The pair travelled extensively around the globe, and owned fishing boats that involved them in embarrassing incidents.

Most tably, they started a food company, Newman's Own, as a prank and watched it soar into a major enterprise that has given all its 200 million dollars of profits to charities. Hotchner's kwledge of Newman is unparalleled, and as a gifted storyteller he brings to the reader crucial insights Newman revealed about himself. Paul and Meis the story of an unusual friendship and a tribute to the beloved actor who gave to the world as much as the world gave him.
