Thanks for the Money: How to Use My Life Story to Become the Best Joel McHale You Can Be

We rated this book:

$27.00

Joel McHale is not so much an actor/host as more of a sarcasm-spewing mandroid that remains oddly likable even as he tears down everything around him with witty barbs and razor-sharp timing. So, naturally, his autobiography is more than just a chronicle of his many, many, MANY achievements…It’s also a self-help guide to mold yourself into a reasonably successful Joel McHale facsimile.

Thanks for the Money is compulsively readable, demanding your attention at every turn, and it’s great fun all the way through. McHale is almost Dave Barry-like with his use of footnotes, and the many tangents and digressions (including cameos from his wife as she corrects his memory) are hilarious. And, of course, every page practically drips with the world-class snark that made E! Network worry that he would piss off those Kardashian kash kows.

And yet, amid all the humor and hyperbole, you really do get the sense that he’s immensely grateful for the opportunities he’s had and the life he’s found, in both family and career. Thanks for the Money is the best of both worlds.
