Publisher's Summary

Who made the phone call that got HBO to launch the show? What’s the significance of all those eggs? And what the hell ever happened to the Russian? In Woke Up This Morning, Michael Imperioli and Steve Schirripa have all the answers - and they’re revealing where all the bodies are buried.  

‘Someday soon, you’re gonna have families of your own and if you’re lucky, you’ll remember the little moments like this, that were good.’ (Tony Soprano)

Inspired by their globally successful podcast, Talking Sopranos, Michael Imperioli (Christopher Moltisanti) and Steve Schirripa (Bobby Baccalieri) will finally reveal all the Soprano family secrets in a surprising, funny and honest new book. Filled with exclusive interviews with the cast, crew, producers, writers, directors and, of course, the series creator David Chase, Michael and Steve cover the entire history of The Sopranos - from those ducks to the infamous cut to black - and tell all the incredible stories that fans have been waiting to hear for more than 20 years.

Weaving revelatory interviews with hilarious behind-the-scenes anecdotes, Woke Up This Morning is the comprehensive history of the series that became a worldwide cultural phenomenon, ushered in a new Golden Age of Television and to this day continues to be one of the most binged shows of all time.

Narrators: Aspen Vincent, Chris Ciulla, Christina DeLaine, Dan Bittner, Eliza Foss, Eva Kaminsky, Fred Berman, Geoffrey Cantor, James Lurie, Jason Culp, Kathleen McInerney, Lisa Flanagan, Michael Imperioli, Nancy Peterson, Oliver Wyman, Richard Ferrone and Steve Schirripa.

Unnecessary

WTF! It’s just the same stuff from the podcast ( almost word for word ) but acted out without the real stars ( except Steve and Michael ) I love the sopranos and the podcast but this is one step too far. It’s like book about the podcast that is about the sopranos.

Magnificent

As a massive fan of the show I was so excited to get this as soon as it was released. I have to say that it doesn’t disappoint. Yes, there could have been more characters from the show - Paulie and Adrianna for starters - but it’s still a marvellous listen.

Massive Disappointment

I love the Sopranos, without doubt one of the top 5 TV shows ever made. Massive fan.

This was so badly put together. The narration is awkward and just doesn’t flow well at all. Plus, the got actors to play the parts of the cast they interviewed ?! What’s that all about.

The final straw was when Michael refused to say what the significance of 3 o’clock was from one of the series, that it would go to the grave with him. Steve said, people have paid money for this audio book they want to know…….no secret revealed. Thanks goodness for Audibles excellent refund policy.

Excellent way to experience oral history

A work of nonfiction that is an oral history is so perfect for an audiobook adaptation as the words on the page come alive when spoken by the interviewees
