This is an excellent auto biography penned completely by the author himself. Many Hollywood stars use ghost writers but Craig Ferguson does not. It is a pleasure to listen to Craig, with his scotish accent, tell the tale of his upbringing, turbulent years and eventual success in Hollywood. The audible boook allows use to literally hear his pain, struggle, humor and love throught this journey. His story keeps the reader enthralled and wanting more. I have listened to this from start to finish twice and I know I will listen to it many more times. Thank you to Mr. Ferguson to allow us to take a peak into your amazing, terrifing and triumphant life journey.

I first bought this book because I liked Craig on the Late Late Show. I didn't realize it was quite the interested tale of his life. I don't usually like stories of recovering (fill-in-the-blank-aholics). But Craig's is a very engaging and unabashedly frank telling of how he became and is to this day, a person who "screwed" up in many of the ways life doesn't forgive and yet lived to tell about it. His genuinely talented comedic mind takes you on a journey to understanding how he became the man so many of us enjoy laughing with. Welcome to America Craig. We need more people like you who have reccaptured yourself and can share so openly and elequently your heart-felt apologies, your wit and your perspective on what it means to be American.

I was not sure what to expect from this book since I had not seen Craig on UK TV for a while. I thought this book was very funny and honest, definitely the best book I've listened to so far.
It was great to hear all his stories in and around Glasgow close to where I was born and live. I think this made the book even more enjoyable.
Craig is probably the only person who should read this book and does a great job at doing so.
I would highly recommend this book.

A great story with many of life's lessons proven and dis-proven. A view of a parallel life in time and ultimate triumph and success over personal adversity.

Craig perfectly explains in great detail, his upbringing, trials, tribulations and determination to make it in America. This is an incredibly heartfelt and humorous memoir. It pulls at your heartstrings and can make you laugh in hysterics all in one sentence. Craig is a great manipulator of the English language, part of why I've been a fan for seven years. I highly recommend American On Purpose.
