Gavin is the global ambassador for Princess Cruises. He dedicates acting talents to Christian films and is often called to MC or speak at events.
For 16 years, millions of Americans welcomed me into their living rooms every Saturday night. Now I’d like to share more special moments with you. I’ll tell you some stories about what it was like to meet and work with with hollywood stars but most importantly the hard life lessons that I learned along the way and the key to happiness.
