    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.

    Story
    Would you listen to American on Purpose again? Why?

    Craig's voice and friendly, chatty manner invite a re-listen, yes, definitely.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Hearing Craig read it himself. Only he didn't read it so much as just tell his story, as if he had never rehearsed a word, it was fresh and funny.


    What does Craig Ferguson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The accent (obviously!), a deeper connection between the man and his beautifully honest, humble rise to fame. There is more to him than the guy at the desk on the Late Late Show, for sure, here he goes into personal territory and it's not always for laughs. It gives such deep meaning to his "It's a great day for America" slogan. He means it with all his heart and now you know why.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed constantly, and sympathized quite often.
