I've always been a fan of Michael Ian Black, ever since I first discovered him as a member of the hilarious comedy trio "Stella". I expected this book to be very shticky, over-the-top, and silly; much like his comedy -- and it definitely has these elements. However it's also brutally honest and a gives you look into his personal life and marriage. I was not expecting such honesty and openness, but I loved his stories/advice and found it all fascinating.
Michael gives a great read/performance, and this book definitely has some solid laugh out loud moments (for me atleast). Highly recommend this book. And if you like this book you should check out his podcast "Mike and Tom Eat Snacks".
The book title seems to indicate that it's only for creative types -- I would disagree. Anyone who is passionate about their work, or is trying to find how/what to be passionate about in their life can take away some valuable lessons from this book. If you suffer from procrastination, or lack the passion to finish projects -- this book is the kick in the butt you may very well need. It's a short read/listen, but it's well worth it; I would recommend multiple reads to keep yourself inspired.
