Book Overview

Lost in love and don't know much? Paul Feig knew even less... Like any other red-blooded, straight young man, Paul Feig spent much of his teenage years trying to solve the mystery of women. Unlike most red-blooded, straight teenage boys, however, Paul Feig was sadly at a considerable disadvantage. He was tall and gangly. He had a love for musical theater. And, perhaps the death knell for his burgeoning sex life, Paul was a tap dance student. (And...

Absolutely Hilarious...

I just finished reading the book and I truly loved it. The author has chosen to share some of his most embarassing adolescent moments in the book and for this I am grateful. I don't think that I have laughed so much in such a long time. I am very much looking forward to reading the author's other book "Kick Me", I am hopeful that it will be just as enjoyable.

lost in love and don't know how much?

As any other hot-blooded American, Paul Feig spent much of his teenage years trying to solve the enigma that are women. Paul's disadvantage was his gangly height, love for musical theater and the death blow- being a tap-dance student (see cover). This memoir is infused with the same wit and humor that brought his first book, Kick-Me, to life. Anecdotes include: his fest date' to an REO Speedwagon concert; how he accomplishes his first break-up, by cross country move; Feig's hilarious journal entries, complete with present day foot notes, many of which have him strangling and slapping the young Feig; his practice of a self love technique that almost landed him in the hospital; and the voice of God, asking "you're not really going to do that, are you?" whenever he thinks of doing anything sexual. Paul Feig will remind anyone who's ever been there of the humiliation and degradation that is being a teenage dork. If you were, are or are turning into a geek, read this and learn from Feig's follies before you fall into any of the same traps.

Sad...real..wonderful

Paul Feig is awesome...his TV show was awesome, his first good was quite good, but this book, oh this one is fantastic. It is so incredibly honest (and a bit uncomfortable) that he wins your heart. FOr anyone who has had the least bit of trouble with the opposite sex, parts of this book will ring true. It works so well because it is so focused. You can't help but laugh and perhaps even be a little touched. I will read or watch anything he does. Way to go Mr. Feig.

I Have Never Laughed So Hard in My Life

The creator of the brilliant series "Freaks and Geeks" really comes alive on paper. His stories about his youth are just plain fun. "Super Stud" is a laugh-out-loud book about his young life in pursuit of a sex life (and multiple failures to land bragging rights to one). The material is anecdotal and full of great humor and humanized stories we can all relate to. I also recommend: "My Fractured Life", "My Horizontal Life", and "A Long Way Down."

Insert Witty Title Here

When the dedication page of a book makes you laugh, you can assume one of two things: 1) either this is as good as it's going to get, or 2) this book is going to be outrageously funny. Fortunately, it's option #2. I generally take awhile to get through a book, generally taking several months to several years. But this was a book I bought from the day it was released, and finished it in less than a week. Not only was this book fun to read, it made me cringe in places, and often mull over my own life. Paul Feig's life certainly put things in perspective of my own (whether for good or bad). For all of the detail and writing that he spent on describing his past relationships, when Judgment Day finally came, it almost felt like that the author was just trying to finish off the book. Or maybe I am just waiting for the 2nd part of this story to read how everything ended up in life, between his old friends, his wife, his current life, etc. But perhaps, he might even create a more comprehensive autobiography someday to continue from the time of the early 80s, to his (varying) successes as a writer of various entertainment mediums.
