Who is Tracy Morgan? The wildly unpredictable funnyman who rocketed to fame on Saturday Night Live? The Emmy-nominated actor behind the sly and ingenious character Tracy Jordan on the award-winning hit sitcom 30 Rock, whose turbulent personal life often mirrors that of his fictional alter ego? Is he Chico Divine, the life of the party - any party, anytime, anywhere - getting ladies pregnant everywhere he goes? Or is he a soulful, tender family man who emerged from a hardscrabble ghetto upbringing and, against all odds, achieved superstardom, raised a solid family, prevailed over a collection of lethal bad habits, and is still ascending new heights and coming into his own?

The answer is: Tracy Morgan is all that. And a bag of potato chips with a 50-cent soda.

With brutal honesty and his trademark take-no-prisoners humor, Tracy tells the story of his rise to fame, with all its highs and its many lows - from the very public battles with alcohol and diabetes that threatened both his career and his life to the private and poignant end of his 20-year marriage. In his singularly warped and brilliant way, he muses on family, love, sex, race, politics, ambition, and what it takes to bring the funny.

    " The audiobook is "read" by him. It's very apparent that he isn't reading the book verbatim (I do believe he reads the introduction), but I think his personality shines when he's just speaking from the heart. I laughed out loud in a lot of this. But in length, it just wasn't enough. I'm contemplating actually reading the book, but I'm not sold on doing that, because what I love most about Tracy Morgan is the way he expresses himself. That's the reason why I waited for the audiobook rather than just reading the book itself. I'd recommend this to his fans because he delivers the comedy, even when he isn't trying. I also recommend the audiobook because it has original music from his father. I learned a lot about his life and what has shaped him as a man. If you're curious, pick up a copy. It's worth it. "

    " I am reading right now, having a hard time getting into the book. I am accustomed to hearing a comical Tracy Morgan. His book is kinda heavy. Keeping an open mind though. "

    " Alot has gone on in Tracy's life since this book was written in 2009, but still this book provided insight into this comedian's style and I was glad to check it out. "

    " Really brief, under 200 pages so you really get no dirt. Basically read the Wikipedia page. "
