Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“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, New York Times bestselling author
“A great read…Almost as good as my memoir.” Carrie Fisher, New York Times bestselling author
“Hilariously vivid.” People
“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
