American on Purpose, The Improbable Adventures of an Unlikely Patriot by Craig Ferguson
Yes, that Craig Ferguson.
I’m not a huge fan of his. I liked him in The Drew Carey Show and he was an interesting actor in a few films and sitcoms. But I do like him on The Late Late Show. One episode really got to me, the one where he talks from the heart about why he became an American citizen. It is on YouTube in 4 or 5 parts – go Google it!!
I bought this book because I respected the guy and I wanted to see what his story was.
Its an interesting story about a Scottish lad who actually didn’t have it so tough, turned to comedy and mad a go of it. The real story is in how he made it despite of himself. Drugs, women and kilts.
Oh, and did I mention that he is an alcoholic? And was serious about committing suicide at least one time?
An interesting guy, an interesting book and definitely worth a read.
