Book Overview

An engaging no-holds-barred memoir that reveals Howie Mandel's ongoing struggle with OCD and ADHD-and how it has shaped his lifeHowie Mandel is one of the most recognizable names in entertainment.

Awesome book! Extremely funny. The book was so good that I finished it in 2 days. I laughed out loud many times while reading it. The only negative thing I have to say about it is that it bounces around in time too much (not in chronilogical order). That kind of annoyed me and made it a bit hard to follow.

great reading

This book was one of the most enjoyable autobiographies that I have read. The only fault with it is that it is a fast read and I would like having 200 more pages of it to enjoy. He writes from the heart and you can really feel for him and his family. I actually laughed so hard I cried in parts. I hope he will be able to control his ADHD long enough to write another book because I would truly love to continue his stories.

Honest and entertaining

I've always been a fan of Howie Mandel's comedy and was surprised to find that I like his serious, (game show host) side just as much. Deal or No Deal is one of my favorite shows! Howie's life, as so honestly shared in this memoir, is proof that when we remain true to ourselves and our passion, success is likely to follow. I applaud Howie for revealing some embarrassing moments when his impulses got the best of him, and also for respecting the privacy of his children by NOT revealing many details about their own lives.

Well worth a read

Howie Mandel has written a gift of a book!! Its funny, yes. But its more than funny, its sad, maddening, frustrating because he writes about the hell he went thru as a child, into his adult years and how utterly scary it can be to be around germs and other peoples residue. And not only is he OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) but he had ADHD which would be hard enough on its own. He writes of how his humor has been a wonderful tool. He writes lovingly of how his personal issues have effected his wife and three children. Am buying extra copies for a few friends.

Touched my funnybone

Howie Mandel (that's one "l" not two,) has been one of the funniest comedians to come around in over two decades. In this personal biography, Mandel entails his funniest moments throughout his professional, as well as his personal life. Mandel struggles on a daily basis with his diagnosed "OCD" and "HDHD," but he has the unique ability to find humor in the very uncomfortable situations that only he can. Halfway through the book, the reader feels as though he knows Mandel on a personal level. The stories that he relates as a young man trying to find himself are both sincere and gut wrenchingly hysterical. The man sure knows how to spin a yarn, and we the reader are fortunate for it. The book chronicles his career from being a young boy, until being a huge commercial success with the popular game show "Deal or no Deal," and his hidden camera show, "Howie Do It." If you don't laugh out loud reading this memoir, then you do not know what funny is.
