American on Purpose: The Improbable Adventures of an Unlikely Patriot by Craig Ferguson

No doubt about it: Craig Ferguson has had a tumultuous life, persevering through hardscrabble beginnings in a gloomy Scottish town, stints as an alcoholic punk-rock drummer and stand-up comedian, three marriages, and a failed suicide attempt. Fortunately, for him and for his audience, he survived, moved to Los Angeles and became known as a top-notch talk show host and one of the funniest people on television. Although his book incorporates the “rags to riches” theme common to celebrity bios, his is not the typical “Hollywood” memoir. Ferguson’s no-nonsense Scottish background combined with the optimistic embrace of his newly adopted country (he became a naturalized American citizen in 2008) make for a unique and engaging read.  Click the book cover to request this book now!
