Loved it.

I’ve loved Steve’s standup for some time now, and really enjoyed this book about his youth.
I purchased the physical copy months ago after a show, but never had the time to read it, so I decided to get it through audible and let Steve read it to me. I think it was even better coming from him.

Best book I've read all year

As the title suggests, this books was amazing. I grew up in a similar environment, and the way Steve presented his childhood resonated deeply for me. It was funny in a way only he can be. Thanks Steve!

Friends Reminiscing

This is so relatable. Everyone has had these kind of interactions in high school. Steve has such a wonderful way of telling his life and experiences that make you feel like this whole book has been just the two of you having a great conversation about childhood.

A great listen on a long drive.

A great book with a very personal touch. The author reads his words as if you are sitting next to him and he is telling you a personal story.

I loved this book and can NOT wait for the sequel.

The book was wonderful and the author made me feel as though I was having coffee with an old friend. I hope there is a part two.
