Summary

Hi! I'm Seth! I was asked to describe my book, Yearbook, for the inside cover flap (which is a gross phrase) and for websites like this one, so...here it goes! 

Yearbook is a collection of true stories that I desperately hope are just funny at worst, and life-changingly amazing at best. (I understand that it's likely the former, which is a fancy 'book' way of saying 'the first one'.) 

I asked lots of people to help me read the book including my mom and wife, and together we talk about grandparents, doing stand-up comedy as a teenager, bar mitzvahs and Jewish summer camp, and tell way more stories about doing drugs than my mother would like. I also talk about some of my adventures in Los Angeles and surely say things about other famous people that will create a wildly awkward conversation for me at a party one day.

I hope you enjoy the book should you buy it, and if you don't enjoy it, I'm sorry. If you ever see me on the street and explain the situation, I'll do my best to make it up to you.

Incredible insight

I thouroughly enjoyed listening to this book on my drive to London and in my hotel. It gave a very true insight into some controversial subjects and situations. I applaud Seth for his honesty and causing me to laugh frequently! Being an actor/ writer myself, having to compromise what I write to please others and ruin the integrity of my story is a subject I enjoyed listening to in this book! I would recommend this audiobook to everyone from all walks of life. P.s. I loved the stories told from other narrators and the sound effects!

F*** Yeah!

I love Seth's voice so the audio version of his book was a must and I wasn't disappointed.

It's a funny listen with the bonus of many other voices of people he mentions adding to the hilarity of the various situations Seth has found himself in.

There is a lot of drug use described but if you know anything about the author, this really shouldn't surprise you. Same goes for the language used, which is wonderfully colourful.

Would definitely recommend this book and I, for one, listen to it again and again.

The best audiobook I ever listened to!

I was scrolling through Audible, trying to find an interesting book to listen to and although I don't know much about Seth Rogen nor am I a huge fan of his work, Yearbook caught my eye. Firstly because of the great design of the front page, then with a list of big names such as Jason Alexandar and Snoop Dog who are reading it. I decided to give it a go and I was not disappointed.

I want to point out straight away that this audiobook is the best-produced audiobook I've ever listened to. With the majority of audiobooks I listened to you have a narrator reading you a book. This wasn't that. This was a radio drama with so many different voices acting their part, music, sound effects... Simply brilliant! This is by far my favorite audiobook ever.

When it comes to the story, there are great moments and some flaws. Seth is very amusing and funny. I laughed out loud multiple times throughout the book. He tells stories about his childhood, growing up, and time in Hollywood in a very entertaining way. He also has no problem critiquing himself or others.
I do wish there was a bit more connection from one story to the other and some chronological order. He goes back and forth and sometimes there's a bit of a disconnect. Some of the characters could also have a bit more depth to them.

All in all, the best audiobook I ever listened to. Very entertaining, extremely well-produced, great storytelling, fun!

Fantastic

I loved this book!! It’s great to hear it performed bij mr. Rogen. It is very, very funny. In the same time it points out that the author is a very decent guy in a very human way, normalizing a lot of teenage angst at appearing happenstance and pointing out stupid stuff that happens, done or said. Highly recommended!

Once all the drug references are passed…

Once all the drugs references are passed the stories told are really interesting and funny. Seth narrating the book is brilliant and I have grown to really like him after this book (not that I didn’t before, it’s just I didn’t know much about him)

No pickle here!

What a great autobiography/collection of essays by Seth Rogen!
Funny, with a great cast of actor friends helming this 5-ish hour ride along with Rogen himself.

If only all autobiography...

...got as close to doing its job properly as this one. Imagine!? You get some insight to someone, how they are who they are, where they’ve been in their lives, their points of view, their honesty, strength, frailty, confoundedness in the face of ignorance and some horrific realities (vile and blatant antisemitism) All set in these current times where dignity has often been traded for mammon. I liked Seth. Now I really like him and look forward to what I hope will be for him a long fruitful time in and out of the public eye. And his next piece of writing. He can write. He should do a bunch of essays on themes close to his heart or themes that hurt his heart. If he can make time. Of course.

Exactly what you imagine

This is a great book if you like Seth Rogen!

If you don’t, this is a completely useless purchase for you.
