Eisenberg is best known for his decade and a half at Hanna-Barbera during the hey day of Saturday morning cartoons. This book is profusely illustrated with vintage photos of Jerry and his colleagues at each of the studios he worked, as well as artwork from each studio.

From the back cover:

"This is the story of my adventure, among wonderful memories of friendship, love and pain that have accompanied me.

"A journey that, thanks to my father, brought me through the art of drawing, to meet and work with other artists from the world of cartoons and to create strange and crazy characters that made children from all over the world laugh and have fun.

"This is the story of my life".
