    Charles Martinet, the man whose voice will forever be associated with plumbing, multi-billion dollar video game franchises and "Mama Mia!", is writing an autobiography. In the autobiography, Martinet will talk about what it feels like to be the guy behind "woohooo!" Martinet is aiming the book at a 2008 release, and hopes to talk about a view of Nintendo from the inside. The main thing inspiring Martinet to writing this book is the feedback he gets for his voice talents. And really, if someone said you were the "the voice of my childhood", wouldn't you want to live up to that?

    I will buy this for sure. Will fit perfectly besides the autobiography of the guy that made the tire sounds for Super Mario Kart.

    Everyone knows that Mario is a multi-billion dollar franchise...but what the point of writing a biography on how this guy came up with....I don't really care because the Mario Games are good and I don't really need to know about this guys life...I don't really like to read either...:nutkick:
