really liked it
Read from October 29 to November 01, 2011

I liked on Craig Ferguson's Late Late Show and Drew Carey, so hearing his story was a real treat. He is just as funny as an author as he is in person. He has that ability to be authentic while being light hearted. I love his take on "Choosing Adventure" and the analogy he uses about being born Scottish, but choosing to become an American. I think this is probably true for most immigrants.
