This book actually will only score a "7" for die-hard National Lampoon fans. Author Simmons was more like an unfunny father figure with a lot of advertising knowledge than the person behind the driven and deranged staff that was responsible for the funniest magazine of all time.Matty Simmons keeps it all in the first person, and in a fascinating read, takes you through the history of the publication, from its squabbles with local Harvard Lampoon, to its fledgling stage shows with Chevy Chase and John Belushi, to its megastardom with its Vacation films to its final undoing from writer Tony Hendra and actor Timothy Hutton, who engineered a hostile take over in the late 80's
