Publisher's Summary

A New York Times, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, and Publishers Weekly best seller!

If Eckhart Tolle and Jim Carrey had a baby, that baby would be Kyle Cease.

After 25 years of achieving what he thought were his dreams of being a headlining touring comedian and actor, Kyle Cease suddenly discovered that the belief that "when something happens, I will be happy" is a complete lie. With nothing more than an intuition, he decided to quit his stand-up career at its peak, and now - as a transformational comedian - he brings his one-of-a-kind self-help wisdom to sold-out audiences in his Evolving Out Loud Live stage show.

In I Hope I Screw This Up, he disarms listeners as he leads them to their own personal breakthroughs, helping them to recognize that actual happiness and fulfillment is available to them - not in some distant future, but right now. As he has shown audiences all over the world, when you embrace your pain, fear, and vulnerability instead of pushing it away, you will discover an authentic creativity and power that is truly unstoppable.

Using self-deprecating personal stories and hilarious observations on life, Kyle unravels the deepest issues standing between us and emotional freedom. From discovering the never-ending opportunities that come from playing - and going with whatever comes up in the moment - to learning to let go of what feels heavy in our lives, this book is a journey into the endless possibility that can appear if we just dare to let go of our fear of screwing up.

This is not motivation. This is not inspiration. This is true transformation.

Don't drink and listen or spit-takes will result

I'm listening to the foreword and love it already!!! I have read the hard copy of the book, and know it's awesome, but I have a feeling there are many delightful surprises tucked away in the audio version. Kyle is so damn funny and super insightful! I'll update this when I'm done, if that's possible, but get this book! Get it now!

Wanders, Hits A Truth, Then Wanders Again

I generally think comedians have genuine and hyper-intelligent observations that the rest of us can only appreciate, not demonstrate on our own. And such it is with Kyle Cease's I Hope I Screw This Up.
But that's the bad part, the part that keeps this from becoming a super tool for self-awareness and personal growth. There's plenty of good here but, just as Cease comes upon a truth, wham! He's off to the races on some humorous meanderings that keep you from being able to ingest what he has to offer. And there are plenty of poignant bits in this book that make that such a pity. He keeps saying things like: Back to the point, and: What I started out saying. How disappointing; how diverting.
I'd keep coming up on genuine connections then I'd be distracted by yes, quite chuckle-inducing bits. But I'm a Self-Development person and focus is key for true enlightenment. The guy can't help it that he's funny. But he could've made certain parts funny and certain parts serious rather than letting the book just wander.
Not a popular review, I know, but there you go. If humor is what you're looking for, with a few serious and enlightening bits, this book is for you. If you're looking for a true tool for self-development, you might be a tad exasperated as the digressions are all over the place. I applaud his intention, but I regret the execution: Good bits, wandering, more wandering, good bits, then wandering again and again.

I've been waiting to read this book since before it came out. loved every moment of the book. Had excellent exercises within that really get you thinking (I know you wanna skip over those, but don't. Just do them).

Was not expecting this!

I was not expecting this! The title caught my attention but within the first 5 minutes I was already a fan. I hope Kyle puts out more books as I would read them all. Made so many bookmarks that I'll have to go back and really dive in.

This Book is Truly Amazing. Buy It!

I am only on chapter sixteen, and I just felt drawn to review it early.

Kyle Cease has written a book that will speak to your heart, mind, and soul. His easy-going style and ability to simplify the seeker's journey creates a level of understanding that automatically opens the doors to One's Being or the Being of One. I was absorbed in this book in many different ways and you will be as well.

If it seems off or feels strange at the start, just keep listening. All of the ideas he presents in the first few chapters build and snowball into the kind of information that will melt you and your mind and you will come to an understanding that opens up into the complete picture of who, what and why we are, or life is.

I still have about a third of the book to listen to, and I love that. So much more to see.

Wow! I love you Kyle Cease.

Great and humorous book

Great book! Might need to read it three or 4 times and stop when told to stop and do when told to do. Life changing applications.
