I loved noticing how God has sovereignly kept this brother alive. I so hope it's because you are destined to come to know Him personally and find forgiveness, that's why you have been given so many exceptional chances... Chapter 9 is extremely poignant when you awake from suicide attempt to find a woman proclaiming Gods word to you...
I don't know why I'm writing this as though Artie will read it lol, but I have such hope for his soul!
Amazing book. Not as good is his 2nd crash and burn. Really a must listen if you enjoyed this.
My only complaint is that artie did not read the Audio all himself and it changed, really would have been so much better all him.. But after reading crash and burn I realise he didn't have much free time during the recording due to other bad habits!
I work. I ski. I play. I write. I have a family. I garden. I coach. I volunteer. I sketch. I run. I read.
Constant. Train. Wreck.
Artie is my favorite character. It's an autobiography.
I wish that he would have finished reading the entire book himself.
his dad's death
I got through it pretty quickly. I needed some popular culture after listening to Einstein's biography.
Yes, each story gets better and better when you listen to it again.
The stories of his father can make anyone cry. The stories of his drug induced shenanigans can make you laugh til you cry.
Yes I woud. It shows how one man can have such demons and overcome them and turn around
Maybe if I was drunk or stoned I would have laughed at his disgusting stories.
was not consistant
Don't waist your time
Seems a bit exagerrated
I enjoyed all the stories, but most were told on the Stern show
Only if you dont know the stories from the Stern Show
I Love Artie Lange!!!
i was really surpised how close artie was to his dad
artie of course
how he told his story
some parts funny and some parts very sad
i will recommend this book to others
Been listening to Artie on the Howard Stern show for years. Couldn't wait for his book. Artie hit a homerun...a great book, funny, sad, and very moving. Sorry to hear about his terrible suicide attempt, but if you listen or read his book you can see how he struggles with his career, drugs, and his fathers sad accident and death. Good luck Artie...hope 2011 is a better year for you.
It may have been better to hear the entire book in Artie's voice only because it is his book, but it is great to hear his friends from the show do some of the reading. It is a great book, an amazing story that I enjoyed listening to just as much as I enjoyed reading. I don't think that you need to be a fan of Artie or of the Howard Stern show to enjoy this reading of a great book. It does make you understand Artie's tendency to have a heart of gold causing him to help anyone that he can whenever he can.
