Being Henry: The Fonz...and Beyond

I am pretty sure everyone has heard what a nice guy Henry Winkler is. I'm here to confirm, he is one of the nicest people ever (if not THE nicest).

I have met Winkler several times at various conventions. Every time, he walks the line thanking everyone for being there and being patient. It doesn't matter if the line is five deep or hundreds in number, Winkler leaves his booth every so often to walk the line and express his appreciation. It's not schmaltzy either. He asks your name, shakes your hand and even hugs on occasion.

His line often moves slowly, because he takes time to interact with each person once they are at his booth. He genuinely engages everyone. In a world of quick pics and next up, Winkler is a rarity.

Winkler is currently on tour to promote his book, Being Henry: The Fonz...and Beyond. Go to for more info on the book and tour. I will be at a Chicago stop and recapping all here.
