Yearbook Kindle Edition

Seth Rogen is one of Hollywood’s favorite funnymen, so naturally his book of essays is a hoot. He describes himself:

Yearbook is a collection of true stories that I desperately hope are just funny at worst, and life-changingly amazing at best. (I understand that it’s likely the former, which is a fancy ‘book’ way of saying ‘the first one.’) I talk about my grandparents, doing stand-up comedy as a teenager, bar mitzvahs, and Jewish summer camp, and tell way more stories about doing drugs than my mother would like. I also talk about some of my adventures in Los Angeles, and surely say things about other famous people that will create a wildly awkward conversation for me at a party one day.”

Buy now and you’ll save 82 percent and have a riot reading some of the best stories from a man whose life revolves around cracking people up.
