Craig Ferguson's writing is a treat.
M. Palmer
It's kind of slow to start but it's a great read and I have a lot of respect for him writing about himself.

Terribly honest. Not sure how Ferguson is still alive, but his story is incredibly entertaining. The last page should be required reading for every American.

Craig Ferguson's writing is a treat. Clear, clever, funny, imaginative, observant. Honest about the lights and darks of his life without moaning or sensationalizing them.

Loved his novel "Between the Bridge and the River," too. I hope he continues to write!

Just a howlingly good and honest book by Craig showing how terrible and necessary it is to grow up in the world and conquer all of your demons at the same time. Highly recommended reading since it is honest and tongue in cheek at the same time.

This book is about how Craig Ferguson became who he is today. He talks about his childhood, parents, drug addiction, failed marriages, and then how he turned it all around.

If you like the man read it. It's kind of slow to start but it's a great read and I have a lot of respect for him writing about himself. It really gives you insight on why he's the way he is.

Craig Ferguson is by far my favorite comedian. He is brutally honest about his battles with drugs and alcohol. He makes you laugh and also think about how lucky we are to live in this great country. His love for American shines through like a bright beacon. If you are a fan or not, you will enjoy this book.
