I had a really hard time getting through the first part of this book but I can never not finish a book I've started, so I did. When I picked up this book I thought the title meant this would be a comedic autobiography, and that the author would use being a pretentious a** as a way to make fun of himself - but the truth is that he really was just that and not much else. Which i's a shame because when he's not full of himself, he really is a great writer. The second half of the book really demonstrated what he's capable of, but unfortunately for me by that point I was just trying to get done with it so I could move on.
