Brady, Brady, Brady book. He seems to have no awareness that much of the show’s success is attributable to nostalgia and the enduring (ironic) appeal of kitsch. Both Sherwood and Lloyd trash Robert Reed in their sections of the book, but he is the only person connected with the show who is disparaged in any way.

The Brady Bunch is one of the most beloved series to ever grace American television screens.

About the Author: Sherwood Schwartz is the creator of The Brady Bunch.

The Brady Bunch Cast: Then and Now. Schwartz immediately set out to find the child actors who would make . Schwartz immediately set out to find the child actors who would make up "The Bradley Brood," as the show was called at that point in time, and from 264 interviews in the summer of '68, he made sure he had a total of 12 kids on hold: three blonde boys, three blonde girls, three brunette boys and three brunette girls.

The Brady Bunch was an iconic TV sitcom that aired from 1969-1974. It was about a man (Robert Reed) who had three sons (Barry Williams, Christopher Knight and Mike Lookinland) who then married a woman (Florence Henderson) who had three daughters (Maureen McCormick, Eve Plumb and Susan Olsen). In Brady, Brady, Brady: The Complete Story of The Brady Bunch as Told by the Father/Son Team who Really Know, Sherwood Schwartz and his son, Lloyd J. Schwartz, explain another crazy cost-cutting move of that same season.

In Brady, Brady, Brady, Lloyd Schwartz mentions that he tried to cool .

In Brady, Brady, Brady, Lloyd Schwartz mentions that he tried to cool things down between Barry and Maureen mainly because on-the-job romances rarely worked, especially between teenagers. Sherwood Schwartz had hoped that this backdoor pilot would be picked up as a series, since the networks had recently announced that they were pushing prime time forward half an hour to begin at 7:30 . and they would be in need of some family-friendly programs.

I grew up with the Bradys' and recently introduced the series to my kids. The show continues to find a new audience 40 years plus after it began airing. I thought this book would be a fun peek behind the Brady staircase for some neat behind the scenes info.

The book is divided in half, the first half written by show creator Sherwood Schwartz, and the second by his son, producer Lloyd Schwartz. In the first half, Sherwood tells of creating, developing and selling the show for televison. Lloyd's section focused on the day-to-day activity of running the show, highlighting specific episodes and carrying on the Brady legacy.

Sherwood's section is a compelling read, not just for Brady Bunch fans, but for anyone with an interest in broadcasting, writing or production. Sherwood tells of the obstacles of working within the studio system, writing issues, and casting a prime time show. I found this portion of the book to be particularly interesting, and that his activity was focused around one of my favorite TV shows made it all the better.

I enjoyed Lloyd's portion of the book as well, but he never really goes in depth about too much other his rapid promotion from Dialogue Coach to Producer and his affection for the cast and crew (Robert Reed excluded). His section plays out more like a personal biography instead of focusing on the history of the show. While there was some interesting parts here and there, I found Barry Williams' bookGrowing Up Brady: I Was a Teenage Greg, Special Collector's Editionmuch more informative and packed with tons of behind the scenes info that Lloyd barely mentions.

Overall I would say this is worth a pick-up if on only for Sherwood's portion, and definately worth a buy for Brady Bunch fans

While there are some very interesting little tidbits here and there, overall, this book is VERY light on information and reads VERY quickly. I was reading along, and before I knew it, I was almost done with the book. There really isn't much to this book, there are wide spaces between the lines, and lots of the chapters are very short (making for many, MANY half-full pages, when the chapter ends before the bottom of the page.) The anecdotes sound like they're going to be interesting (how did Peter learn to do the Bogart impersonation) but when its explained, its quick and not all that interesting. Not very in-depth, nor do they spend much time explaining things, the things all of us Brady-philes are waiting to hear!

As other reviewers have stated, there are also LOTS of "clapping himself on the back" from Lloyd Schwartz. The first part of the book is very nice (albeit simple, see above) from Sherwood Schwartz. Once it shifts to the Lloyd Schwartz part, there really is a lot of self-congratulations about what an incredible talent LLOYD SCHWARTZ is, and what a jerk Robert Reed was. Something tells me there are two sides to the Lloyd Schwartz/Bob Reed debate. I think this was a case of two egos colliding, to be honest. :)

Regardless its a nice read, very quick, and has some nice insight...but really, when its billed as the "Complete Story" as told by those who 'REALLY know'...I expected a LOT more.

I gave this book 2 stars. Sherwood Schwartz put together a great collage of backstories and anicdotes. He also was constantly dogging Bob Reed which wasn't really fair since Reed isn't here to defend himself against such harsh criticism. Lloyd on the other hand was much worse. I found him to be fake (he says the brady bunch was much like his life in response to critics that said the show was unrealistic). Oh really? You had a life like the Bradys? Lloyd also centered much of the second half of book on himself and not really the cast. He was too obsessed being an associate director and centers his half on himself. I found him to be egotistical, arrogant and all about bashing Robert Reed. I also think Lloyd wanted to look like the good guy, for example during the filming of the episode in Cincinnati (and according to Barry Williams book) Robert Reed was the one that objected to riding the rollar coaster because of safety concerns with the camera being mounted to coaster car. He suggested a dry run with the camera mounted and it flew off as he suspected. Of course Lloyd Schwartz takes credit for this. His hatred for Bob Reed and his obsession with taking a leading role in directing the Brady Bunch is the theme of the second half. He should have just called it me me me.

This Brady memoir is told by the father/son team who produced the show. It contains some interesting details told from their perspective.I enjoyed learning about the teacher on the set and working around State regulations for child actors. That being said, this already fairly short book was "fluffed out "with extraneous details not especially relevant to most Brady fans. Although I did not find the younger Schwartz as arrogant or annoying as many other reviewers, the repetitive complaints about Robert Reed were a little inappropriate.
For die-hard fans only, all others may skip.

Enjoyed the inside look at what takes place behind the scenes. I grew up watching the show and appreciated learning more about what took place behind the scenes to bring the Brady Bunch to life each week. I have it four stars because I would have liked the book to be a bit longer and hoped to hear more stories about the show. Overall, great read.
