I have to say, this is an amazingly powerful book. I suffer from OCD myself, and it seems that all these self-help books just don't get it. This isn't in any way a self-help book, but for those needing to know someone out there gets it, he does. It's so isolating and depressing to have to deal with, and the fear is unbearable. Howie talks about his battle, and I have to admit, it really hit home. I realized someone gets it., someone gets my struggle and my fears. I wish we could've delved a bit deeper into that side, but honestly, I'm not surprised it didn't. He talks about his debilitating ADHD, which I'm sure was part of why the book didn't delve deeper. I'm sure it was hard enough talking about his struggles and life, but that being said, it's still a fantastic read. I laughed pretty hard at parts (won't spoil those for those who've not read it yet,) but I will say I may have gotten a few looks reading it in the breakroom at work. Don't hesitate to read this. You really won't regret it.

I have loved Howie's comedy for years. I have viewed many of his standup and cried i was laughing so hard.

In this book, you get to see a side of him that is deeply private and really powerful. The sandflies freaked me the hell out and I am not a "germaphobe."

This book made me tear up for another reason though. Was it funny? Very much so. But that is not it at all. It takes a powerfully brave man to lay it all out on the table like this. It reminds me of another hero of mine, Robin Williams, what a sad trick of fate that the people who make us laugh so very hard are so very troubled when they are off the stage. This is the reason I cry now.

Howie, we love you. Thank you for making us laugh and here's the deal: I won't touch you!

This was such a fun read. At times poignant as Howie Mandell walks you through his life and his perspective on his various issues. I felt sad for him at times and many others I was truly laughing out loud - which he would have loved since often this was sitting alone in the middle of a restaurant. Awkward is his stock in trade and certainly felt that at times.

This is not a joke book, but it is very funny. This is not a how to handle OCD, ADHD, etc book - but he does tackle these from his point of view.

If you enjoy watching Howie, you will enjoy this read. It is as if he were sitting on a talk show couch and someone is transcribing his words. Feels like a conversation that he has invited us to join.

I knew who Howie Mandela was, but I didn't. This revealing autobiography puts a New light on just how eccentric his life really is. The chapter about his practical jokes was embarrassing to read and I wasn't even there. He has such a tilted view on life that I am amazed he is so successful at it. He is obviously amazed that he actually wrote a book and I am amazed that it had been proofread. Good story.

I was reading the book and just happened to get to the part about your afib...the night before my husband's cardiac ablation was scheduled. This has been a long journey for us - 18 months of medications, 3 cardioversions...and finally, FINALLY, we were going to check into the hospital for the ablation at 6 the next morning, which meant a 4am wakeup. Here I am, reading in bed at midnight, to take my mind off the possible things that could go wrong. I didn't know whether to laugh or cry, so I did a little of both and went to sleep.

I bought this used book after watching a taping of "America's Got Talent" where Mandel is one of the judges. Parts of the book are laugh-out-loud funny; others are sad. It's great that Mandel is being upfront about obsessive-compulsive disorder and other disorders. All the more interesting because he grew up during a time of huge stigmas about mental illness and treatment. I am also happy that his parents, who could have criticized and discouraged their son when he was a kid, teen and young adult, instead encouraged him and were enthusiastic about his efforts.

This well-written a book gets you inside the mind of a man who lacks impulse control, is a germaphobe, is ADHD, and is a goofball you’re sure to love. The book predates his stint as a judge on “America Has Talent,” but it covers a good deal about his rise to fame. A good read.
I thoroughly enjoyed this autobiography by Howie Mandel. In this funny memoir, Howie bravely explains his longtime struggles with OCD and fear of germs as well as heart problems he had for a while. This book has lots of humorous stories mixed with personal stories about his person life and career thru 2009. I give it two thumbs way up!
