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.

What a perfect beginning and ending to my day - I enjoy Mr. Ferguson's take on the world, his no-nonsense reaction to many of the frivolous parts of life, his common sense views and that Scottish accent! Everyone should listen to chapter 10 - The Helpers. Such a practical take on the politics and religion that currently divides the US. Please - more books from this wonderful author!

Tony and Emmy Award-winner Billy Crystal leads an all-star cast including Oscar winner Kevin Kline (President David Murray) and four-time Oscar nominee Annette Bening (First Lady Katherine Murray) in a performance of this hilarious and poignant story about a man desperately scrambling to put his affairs in order: to save his presidency, his marriage, his relationship with his daughter – and possibly his life.
