Publisher's Summary

This program is read by the author.

"You're Doing Great! is your no-nonsense go-to collection of essays to get you through the increasing noise and chatter of self-doubt and confusion in the new millennium. Tom Papa is a funny, empathetic guide and your new best friend." (Patton Oswalt)

"Read it. Listen to it. Whatever, do what you want. According to Tom you're doing great." (Whitney Cummings)

Comedian and Live from Here head writer Tom Papa, author of Your Dad Stole My Rake, tackles the modern condition in a heartwarming group of short essays.

Tom Papa is a little worried about you. You seem stressed, overworked, and, frankly, a little mixed up. 

Everyone is fighting an overwhelming feeling that things are getting worse, that we should be doing more, that we're not good enough. Well, life isn't perfect. There have always been problems, and there always will be. You can fight for the things you believe in, you can work really, really hard, but you shouldn't lose track of the fact that while you're doing all that, life is flying by at lightning-fast speed. 

If you actually take a breath and look around, you'll realize you're actually doing great. Here's the thing: We live in an amazing time filled with airplanes, scooters, and peanut butter cups. We have air conditioning, blenders, and martini shakers. It's time to refocus, enjoy it all, and stop waiting for something better! 

Relax with comedian and Live from Here writer and performer Tom Papa as he explores his favorite subjects in 75 essays, including:

  • "You Don't Have to Live Your Best Life"
  • "Don't Open the Mail"
  • "I'm So Baked"
  • "I Love Your Love Handles"
  • "Don't Go Tubing"
  • "Shut Up and Eat"

Recalibrate, turn off your device, and open your eyes to a better reality: You're doing great!

Laughing While Walking Makes the Neighbors Think You're Crazy

I love to read and never thought I would enjoy listening to books. I was wrong. Listened on my walks and while doing chores around the house. I'm sure the neighbors are probably wondering what I was smiling or chuckling about. I think the fact that it was read by Tom Papa made it even better. I really appreciated the bright spot during COVID. I'm doing great!

It's just OK...

If you watched his most recent Netflix show with the same title, it's the same as this but longer and not as funny.

I will keep this book forever

I love Tom Papa! This book is a wonderful read, easy to listen to and so relatable. The stories are the bread of the book and his voice is the butter.. or cheese.. which ever you prefer.

A really good listen...,

I found it hard not to laugh out loud at work while I was listening. I think everyone who has ever had a crappy day, month or year should listen. I enjoyed every minute of it, even when he made me cry.
