At 24, Sebastian Maniscalco arrived in LA with a suitcase and saved up minimum wages. He knew no one and nothing about standup comedy, but he was determined to go for it anyway. At 44, he's on the Forbes' list of highest earning comedians, sells out arenas, and has starred in four hit comedy specials including Why Would You Do That? on Showtime. Stay Hungry tells the story of the 20 years in between.

Absolutely the best. Sebastian is hilarious so real and simply tells the story of being the perpetual outsider who NEVER gives up. His perseverance is so inspiring.

His Italian roots and essence brought me right back to my Jersey childhood and filled me with deep joy.

His love and closeness of family is so warming.

I listened non-stop. Just loved it. Can’t wait for his next one about being a father!!

If you care about social change but hate feel-good platitudes, Do It Anyway is the book for you. Courtney Martin's rich profiles of the new generation of activists dig deep, to ask the questions that really matter: How do you create a meaningful life? Can one person even begin to make a difference in our hugely complex, globalized world?

I chose this book bc I wanted to be inspired by real people who are dedicated to creating meaningful lives for themselves. I wanted to hear about act
