nonfiction/memoir (actor Rainn Wilson best known from "The Office")
not as funny as other comedic writers (the middle section was a little dry, a little bit droning on and on, so my easily distractable mind would frequently zone out), but he has some interesting stories from his unconventional childhood and also spends some time expounding on what he's doing with Soul Pancake (digital entertainment company that gave Kid President a TV show), as well as important social issues in Haiti, etc. He also talks about spirituality for quite a while (his own journey from his parents' B'Hai faith to his own understanding of the world), but it doesn't come off as too preachy--he's just offering his thoughts for consideration.

As a longtime fan of The Office (and I still need to finish, but guys, Season 8 was ROUGH), I enjoy hearing the stories that have been trickling in. Last month, my husband and I took a roadtrip and started this audiobook. And now, over Spring Break, we finished!

This is an interesting book with insights, thoughts on faith, and, yes, dish on The Office. I highly recommend the audio version. Wilson is an excellent and hilarious narrator. ( )

This is a fairly well-written memoir, but it seemed rather hard to read from time to time. While he does have self-deprecating humor, he does also attack other people, for instance his mention of Mindy Kaling in this book felt particularly harsh. However, all in all it had good stories and lessons that teach perseverance can lead to you following your dreams. ( )

He's a good writer. Unlike many comedians and actors, his writing is funny as well. The first 75% was interesting. The last part, which focused on the development of the Soul Pancake "brand", read more like an infomercial. ( )
