What I’m about to declare could be debatable: I know how to read.
Now, just because I know how to read, doesn’t mean I do it often. Not by a long shot. When I manage to peel my face off of my laptop screen to actually read a book, it better be a good one. And I don’t mean like War and Peace good or The Odyssey good. I mean like Chelsea Handler memoir material. Shit that keeps my attention.
Nine times out of ten, this means it needs to be funny. A lack of sense of humor is the single biggest turn off for me.
Enter Rodney Lacroix. The Midget Man of Steel. Moooooog35. This clown has a shit ton of aliases, but I know them all. You know why? Because this A-hole is hilarious. And? He’s a fellow blogger. You may recall his rapist’s wit contributing to my SurferWife’s Fashion Disasters feature earlier this year.
So, why am I talking about books and Rodney Lacroix in the same blog post? Almost seems like an oxy-moron, right? Well, the funny man got his shit together and wrote one! With his little midget fingers, all by his lonesome. His blog name, The Midget Man of Steel, isn’t just for shits and giggles. It means he’s small. Tom Cruise small.
This book has it all. Tales of vasectomy, sledding disasters, and divorce woes accompanied by lots of illustrated pictures. Which is smart. He knows his audience has the attention span of a newborn gnat, so he reels us back in with illustrations.
This is what I had to say on Amazon about Things Go Wrong For Me:
Rodney Lacroix not only has a rad name, but he can write the crap out of a funny memoir. This is definitely an insanely ridiculous read that should be read by all. You think YOU’RE in your darkest hour? Spend a few of those dark hours reading this book and Rod will make you feel like a superhero. The perfect book to read at grandma’s house, while having a mammogram or on your toilet. It’s just THAT good.
You have just the person in mind to buy this for, don’t you? Well, here’s where you can buy this masterpiece:
http://bit.ly/UIgJBw – Barnes & Noble (paper only, no Nook version available)
http://bit.ly/12o6h8N – Amazon
http://bit.ly/ZpoiVk – Kindle (Pretty sure you can get it for $2.99 for a very limited time)
Need one last reason why you should buy this book? A book trailer was made and it’s pretty annoying. But convincing, so watch it and then buy it.
