I came from the same streets, and have had very similar experiences. This book is Honest, and tells a tale of what it takes to truly succeed is hard work, making sure you're in the right place at the right time, not being afraid to look like a fool, and the guts to try anything!
A great book-it is possible to make it even under the worst situations. Well written and I enjoyed his own narration. Hope to see other books on audio.
Listened to this right after watching his stand up show Wee Bit of Revolution. I enjoyed that it was Craig narrating and hearing the more serious parts of his life. Giant fan of his humor!
a great funny guy tells mundane details of his life that are really irrelvant to most unless you are an alcholic or recovering
A great listen from beginning to end. He doesn't leave out the ugly stuff. Since "reading" the book I have become a fan of his show.
I really enjoyed this book. The fact that it's narrated by Mr. Ferguson in his wonderful Scottish accent makes it that much more enjoyable to listen to. It's always uplifting to read a biography of someone who turned his life around and became successful. He shows us his human failings and his emergence from the depths of addiction without becoming preachy or judgmental. It comes across as an honest story, and told with his comedic wit it makes a great read.
Yes -- this was a really funny story told by a funny person and interestingly enough I even think some nice little life lessons thrown in. It was great and I will have it on the iPod/Pad/thingy to listen to again on another long trip
Too many to name
No he was new to me but now I will seek him out.
He tells his story without leaving anything out. Interesting, sad, happy and funny. I was already hooked on Craig Ferguson before I read this. In the book he bares his soul.
Good read not too long.
Being of Scottish extraction and a proud American citizen I looked forward to a story about a fellow Scot that discovered his dreams in this country. The book was rated so high I thought it would be a funny book because I found itin the comedy category. The author spent the first part of the book on an ill informerd liberal rant about President Bush and Vice President Cheney. He did not argue against their policies just made fun of how they talked and how they were related to the devil. Not real funny. If I wanted this drivel I would have bought the crap from John Stewart or Bill Mahar. (Upon looking further Audible considers their book as comedies too...) The author should have gone to France if he wanted the socialist crap that he apparently missing.
Does not matter
Was mis-catalogued. This was not a comedy.
I like Craig Ferguson a lot and I did love that he read the book. I just didn't think his life, life lessons etc were very remarkable. Sorry Craig.
