“A must read! Joey Pants gives us insights so valuable that one can only call his courage to share a blessing for all.”
Richard M. Lerner, Ph.D., Bergstrom Chair in Applied Developmental Science; Director, Institute for Applied Research in Youth Development, Tufts University
“With honesty, humor, and integrity, Joey Pantoliano uses his life story to inspire hope that each of us can thrive despite emotional challenges and family turmoil. Joey’s story exemplifies the fundamental human capacities for resilience and positive growth.”
Joe Pantoliano was born in Hoboken, New Jersey. He has more than one hundred movie, TV, and stage credits, and won an Emmy Award for his work on The Sopranos. His first book, Who’s Sorry Now? The True Story of a Stand-up Guy, was a New York Times bestseller. Pantoliano is also the founder of No Kidding, Me Too!, a nonprofit organization “whose purpose is to remove the stigma attached to ‘brain dis-ease’ through education and the breaking down of societal barriers.” He produced and directed the documentary No Kidding! Me 2!, an intimate look at the experiences of Americans living with mental illness. He lives in Connecticut.
I found I was laughing out loud while reading this book.
A great deal of the book is concerned with Joe's struggle with clinical depression, ADHD and dyslexia, which is described in an open, relateable manner.
Coming from a family who suffers from just about every BD you can imagine, I was glad to see someone of Joe's stature take a stand!
I found this story to be interesting. Mr. Pantoliano lives in the same town I used to work as a home improvement contractor before leaving the state. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Tom
