    Hooray for whoever put this out in Book/Audio form! I had heard some of the individual entries, but it is truly exciting to see these short essays put together in one piece. There are wonderful glimpses of the individuals featured here. It's inspiring and encouraging to hear these short philosophies of famous and not-so-famous people.
    This is something different and fascinating. Easy listening in the best possible way!

    "Not very engaging"

    Overall

    Albeit the cover and the audio sample were intriguing, the lecture was not. There was about thirty minutes of lecture and then student questions. The topic was interesting, but the presentation was superficial and minimal.

    Marc Maron began his standup career as a contemporary of the late Sam Kinison, and though he’s toured extensively, recorded comedy CDs, appeared on talk shows dozens of times and held prominent jobs in media, personal problems including addiction laid Maron low by 2005. At his nadir, Maron began recording conversations with his friends and fellow comedians for a podcast called “WTF,” which today stands as a cornerstone of the medium. The underdog success of “WTF” sparked a career renaissance for Maron, who has since starred in his own show on the Independent Film Channel and written a book, titled Attempting Normal.
