This book is a fantastic odyssey through a life that created a funny comedian and a great man. Reading about Matty’s life made me laugh and empathize with his tragedies and achievements. Sometimes I couldn’t help but laugh at the humorous ways he wrote about heartbreaking events and at the same time marvel at his courage to not break.
The writing is great and filled with uninhibited emotion. There moments that made me laugh, parts that made my heart ache at undeserved pain, and paragraphs that had my eyes begin to well and then put a huge smile on my face.
This is a great tale of survival, perseverance, and most importantly about following a dream-not because following a dream will lead to fame and fortune, but because the journey that dream takes you on makes you a better person and gives you unbelievable experiences. Matty’s writing puts you on his shoulders and as a reader experience an extraordinary life.
A Very funny and moving book.
The best thing is that if your life is lacking anecdotes of loneliness, romance, struggle and triumph, and social awkwardness, steal them from Matty Goldberg and his book Brain Humor.
