Publisher's Summary

Live through the hardships: Life is complicated and messy, but every now and then, life gives you a syndicated talk show on a major network - and then fires you for being “all icing and no cake”. Then it sends your born-again Christian sister to take you out to lunch on your birthday, only to tell you she suddenly believes you can pray the gay away and that you should've used your time on the show you were just fired from to do more for Christ. Then, because there's always another “then”, you receive a tax bill from Uncle Sam that almost sends you out your 10th floor bathroom window...literally.  

Luckily, AJ Gibson chose to step back from that open window and share his struggles rather than succumb to them because, well...not today, Satan! He knows what it's like when life feels like a never-ending roller coaster, and in his self-help audiobook Flipping the Script, he doesn't sugarcoat the truth. After all, this isn't Hollywood, errr...anymore.  

Know you're not alone: AJ's journey from a closeted gay boy from Ohio to that guy people kind of, sort of recognize from TV and Hollywood's biggest red carpets seems glossy, but the truth is anything but. In Flipping the Script, AJ shows how his life has been a series of personal roadblocks and rock-bottom moments. Every time he thinks he's in the clear, he finds a new way to crash and burn. Let's just say insecurity was once a pretty close friend of his, so he knows what you feel like whenever you find yourself scrolling social media comparing yourself to others. Really, he does. Luckily, he's a pretty smart guy and moderately witty, always finding his way out of life's rock-bottom moments - and you can, too!  

Turn bad situations around: AJ has a gift for shifting his perspective, turning crappy situations around and finding a way to persevere each time the world seems to be telling him he was born to fail. Through all of the mess, all of the hardships, he somehow manages to keep a smile on his face and a roof over his head - even if he really has to stretch his dollar to do it. He also knows we all have problems we have to work through, and he's here to help. The true stories in Flipping the Script will make you laugh, encourage you to keep fighting for happiness, and inspire you to turn your own rock-bottom moments into your proudest accomplishments!  

Feel empowered: AJ's "Hollywood" situation may be unique, but his struggles are definitely relatable. After all, you'd be hard-pressed to find a person who has achieved success without problems - especially in the LGBTQ community. As a proud gay man working in the entertainment capital of the world, AJ's personal and professional stories will leave you feeling empowered and a little less defeated. Flipping the Script will give you the strength to overcome your own personal roadblocks and live the life you were created to live.

So Good

The story was super heartfelt and I love how he had "script rewrites" at the end.

I'm probably going to listen to it again.

All the emotions!

I don’t normally write reviews but I felt I had to for this book. I absolutely loved it! You find yourself connected and relating to AJ’s hardships and obstacles, as well as the happy times. I cried, giggled, had a few oh shit and WTF moments. Finished this in two days. It’s that good! I will have my oldest read or listen to this as I feel it will help him.
Thank you AJ!

A Book of Hope and Love

it's always great when the author of a work narrates his/her own book. and in this case, AJ really poured his soul. in so doing, he provides inspiration and practical tools to overcome life's harder moments, or rock bottom moments as he calls them. it's a very powerful and moving bool full of courage and wisdom. take a listen especially if you feel like you're struggling in your life.

AJ never disappoints!

I cannot say enough positive things about this book. AJ is one of the most charismatic people, who can captivate any audience. He does so in his writing and with his voice, bringing his true emotions to the stories he is telling. It was truly a pleasure reading along while listening to his in my headphones. Phenomenal!!!!

Thoughtful, Insightful & Funny!

As a gay male working in the TV industry myself, I can relate so much to what AJ has gone through. I appreciate his truth and vulnerability in this book as well as his sense of humor.

It was great to hear him narrate it. That personal touch made it feel like he was talking to me.
