Publisher's Summary

From actor and comedian Joel McHale comes the most important celebrity-penned book of this - or any - generation: Thanks for the Money: How to Use My Life Story to Become the Best Joel McHale You Can Be.
Part shocking tell-all memoir, part aspirational how-to guide, and mostly all book, this one-of-a-kind tome is required listening for anyone who enjoys Hollywood gossip and get-rich-gradually tips.
Joel McHale pulls back the curtain on his personal journey to stardom! Here, for the first time, Joel reveals all that has molded him into the acclaimed comic actor he is today: a love of performance, a series of boyhood head injuries, and, most importantly, a passion for financial compensation and free shoes.
It's all here: Joel's career trials and tribulations, his criminal trials and tribulations, and an honest, unflinching list of all the people he's been paid money to make out with on camera.
But the book does not stop there! Because if you want wealth, fame, and cost-free footwear, Joel will share every vital tip he has learned: an insanely low-carb diet plan, how to escape from a certain pseudoreligious celebrity cult, and more!
How can you unlock the power of the Joel McHale who lurks inside? What happened when Joel fought his Community costar Chevy Chase? And hey, while we're at it, what's up with Joel's hair - really? All will be revealed within the minutes of Thanks for the Money.
Buy now, and receive - as a special bonus - an email receipt that details your purchase!

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

No Real Focus.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Yes, I would have it be more about his life and not so all over the place.

Has Thanks for the Money turned you off from other books in this genre?


Which scene was your favorite?

When his brother fell out of the bed.

Could you see Thanks for the Money being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?


Any additional comments?

The book does not know what it wants to be. A joke book, a biography or a "How To" spoof. It's needs to pick one and stick with it. I like Joel and think he will go down as one of the funniest guys around, but this book is just to out there and hard to pay attention to because he has no real flow.

I found myself drifting in and out of thought and not really hearing the book, It just does not grab you like a book should and keep you interested. You will find you have drifted off into making a shopping list or what needs to be done in the garage this weekend. Not good!

If you like Joel McHale...

If you enjoyed the kinds of jokes made on the Soup about celebrities being vain and Joel McHale being a smug alcoholic, you will enjoy this. Listening to him read the book enhanced the experience.
