I wanted this book to be written so that our grandchildren will know the contributions their grandfather and their parents made to television and daytime drama.

Lee Philip was a huge star in Chicago when the pair met and.

Ironic, considering the book's title claims it's about the "young" life of the soap creator. The book could've been at least 50 pages shorter but it was a fun and interesting read. No reason is given for why he wanted to leave his high-paying job in advertising to write for soaps-it's just stated that he really wanted to do it. There is very, very little in this book about Bell's background, his flaws, his reasoning behind making certain decisions, his behind the scenes battles, or his life outside his TV productions. Instead the book focuses on his shows and his characters. Jan 09, 2013 Kynthia rated it it was amazing. Loved it! Love Bill Bell!

Lee Phillip Bell, the wife of The Young & The Restless creator writes in the preface.."I wanted this book to be written so that our grandchildren will know the contributions their grandfather and their parents made to television and daytime drama." And, so begins this captivating story of the life of Bill Bell--arguably Daytime television's most iconic producer and writer. As a die hard fan of CBS Y&R for more years than I can even remember I was immediately drawn into the genesis of this great real life drama. Lee Philip was a huge star in Chicago when the pair met and wed. Bill worked his way up in advertising and then found himself the willing pupil of the grandmother of soaps--Irna Phillips. He worked long and hard and showed an early skill for the medium making his mark of the mighty (At That Time) Days of Our Lives and, ultimately on what would become the most successful Daytime Soap Opera of all time--The Young & The Restless. (which, as of this date has been #1 in the ratings for 27 years)

Michael Maloney is an excellent writer and the perfect person to tell his tale. He paints the picture with careful, respectful strokes much in the way the Bell's have lived their lives, "with that midwest loveliness and elegance" Readers who are looking for a more dishy, Kitty Kelly-esque expose will be disappointed here. These pages are a glowing tribute with dozens and dozens of quotes from those who knew him best.

The final quarter of the book, (I wanted it to go on forever) wrap things up perhaps a bit too quick, with many summary paragraphs spanning long periods of time, leading to the heartbreaking final years of Bill Bell and his sad passing with his loving wife by his side to the very end.

"The Young & Restless Life of Bill Bell" is a must read for long-time Y&R fans and every budding writer to learn not only how The Master of The Game ruled television, but, even more importantly--especially in Hollywood--How to do so with grace, elegance and compassion for people.

As a longtime Y&R viewer, it was great to find out about the man behind the long running soap. I have always been intrigued by how these stories come about. Mr. Bell was a consummate professional and it shows in the storytelling to this day. He was also a family man and that too shows in his storytelling. Many of his stories from long ago that were never resolved are now coming back to the forefront of the show many years later.
For instance, the who ran down Christine and Paul in 1994 is a major story at the moment. Mr. Bell was pretty much one of a kind in his storytelling. Thank goodness he taught the next generation of storytellers how to create his magic.

If you don't know William J. Bell, then you don't watch soaps. In fact, William J. Bell and his beloved wife, Lee Phillip, developed and created "The Young and The Restless" and "The Bold and the Beautiful" which are both ranked number one and two in soap opera ratings even before the extinction of American soaps.

William J. Bell was mentored by Chicago soap mother,creator, writer, and visionary producer Irna Phillips, who wasn't an easy woman but an incredible genius who mentored William J. Bell and Agnes Nixon (creator and head writer of All My Children and One Life To Live). They were her proteges and a reminder of the old triumvirate of daytime dramatic television.

William J. Bell married the lovely Lee Phillip, a Chicago television personality for thirty years before Oprah Winfrey. They are the parents of William J. Bell Jr., Lauralee Bell, and Bradey Bell.

Their partnership onscreen and offscreen have created two soaps, "The Young and The Restless" and "The Bold and the Beautiful." After years of writing for Irna, Bill finally got a chance to write and create his own soap.

"The Young and the Restless" debuted in 1973 and took only a few years before becoming the first in the soap opera ratings. Unlike the other soaps, "The Young and The Restless" was definitely different drama in terms of storytelling, characters, and style. His show had a different feel that was largely masculine, cold, dark, and distant at times but his characters were realistic, appealing, and very identifiable to audiences for years.

His stories were written carefully and character driven. Some story lines even took years to develop and unfold for audiences but they were well worth the wait in gold to finally see fruition. Like an onion, Bell peeled off the characters and storylines layer by layer.

Unlike General Hospital with it's Luke and Laura, Bell created and developed his characters to be realistic. Unlike it's competition, Bell never relied on superstar couples, outlandish storylines, and back from the dead. Once Jeanne Cooper stated that their characters stayed dead on their show. Times have changed since then.

In fact, "The Young and the Restless," was once the soap that others inspired too but now it's about survival. Too bad, William J. Bell and Irna Phillips didn't live to see the destruction of the soap opera genre in American television. They would be appalled and saddened that their genre is dying away as we speak and fighting for survival like an endangered speices.

I still think William J. Bell should have been awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Television with his wife as well. I once wrote a letter to the Kennedy Center for the annual honors ceremony. William J. Bell and Helen Wagner (As The World Turns Actress for 54 years) were whom I suggested that they should be recognized for their contributions and services to television. Of course, I think Bill Bell deserved more accolades like the National Medal of The Arts as well. In retrospect, I wished the book was written before Bell's death.

I still believe William J. Bell deserves a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame even posthumously for television. When I think of writers and visionaries, I think of William J. Bell, Irna Phillups, and Agnes Nixon who were the triumvirate of daytime dramas. Their visionary ideas have produced unforgettable images, characters, and memories that should not be forgotten. I just wished that others would honor and respect them even now.

He also respected his audiences in his writing styles. He wrote to the audiences and not at them. He never alienated the viewers but brought them. His style of writing is sorely missed.

William J. Bell was forced into retirement because of his Alzheimer's disease. He is now interred with celebrities at Westwood Cemetery. I know we'll never have the likes of a William J. Bell again. He was brilliant, kind, genius, compassionate, and understood people in a way that writers should aspire too. Too bad, his shows have turned into an embarrassing mess of failed story lines, poor acting, and lack of vision and direction.

I'm not quite finished with it, but I am really enjoying it! It's very interesting to read about how Y&R got started and how Bill Bell orchestrated it all!! Brilliant man! The writing today can't hold a candle to the early days of Y&R! I also enjoy reading about some of the stories of Y&R and some that I had forgotten or didn't know about. I did take a hiatus from the show (shame on me) when I got busy with "real life" events. I tried to keep up and watch occasionally but did miss out on some, I have been watching faithfully again for the last couple of years and find the acting and the writing of the show not quite as good as it was in the ole days. However, I stick with it because it's fun habit. Love the way Bill controlled the actors and if he saw that they weren't helping the ratings
out they went! Anyway, it is a great read for folks who Love Y&R and maybe for some who might be interested in watching and maybe learning about some of the characters and how it all got started. 5 stars for me!
