Editorial Reviews

Review

"[Sonnenfeld's] moments of self-effacement...make him an ideal tour guide through the vagaries and hypocrisies of the entertainment industry.... He catalogs his own anxieties at length, sometimes to exorcise them and sometimes to fetishize them.... It is thrilling to ride shotgun."―David Itzkoff, The New York Times


"If I went to prison, and I saw that Barry Sonnenfeld was going to be my cellmate, I would think, 'Oh, this will be a breeze.'"―Jerry Seinfeld

"Barry Sonnenfeld's new book is all the feels. Can't recommend it enough.....He's... an absolutely remarkable storyteller."―Neil Patrick Harris


"Writing a book this sharp, [Sonnenfeld is] puncturing the myth of the Director as God....A wild account of his life and times....Here we have not only a new entrant in the movie-director memoir genre but an even rarer beast: a book by someone in the entertainment industry who is neither self-aggrandizing nor self-important but uniquely, and painfully, candid."―The Wall Street Journal


"Hilarious."―Ryan Seacrest, "Live with Kelly and Ryan"

"Barry's memoir is amazingly honest and brazenly hilarious. Now excuse me, I need to take a shower and try to get some of those images out of my head."―Cheryl Hines

"Sonnenfeld's autobiography is laced with funny, sometimes absurd, moments.―WBUR

"Anyone who has encountered Barry for any length of time has wondered how he came to be the way he is. The answer is hilariously, poignantly, and forthrightly told through various stories that resulted in me feeling nauseous, laughing out loud, blushing, and repeatedly saying under my breath, 'Oh my God, Barry.' Sometimes all of those things at once."―Allison Williams

"Barry Sonnenfeld's memoir is not unlike many of his films. It's an incredible story about an unlikely hero. There is action, adventure, comedy, horror-and just a little bit of porn."―Kelly Ripa


"Hilarious, full of heart, and there are no typos."
Max Greenfield
