Born Standing Up: A Comic's Life - Steve Martin This is a quick read. It's engaging in a gentle, conversational way. It is not a celebrity tell-all.

It's interesting to read about the origins of various bits that became part of his comedy routine, and fascinating to learn about the arc of his show business career. He comes across as private, thoughtful, and very serious about his work. I appreciated the introspection and lack of name-dropping, but would have enjoyed reading about more of the joy/glee - it's there, but doesn't form a big part of this story.
