Praise for Rob Delaney
"Hilarious, raw."-Rolling Stone
"Unlike some books by comics, [Rob] Delaney's volume offers a rich, deeply considered (and yes, funny) look at his life, from jumping off a bridge to crashing a car while drunk to getting and staying sober while other friends died trying. A great read by any standard, but even more so for including stories about needing (and failing) to find a bathroom while jogging."-E! Online
"One of the most hilarious bundles of words we have ever read."-Vice
"A book as funny, sincere, weird, wet, and wonderful as Rob Delaney himself."-Jimmy Kimmel
"Heart-wrenchingly true tales exuding self-effacing whimsy and smart-guy charm . . . There are plenty of books by male comedians about being drunk and stupid and depressed and getting out of the hole they dug for themselves, but this book feels like you are reading the account told by a grownup who actually learned something about himself worthy enough to share in book form."-Splitsider
