This 'book' is downright awful. I read the book looking to learn about Drew's experience over the years - instead you get his non-stop whining about everything in life. He keeps talking about how he passed over using a ghostwriter - and it shows. The quality of writing is crummy. The book bounces around with no direction whatsoever. Even the revelation of him having gone through sexual abuse as a child is treated like an unnecessary diversions from the plethora of boring cliched and tired comedic bits strewn around the book. The only saving grace were the jokes at the beginning of each chapter - and Drew had nothing to do with those.

If you want to read a book that was written by someone going through adolescence, this would be it. Otherwise, there are far better books by other comedians (George Carlin, Gene Wilder, etc)

If you're a fan of The Drew Carey Show, then you will love this book. Consider it a kind of extension of the show, only better, because in print, he isn't limited by censors. By his own admission, the book covers ground that he couldn't even begin to touch on air. This book is highly recommended for anyone who wants to know what the show really should have been like.

This book is great! Drew Carey's views on life express what we all think. From front to back this book is the one for you! It comes with jokes, stories of Drew's life, about his show, his teenager-hood, and even some pictures of Drew when he was little. If you like comedey and don't mind bad language, buy this book!

This is a collection of dirty jokes, short fiction and autobiographical tidbits will please some readers and offend most others. Drew Carey, a stand-up comic and star of his own TV show, writes mostly about sex, drinking, gambling, football and television. Four-letter words dominate this book, giving the book a definite adolescent, male tone. Carey makes note that the more offensive his material, the more popular he became. He also includes a sample of the negative reviews and letters he has received. Overall, this book has a very limited appeal and I don't recommend it.

I thought the book was great.. It was his first book and I thought it was pretty funny.. You should not expect this to be a piece of great literature but it is GREAT for what it is.. a comedian's life told by the comedian. I will buy another book written by Mr. Carey if he chooses to write one.

Hands down, this is the funniest book I ever read. Carey has mixed jokes, personal stories, fiction and fact to form this unique book. The stories at the end of the book made me laugh for hours.
