About the Author

Senator Al Franken graduated from Harvard College. Before running for office, Al spent 37 years as a comedy writer, author, and radio talk show host, and has taken part in seven USO tours, visiting our troops overseas in Bosnia, Kosovo, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Kuwait. Al was first elected to the United States Senate in 2008 and re-elected (by a much larger margin) in 2014. He and his wife, Franni, have been married for 40 years, many of them happy. They have two children and two grandchildren, with a third on the way.

Reviews

"With this book, Franken is both resistance leader and family counselor...A hilarious guide to what happens when a comedian runs for Congress."--The Nation "A fun and compelling book. [Franken] uses self-deprecating humor to poke fun at everyone on either side of the aisle, and he gives readers insight into the daily workings of life in the Senate. His love of the people and the state of Minnesota is crystal clear."--Jeff Ayers, AP "In a breezy, funny, biting, and often earnest read, Franken pulls off what many of his congressional colleagues have failed to do: write...an interesting and honest memoir."--Sam Brodey, MinnPost.com "[AL FRANKEN, GIANT OF THE SENATE] may...be the funniest memoir by a sitting - standing, recumbent, squatting - U.S. senator. Scratch that 'may.' It surely is. This is a genuinely funny book, often hilarious...the Senate, and the country, would be the poorer without him. He's an American original."--Christopher Buckley, The Washington Post "This is a great book about politics. No joke...Compulsively readable [with] laugh-out-loud lines in every chapter."--Booklist Starred Review "In this excellent, insightful memoir, comedian turned senator Franken recalls his unlikely path to public service...Franken is quite a raconteur, and he tells the story of his remarkable life and times with a sense of humor that is always irreverent and often self-deprecating."--Publishers Weekly p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 15.0px Tahoma; color: #212121; -webkit-text-stroke: #212121} span.s1 {font-kerning: none} "With this book, Franken is both resistance leader and family counselor...A hilarious guide to what happens when a comedian runs for Congress."--The Nation p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 16.0px Calibri; color: #101010; -webkit-text-stroke: #101010} span.s1 {font-kerning: none} "A fun and compelling book.

No joke...Compulsively readable [with] laugh-out-loud lines in every chapter."--Booklist Starred Review "In this excellent, insightf ul memoir, comedian turned senator Franken recalls his unlikely path to public service...Franken is quite a raconteur, and he tells the story of his remarkable life and times with a sense of humor that is always irreverent and often self-deprecating."--Publishers Weekly
