Comedian Jimmie Walker reflects on his life and career in new book

"Good Times" was one of the most popular sitcoms of the 1970s, running from 1974 to 1979.

It was a groundbreaking show about a struggling, poor African-American family living in a Chicago housing project.

In it's first full season, it was the seventh highest rated program, reaching an estimated 17 million households across the United States.

Comedian Jimmie Walker helped launch the show into television history with his catch-phrase "dynomite," one of the most famous of all time.

On Starting Point this morning, Walker discusses his career and his new book "Dyn-O-Mite: Good Times, Bad Times, Our Times."
