In his first book, actor and comedian (as well as host of The Best Damn Sports Show Ever) Arnold takes readers through the highs and lows of his life, all the while maintaining the breezy charm and guy's-guy persona that has served him well in his career. Framed as a series of responses to questions from his unborn child, Arnold examines his tumultuous childhood and adolescence in rural Iowa, his stand-up career, his stormy marriage to Roseanne, and his current happiness with his new wife and job. Arnold takes frequent potshots at himself (his weight is a frequent target) and is honest and forthcoming about his struggles with drugs and alcohol. Hollywood gossip fans will be pleased by the amount of salacious information Arnold offers about his relationship with Roseanne as well as the juicy backstage tidbits he includes from his showbiz career. Although this book might not win Arnold any new fans, the affable and self-deprecating tone will certainly satisfy his current following. Brendan Dowling

I find this book rather helpful. Tom is a Greek God, he helped me with my burning rash under my mantits.Published on June 14, 2005 by METHOS
I do agree with the previous reviewer that the book jumped all over the place - but you get the feeling that Tom is like that in real life. Read morePublished on February 23, 2003 by Barbara
If you are already a fan of Tom Arnold than you will really love this book. Many of the stories are either very funny, very sad, or exactly how I felt in similar situations. Read morePublished on December 19, 2002 by "beechdog"
I have no idea why but I've always liked Tom Arnold. Maybe it is the self-deprecating humor. Maybe it is his willingness to marry women who are far from the Hollywood ideal. Read morePublished on December 15, 2002
Tom Arnold is not only one of the best comedians around, but an amazing author. From the first chapter I knew I was not going to be able to put the book down. Read morePublished on December 1, 2002 by Phillip M George
