Hi. In your hands, right now, you hold the culmination of thousands of years of human intelligence, ingenuity, and brilliance. Now put your goddamn phone down and pay attention to my book.

What is in my book, you ask? (I'm really glad you asked, by the way, because now I get to tell you.)

Time travel. Gay marriage. Sportsballing. Futuristic goggles that DO NOTHING.

Tiny brags from my publisher, stuff like: "This is an uproarious, uncensored take on empathy, personal responsibility, and what it means to be human."

Excessive brags about myself: "An extraordinarily clever, punishingly funny, sharp-tongued blogosphere star, NFL player, husband and father, one-time violin prodigy, voracious lifetime reader, obsessive gamer, and fearless champion of personal freedom."

Oh, and also an essay on the Pope's Twitter account. Honestly, if that doesn't draw you in, there's no hope left for humanity. I also give my own funeral eulogy, in case you were hoping I'd go away and die now!

So please, join me in the glorious art of windmill tilting by reading this "collection of rousing, uncensored personal essays, letters, and stories" (I have no idea why that's in quotes).

Join the herd of Beautifully Unique Sparkleponies.

(You know you want to.)

It's not often you can pick up an author and say, "I agree with every opinion he shares." Kluwe does an excellent job of reminding us all that we're all in this together, for better or worse (with just the right amount of colorful language to keep you laughing). Kluwe for world leader!

I have to give this 5 stars, I rave about it, send copies quotes and chapters to friends and even bought a copy as a give for someone. I loved reading what Kluwe said. I was great to be in his mind and see how he thinks. The book gave me a lot to think about as i laughed, pouted and screamed along with him. I am so happy I picked up this book.
