Bob Hope's Books

I think these are all the books credited to Bob Hope during his lifetime. They're all good reads although it's now known that most were largely ghosted by various of his comedy writers. Bob gave us 100 years. Today he would have turned 113 years old!

Below is the day I met Bob in 1976. He seemed quite deaf and, in fact, when I got close enough in line I could see he was wearing a hearing aid.

And below is the autograph I watched him sign for me that day, surprisingly legible when you see just how many books he was signing! Those authors who just put a line and call it a signature have NO excuse!

  1. There's also 1954's Have Tux, Will Travel, "as told to Pete Martin."
