Publisher's Summary

Jake Sasseville may be the most famous guy you've never heard of.
Slightly Famous charts Jake's improbable rise to (slight) fame. At 21, he broke into Hollywood as the youngest host ever on late-night broadcast TV when his show The Edge launched after Jimmy Kimmel Live! on ABC affiliates. Months later, it crashed, burned, and Jake lost it all.
Experience success from the inside of failure, as Jake shares his ridiculous tactics to win million-dollar deals, find out why Chelsea Handler hates his guts, why he wears pajamas to business meetings and how he turned his business (and his life) around after becoming a "has been" at age 22.
In this deliciously absurd collection that is as hilarious as it is raw, Jake brings you inside the life of a Hollywood outsider. When he launches high-profile PR stunts, he enlists his famous friends like Rainn Wilson (The Office) to help. When his business nearly goes bankrupt, a chance meeting with a billionaire in London leads to $100,000 and a flight to a private island compound.
Whether he's negotiating with AirTran Airways to give him an unlimited supply of first-class airline tickets or convincing the CEO of a hotel empire in San Francisco to give him a penthouse suite for a year, Jake's colorful life makes way for pearls of wisdom on life, business, and spirituality.
