You're going to take a healing journey, and it's going to be great! Unless it's a disaster...
From Stuart Smalley come guided visualizations that will take you to a safe and healing place...except for a few wrong turns along the way. (Stuart made a solemn vow not to edit anything he recorded because he is a perfectionist - that's his problem, but he's owning the problem, and that's okay - and he realized that if he started editing the tape he would never finish it.) So even if some of the parts aren't exactly what Stuart wanted (because human beings aren't perfect, and that's okay), sit back and take a journey down the River of Life and into the Dysfunctional Forest - a dark and scary place where you'll meet Grandiose Bear, Overcommitted Opossum, Sex-aholic Squirrel, and a beautiful little child...a child who looks a lot like you...
Plus, you'll hear Stuart's calming visualizations for such stressful times as traffic jams and holidays. So close your eyes. Relax. You're in good hands.

Stuart Smalley is a caring nurturer, a member of several 12-step programs, but not a licensed therapist.
Al Franken wants everyone to know that he really created Stuart and played him on Saturday Night Live, and that he wrote and performed this program.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 6/21/2011

    " A friend and I were joking about Stuart Smalley's Daily Affirmations, so it occurred to me to look for this on audible. I enjoyed it, but then I've always enjoyed every single thing Al Franken has ever done. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wolfrom | 7/21/2010

    " So fantastic! Stuart is my hero... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linds | 2/13/2010

    " This book is funny but then it tries to be a serious book about alcoholism. It's a weird mix, but funny. Mostly. Sometimes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann | 1/4/2010

    " Gifted to me way back when by my now Republican-but-coming-back-somewhat-to-the-center brother. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heidi | 12/3/2009

    " This book did not require me to think at all. It was the perfect treat for this time in my life. Not for everybody, but there were parts of it that caught me off guard and really made me laugh. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 11/11/2009

    " This book gives me even more reason to love my new senator. It's funny, of course, but also touching. I this and the movie work much better than the sketch on SNL. You laugh at Stuart, but also see yourself in him. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaethe | 9/17/2009

    " I wasn't actually a fan of Franken's character on SNL, but I find his writing amusing. This is a little too much in character, it got old quick. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynda | 8/29/2009

    " Really hilarious. When I read this, I was heavily involved in the recovery movement. I did and still do daily readings. This book poked fun at all that without being mean or degrading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marla | 7/11/2009

    " Love it! I loved Stuart Smalley on Saturday Night Live. I've read it a few times and I think it's time to read it once more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pat | 11/5/2008

    " Stuart Smalley has the answers to life--if you're willing to laugh and change the way you see it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rivkah | 7/8/2008

    " I read this because my sister bought it for me for $2 on clearance. It is rather entertaining...a great bathroom read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 3/9/2008

    " Al Franken cracks me up. A self-help book by the one character who should not be trying to help anybody! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 3/9/2008

    " This book is good enough, smart enough and doggone it, I loved it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gillian | 2/29/2008

    " I loved this book. It was sweet and smart and made me laugh so much. It's even a great self-help book. Daily Affirmation: Next time I visit my family I will rent a car! A true learning tool. "
