Reviews

"Brave, fast-moving, 4 stars"
-People

"It digs beneath the buffoonish exterior and uncovers a complex human being . . . The Chris Farley we meet here is both funnier and more lovable than the typical celebrity drug casualty, which makes The Chris Farley Show both sadder and more frustrating than the typical just-say-no cautionary tale."
-The New York Times Book Review

"What you'll love: the book's intimate accounts give as much time to Farley's sensitive nature and generosity of spirit as they do to his ugliest moments."
-The Washington Post

"Farley has no shortage of support and admirers . . . the compilation of direct quotes from his loved ones makes for powerful reading and provides a more forceful reminder of how terrifying addiction can be."
-Playboy
