Overview

"Who the hell is Pete Siegel?"

Pete is a self-proclaimed entrepreneurial underachiever and all-around average guy who, in either an act of sheer bravery, or complete stupidity, has attempted to share the joys and humilities he has experienced in his never-ending struggle to reach the age of 37. He is not a hero; in fact, nothing could be further from the truth. He does not have an Oscar or a Grammy, and at the time of printing, there had been no sign of the Publisher's Clearing House van carrying his one million dollar grand prize check. He could be the guy sitting next to you on the plane, painstakingly crafting a hand puppet out of the vomit bag, desperately trying to silence the screams of the children kicking the seat behind him, or the one before you in the Starbucks line, impatiently awaiting his second overpriced caffeinated beverage of the day. In his own words, he tells us, "The pages ahead are a scrapbook of stories and experiences, each with their own lessons that have, in some way, shaped my life. Some of you will laugh, some will cry, and some will put this book right back on the shelf. But let me ask you this simple question. If you had a chance to look into your neighbor's house and catch a glimpse of their life as if it were the latest reality TV show, would you? For those of you that answered yes, here's your chance to peek through the open blinds and into the life of a complete stranger."

So, "Who the hell is Pete Siegel?"

"To be perfectly honest with you," Pete reflects, "I ask myself that question all the time; and trust me, there are moments I don't know how to answer."

Most often quite funny and at times poignant I really enjoyed this book. My room-mate on my trip asked me more than once, 'Is that book really that funny?' when I'd laugh while reading it and I'm sure the guy on the plane next to me thought I was weird but I just couldn't help myself. I had the pleasure of meeting Pete recently.... this book is true to him. Great job Pete! I'm sure you dad loved it!
