My brother gave this to me for my birthday a few years ago, because I'm such a fan of Freaks & Geeks which was co-created by this author. Grabbed it off the shelf at random the other night to have something to read in the tub. Was a relatively quick read -- all personal recollections of the type of thing that seems monumentally horrendous at the time and only with the eye of distance and maturity can become funny.

Don't know if it was a generational thing (he's about 10 or so years older than I), or a gender thing - it was funny enough and enjoyable, but as far as self-depricating memoirs go, I prefer Laurie Notaro. That said, ending the book (which detailed his dating ineptitudes and guilt about sex due to his Christian Scientist upbrining) by writing about losing his virginity in the form of a Bible chapter was an inspired bit of irony.

I've heard this isn't quite as good as "Kick Me," which is also on my list, so I've got hopes for that one, too.
