From the comedian, actor, and former host of The Late Late Show comes an irreverent, lyrical memoir in essays featuring his signature wit. In the audiobook, there are some stories that are too graphic for television, too politically incorrect for social media, or too meditative for a stand-up comedy performance. Craig discusses his deep love for his native Scotland, examines his profound psychic change brought on by fatherhood, and looks at aging and mortality with a perspective that he was incapable of as a younger man.

This book made me laugh and cry. It is completely honest, raw, and filled with gems of wisdom and cleverness. Hearing from Ferguson himself was also a fantastic plus. It made me wish o get to meet him one day. Give this a try. You will not be disappointed.
