"Wright. Ringling. Jonas. I'm sure you could name a bunch of famous brother teams. They're all garbage compared to Mark and Jay. I can't wait for you to read this book."--from the foreword by Mindy Kaling "A likable memoir of how Jay and Mark Duplass blazed their idiosyncratic trail, and an inspiring how-to guide."--The New York Times Book Review "The book is a collection of diverse pieces that fit together to reveal the puzzle of [the Duplass brothers'] lives. There's part of it that's very practical. . . . But another big piece of the book is the chapters that explore their unusually close relationship. . . . Both parts of Like Brothers make for a fascinating read."--Orange County Register "Like Brothers is more encompassing than most moviemaking memoirs. . . . [It] isn't just worthwhile for fans of the Duplass Brothers; this autobiography is a fascinating look at the art of sneaking into the industry through the back door . . . [and] just how they pulled it off."--Moviemaker "A frank, intimate, hilarious account of their creative success and personal bond."--Entertainment Weekly "Mark and Jay Duplass are not just brothers, kind of like their book is not just a memoir. . . . The book playfully darts between essays, pop-culture tributes and self-help tips. . . . What sets Like Brothers apart . . . is the uncanny bond between its authors. . . . Like Brothers is ultimately a fascinating window into the creative process, showing the complexities that come with being so inextricably linked."--USA Today "Equal parts touching memoir and rallying cry, the book is a candid and often unapologetically emotional survival guide for aspiring artists."--Vulture "Like Brothers is . . . a surprisingly practical road map to a rewarding creative partnership. . . . Like Brothers is as openhearted and lovably offbeat as Mark and Jay themselves."--Broadway World "As creative partners, we sure learned a thing or two from Mark and Jay Duplass's journey through the Hollywood machine. Like Brothers is an essential guide for making space for yourself in a world that doesn't always encourage individuality and innovation. As useful to an aspiring filmmaker as it is to a pair of siblings wondering 'How do we turn our connection into something great?, ' this book will be essential on your shelf."--Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner "The Duplass Brothers have a genius for conveying deep feeling without ever straying into sentimentality. Here they capture the often wonderful and occasionally terrible business of collaborating professionally with someone you love."--John Green and Hank Green "As a writing team and directing team, we love seeing two people who are more intelligent and articulate than us explore the dynamic that we don't have the depth or self-reflectiveness to explore ourselves!"--Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg "In my next life I'd like to come back as a Duplass Brother. But until then I'll just enjoy their hilarious, insightful book."--Judd Apatow
