Rainn Wilson is an awesome narrator. You will get the most out of this book by listening to him read it rather than reading it yourself.
I enjoyed Wilson's prose and storytelling. Likewise, he has a unique way of defining spirituality and happiness that is beautiful and understandable--not creepy or weird at all.
I did find a few parts of the book to be somewhat tedious, but overall it's very well written.
As a side note, this book has absolutely nothing to do with the bassoon besides a few funny quips. If you're also a bassoon player like me, let's face it, you're probably going to get this book for Christmas. Luckily, it's worth reading, although Wilson's unfortunate bassoon experience doesn't accurately reflect the joy that I encounter daily from my bassoon students. I suppose any publicity is good publicity, right?

I admit to being a reader and not a TV watcher. I did not have a clue about Rainn Wilson. The reviews were good so I decided to give this book a listen. I am now a big fan of Mr Wilson. Wise, intelligent, spiritual, caring, interesting, very handsome ( I am sure) and of course sooooo very funny. I might even have to hunt down some of the Office series to see what I missed.

If you're interested in actor biogs, this won't disappoint as there's plenty of stuff about his career and, in particular. 'The Office'. However, there are a couple of chapters you might want to skip where he talks about his faith. In brief, he can't imagine the Big Bang so there must be a god!
The final chapter tells you all about the Baha'i faith.
Some of the stuff written as Dwight misfires slightly but there isn't that much of it and he's an excellent reader.
I enjoyed this book in audiobook format when I walked with the pram. I downloaded it because I LOVE the office and wanted to know more about Rainn's life. What a story he has to tell. This is an amazing book and the fact the audio book was read by the man himself made it all the more enjoyable. There is a lot of humour in the book but also a lot of thought provoking stories. 100% worth the 5 stars I've given it and I'd recommend it to anyone.
