    In American on Purpose, Craig Ferguson delivers a moving and achingly funny memoir of living the American dream as he journeys from the mean streets of Glasgow, Scotland, to the comedic promised land of Hollywood. Along the way he stumbles through several attempts to make his mark - as a punk rock musician, a construction worker, a bouncer, and, tragically, a modern dancer.

    What disappointed you about American on Purpose?

    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.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Craig Ferguson again?

    Never


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Craig Ferguson?

    Does not matter


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Was mis-catalogued. This was not a comedy.
