This is the story of the relationship of Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman, two brilliant actors and comedians starring in television shows such as Parks and Recreation and Will and Grace and I do not say this often, this was the most BRILLIANT biography I have ever read not only in my career as a Librarian but in my entire life. First of all, I loved how the book was written with each of them speaking their mind allowing the reader to see their true personalities, like we were their friends having a casual conversation. Megan's personality definitely shined through telling us stories of her personal life and what went on behind the scenes at Will and Grace. Nick really shined describing what it was like being a carpenter to an actor having a key role on Parks and Recreation making America fall in love with him as Ron Swanson. This book was so addicting that I could not stop reading it and now I get it why they recommend to be well fed and hydrated before you read this book because you won't be able to stop jumping up and down screaming YES! while you read the book! I wish I could give this infinity stars but we can only give it 5 stars! #greatestlovestoryevertold #netgalley

I love Nick Offerman and his work so much. I was fortunate enough to go see him on tour last December and I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so hard. This book is almost as magical as seeing him onstage. The banter between him and his wife is lewd, playful and all around hilarious. It was nice to see more of her than just that girl from Will and Grace or one of the Tammy’s from Parks and Rec. I’d recommend this to anyone looking for a good laugh and a little bit of actual relationship advice. *Thank you to Netgalley for this review copy. All opinions are my own*

I had heard that the audiobook version of this one was amazing, so I decided to give it a whirl, and it DID NOT disappoint! This really is no surprise because listening to Megan and Nick tell their own story in their own hilarious, sarcastic, off the cuff way was so much fun. I honestly love both of them as actors in their own right (and I love Megan's band) so I wasn't wildly surprised that I loved listening to this book. It is like having a beer with a good friend and hearing stories of their lives. It's a blast. It lets you fall a little more in love with them. It 100% demonstrates how crazy they are about one another. And it confirms just now normal the two of them really are, despite Hollywood. There isn't much more to say for this one, other than, grab a copy of this and get ready to super enjoy a book. And I'll pass along the advice given to me - this one on audio is EPIC.

I was expecting a very funny read but it was very disappointing. It turned out to be a bit boring. I wish I could take it back.

You certainly have to be a big fan of both of them to get a kick out of it, and I don't know how many friends I'd consider getting this for but I found this to be an entertaining read.

A festival of ignorance! How many rational, valid life choices did YOU make when you were 9 years old? After lengthy rambling in vague, undefined terms, about their childhoods and entry into their professions, these two launch into a celebration of bigotry. It seems, that age 9, Megan realized that she is evolved beyond the rest of humanity, and dismissed her mother's faith and ALL faith. Until she gets to the part where she describes, in detail, what she was thinking at her Baptism...when she was 18 weeks old. That's right! She claims to remember having chosen, at 4 months of age, to cry during her Baptism because she was offended by the appearance of the priest and his admonition to not cry. Nick, on the other hand, details his complete lack of the ability to consider major life issues from a position of a logical and educated adult by bragging about how he rejected his parent's faith as a teen because he didn't like how the congregation recited the Nicene creed. She tells him she is going to withhold sex because he can name the sacraments. That little exercise...and, if you love being lectured on a subject by a speaker who knows nothing about his given subject, this is for you...allows the two of them to spew hate towards not only Catholics, but all Christians. They summarize by saying their parents are the "right" kind of Catholics...they never talk about their faith or do anything that would let anyone know what they believe. That's the point at which I closed the book. Thank God, literally, I got it from the library and didn't pay for this . If bigotry, banality, and self-congratulatory stupidity are your "favorites", order this book NOW.
