I loved every word of this book. I have always been a fan of Norm McDonald's and his trademark humor comes across in every aspect of the book. Can't wait for him to write another one.

Funniest book since Chris Elliott's, "The Shroud of the Thwacker." This is not Norm's memoir. However, it is told in Norm's voice and I've physically restrained myself from laughter every few pages so as not to wake wifey sleeping next to me. Great stuff.

Lots of fun and full of goodies- just don't read too fast I can understand the other reviewer saying "good but weird". It's not really a memoir- there's plenty of fiction, and the style is not what you're used to - in any book that I've read at least. But it is good. Real Good. The author recounts his life story in a unique style, and since he's a talented comedian, he does so in the most funny way ever. The book is just hilarious. But it's more than that. There are insights through out, thoughts, and truth. A lot of truth. It's a mix of everything- just like life. It's a roller coaster, and somehow it works. Amazingly well. Come with an open mind, and let it work it's magic - doubt you'll be disappointed.
