"Hard to imagine anyone not loving this... go Simon Amstell!" * Stephen Fry *
"Disarmingly, almost alarmingly, honest. I laughed out loud 57 times" * Martin Freeman *

"Enrapturing. Touching, funny and sweet" * Alain de Botton *
"Puts the fun in 'insanely honest introspection fun'" * Adam Buxton *
"A brilliantly funny, sad, clever, silly book. I loved it!" * Matt Lucas *
"Amstell is a likable, self-deprecating guide to his own flaws, and has spent enough time in therapy to dissect his own navel-gazing with a nicely dry self-awareness" -- Stephanie Merritt * Observer *
"Hilarious and heart-breaking... Simon's unique take on the world is a reminder of the absurdity of life and the humour that can be found even in its darkest moments. Genuinely life-affirming, moving and profoundly funny" * Attitude *
"Compulsively, excruciatingly honest... An heroically spiky, self-excavating read about family, fame, sex and self-discovery" -- Alice Jones * i *
