Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Former Tonight Show with Jay Leno intern Ross Matthews offers this hilarious account of his rise to success and stardom. With his trademark high-pitched voice and girlish laugh, Matthews is on fire from start to finish in this inspired reading that covers everything from anecdotes about growing up in smalltown U.S.A. to the author's early days in Hollywood. Matthews's passion and drive are present in his enthusiastic delivery—which may cause some listeners to turn the volume down a notch. The narrator's giddiness and excitement about where he's come from, how he got there, and where he intends to go are contagious. A Grand Central hardcover. (May) --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

From start to finish, I could NOT put this book down! Ross Mathews has always been a source of inspiration for me but after reading this book I learned something. I love him even more. His Superhero voice leaps from the pages as he tell his most intimate secrets. If laughter is the best medicine then give me a dose of Man Up. Ross knocks it out of the park and beyond with this firt of what I hope to be many more tales of small town pride and determination to make it a world where the odds are not always stacked in a persons favor. It's a must read for anyone who has looked at themselves and didn't like something they saw, (or heard). So, I guess it's a must read for all of us.

As soon as I heard Ross Mathews was coming out with his first book, I knew I had to have it. The genuine, kind, and effervescent onscreen personality that radiates from the television is prevalent throughout this collection of stories and events in his life. It is a fun, quick read that will have you smiling and laughing aloud to yourself, causing others around you to wonder what could possibly be so amusing. You will find Ross' signature style of humor and wit in this book, along with some truly touching moments - from his coming out to his closest friend and parents, to the times he spent as a child with his father. I enjoyed this book more than the couple I've read by Chelsea, just because it made me feel happy as I read it. Kind of like how I always like Chelsea Lately a little more when Ross is the host! But I digress. If you like Ross Mathews, then you will not be disappointed with this book :)

I have loved Ross Mathews since I first saw his segments as Ross the Intern on The Tonight Show. I have loved following his career and watching him on Chelsea Lately. He is so funny and so is this book. He is what every woman would want in a best friend. He grew up with a loving and supportive family and I think that made the difference of how his life could have turned out. He just seems like a genuinely nice guy. I loved the quiz in the back. I only missed the superhero question. The last chapter had me in tears. His mother gave the best quote from the book. Ross asked her 'What advice would you offer the parent of a gay child?' and her response 'I'd tell parents this: your job is to protect, support, and love your children no matter what, so just keep doing your job.' That made the book worth reading right there.

Loved the book, and plan to gift to a friend with a young son who is coming out. And Ross's mom Gaye - you are a hero and role model for moms everywhere. Happy Moms Day!

Inspiring, hilarious, and (of course) fabulous. Ross Mathews will be your new best friend, or at least you'll pretend he is. Great read.
