Publisher's Summary

The long-awaited memoir from a counterculture legend.

Cheech Marin came of age at an interesting time in America and became a self-made counterculture legend with his other half, Tommy Chong. This insightful memoir delves into how Cheech dodged the draft, formed one of the most successful comedy duos of all time, became the face of the recreational drug movement with the film Up in Smoke, forged a successful solo career with roles in The Lion King and, more recently, Jane the Virgin, and became the owner of the most renowned collection of Chicano art in the world.

Written in Cheech's uniquely hilarious voice, this memoir will take you to new highs.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    "Super interesting guy! Charming, grateful, driven."

    So mucg to learn about thw life of Cheech Marin! I saw Cheech speak live at an LA Library book event to launch this book in Feb 2017.
    In person, he's hilarious, charming, gracious, a great story - teller & performer.

    I bought the audio book that ni.
    I was a little surprised & disappointed re-reading many of Cheech's great stories he'd told on stage that night in the audiobook, just without all the personality & enthusiasm.

    It doesn't make sense since he's such a great actor, performer, improvise, comedian & voice over artist.

    But while his life stories are still interesting, it's not nearly as lively & great as having seen him in person.

    A great read tho!

    Ok it is a positive and even inspirational about hard work and always learning

    Drugs were not glorified which I appreciate

    Be careful where you listen to it as you will laugh and laugh out load!

    "Remarkable Life Story"

    This is a a rags to riches story. Cheech's success resulted from talent, hard work, and support from people with power and prestige who believed in him.

    "Truly a fascinating man."

    Mr. Marin is much more than meets the eye. He shares his life story with passion and humor. He has had a diverse and fruitful career. Moreover it is his personal growth that is so inspirational. He takes life as it comes to him and makes the most of it: an example for each of us. He truly is a poster child for what hard work, perseverance and dreams can accomplish. He truly loves family and others who come into his life. However, his most admirable quality his his humility and profound appreciation for his gifts and all the blessings that have been bestowed on him. I thoroughly enjoy his book.
