Steve Guttenberg may have been "the last guy you would pick to be a movie star," as a casting agent once referred to him, but book editor Peter Joseph jumped at the chance to help Guttenberg tell the story of his life. Joseph, an editor at Thomas Dunne Books, has worked on a variety of celebrity and political memoirs in addition to The Guttenberg Bible, including books by William Shatner and former senator Arlen Specter. The Brooklyn resident is also author of the forthcoming Boozy Brunch, a guide to cocktails and daytime drinking coming out in September.
