    "A fun journey with Rob Delaney"
    Where does Rob Delaney rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was perhaps one of the most enjoyable audiobooks I've listened too in a long time. Rob narrating really adds to the story as well.

    Having been a fan of Rob's Twitter page, and then his stand-up, it's awesome to hear stories about the life experiences that give Rob's comedy its edge.

    It's a fun and funny listen, and I've recommended it to everyone I come in contact with.

    I hope Rob continues on his trajectory and keeps writing and performing. He is an inspiration.

    "I loved this book!!"
    What did you love best about Rob Delaney?

    This book was amazing! It made me actually laugh out loud and it made me cry; it completely drew me in and I was lost in his story. I listen to a ton of audiobooks and not only is Rob Delaney a fantastic writer, but he also is a great reader and I loved listening to his book. I crushed the book in one sitting because I literally couldn't put it down, or in this case, stop myself from listening to it. I highly recommend this book!

    Story
    "Completely gorgeous memoir"
    What made the experience of listening to Rob Delaney the most enjoyable?

    Rob Delaney is famous for sending offbeat messages to companies and corporations on Twitter. The man behind the page, though, has an incredible story. Having struggles of my own with addiction and depression, it was wonderful to hear him speak so candidly about his struggles and his process to find peace with himself.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Rob Delaney?

    Jumping off the Brooklyn Bridge - his storytelling ability is absolutely breathtaking.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    His honesty - it's just unbelievably refreshing.


    Any additional comments?

    I absolutely, completely loved this book. If you approach the book anticipating Rob's Twitter persona, you'll find some of it - but maybe not as much as you might expect. Trust that this is a good thing. He tells his story with as much comedy as appropriate - serious when he needs to be, then lightens things up again with some of his trademark comedy.

    "Inspiring Memoir - But Not a Joke Book"

    If you're one of the perverts who follow Rob on Twitter then definitely pickup this book to see what makes him tick (or cum). Just know this book is light on jokes (listen to his album if you want punchlines about pants-sauce). Rob's struggle with booze is moving and eye-opening about what's it like to crave substances.

    Story
    "Lucky to be alive"
    Any additional comments?

    I've listened to a lot of comedians' memoirs. They all serve up stories explaining childhood misdeeds, scars, relationships, regrets, and careers turns. In Rob Delaney's case, there quite a few stories that show he's lucky to be alive (and knows it). How enjoyable each memoir is depends on how much you like and relate to the stories and their teller. For me, this book is my favorite since Bossypants, both because I love Delaney's sense of humor and because I'm almost the same age, so I was delighted to hear a few random, quirky similarities in our experiences. I'm sure this book won't work for everyone, but I loved listening to his stories. I just wish it were longer.

    "Good story"

    Very interesting. Rob could have been a little more emotive. It was funny but not funny, since he had such a problem.

    it's kind of weird listening to a virgin/weed-head talk for so long, but it's enjoyable none the less

    "OMG SOOOO GOOOOD"

    Rob Delaney is simply wonderful. It almost doesn't matter what he's saying, since hearing his voice is entertaining enough, but my god. I promise that you won't be disappointed.

    Story
    "Acerbic - Sentimental - Cerebral"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Rob Delaney to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version, but as I listen, I love the sound of his voice as he's reliving all of the episodes in the book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It sucks you in from the beginning and keeps you enthralled straight through to the last word. I didn't want it to end. Compellingly and smartly told - sad, cerebral yet ultimately uplifting.


    Have you listened to any of Rob Delaney’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I will now.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I don't think the title should/could be added to.


    Any additional comments?

    For the millions out there who have been to those dark places, thanks for sharing and enlightening and giving a glimmer of hope.

    "Funny but also reflective"

    In addition to the humor and a nicely written personal story, Delaney shares about his battle with addiction in a helpful, reflective way that can help both addicts and those close to them on the sidelines.
