Reviews

"A fine writer, witty, reflective, and candid.... Ferguson is a kinetic cutup teeming with foolishness, brilliance, defiance, and heart. All this is captured in his book as an entertaining connect-the-dots journey." -- Associated Press "Hilariously vivid." -- People "Funny and poignant and inspirational and brilliant. Nowhere in his story of emigration and redemption does Craig Ferguson realize that as lucky as he thinks he is to be `American on Purpose,' we are luckier still to have him." -- Keith Olbermann "With American on Purpose, Craig Ferguson somehow manages to avoid the pitfalls of self-indulgence and self-importance that plague most (okay, all) Hollywood autobiographies. He has, instead, written a book that is hilarious and irrepressibly daft, yet also kind, poignant, and undeniably wise. It was a joy to read." -- Dennis Lehane, author of The Given Day "A great read . . . almost as good as my memoir." -- Carrie Fisher, author of Wishful Drinking "Ferguson has given us a biographical treatment that is both brutally honest and inspirational...American on Purpose is a book that should be read." -- Chicago Sun-Times "Hilarious and revealing...witty and emotional." -- The Daily Beast
