    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.

    "Excellent listening!"
    Overall

    Craig Ferguson is brilliant in many ways -- writing is just one of them. His memoir, "American on Purpose," is unapologetically honest, inspirational, chock full of unexpected wisdom and teeming with both humor and heart. This audiobook version, read by the author, really brings the book to life in a most enjoyable way. (No, it's not a laugh-a-minute, but neither is life. This is an autobiography, not a television show monologue.)

    For the politically-minded, there are a (very) few political thoughts and comments thrown in that not everyone is going to agree with. However, nothing is said/written that is overly vitriolic or hateful, and it in no way overwhelms or otherwise detracts from enjoying this book. It's just one guy expressing his opinion. Which, let's face it... the right to do that is part of the beauty of being an American, whether native born, or -- in Craig's case -- on purpose. Well done, Mr. Ferguson. Proud and pleased to have you as a citizen.
