I picked this book up only because I recognized the author as Jeff from Community, and was I ever not disappointed. This is one of the only books I've ever read that had me laughing out loud (to which I received many awkward stares on public transit). Written as a farcical memoir/self-help, this book "exposes" much of Hollywood through clever and witty satire. Whether you're a fan of Community or not, I definitely recommend this. Don't skip the footnotes.

I was on vacation in the US approx. 12yrs ago when I first discovered Joel McHale on The Soup. At the time, I thought The Soup was hilarious - it was new and fresh, and satisfying to hear someone tease celebrities and the new world of reality TV. Since then, I have always noticed McHale in acting role, and found his humor genuinely funny, which is why I decided to pick up this book. I was curious - would the book be funny? What kind of childhood created this dry, sarcastic man? The book reads fast, and has plenty of interesting personal stories and celebrity gossip. The latter half of the book is a bit forced, perhaps for length, but still worth the continued attention.
