Publisher's Summary

A collection of funny personal essays from one of the writers of Superbad and Pineapple Express and one of the producers of The Disaster Artist, Neighbors, and The Boys. (All of these words have been added to help this book show up in people's searches using the wonders of algorithmic technology. Thanks for bearing with us!)

Hi! I'm Seth! I was asked to describe my book, Yearbook, for the inside flap (which is a gross phrase) and for websites and shit like that, so...here it goes!!!

Yearbook is a collection of true stories that I desperately hope are just funny at worst, and life-changingly amazing at best. (I understand that it's likely the former, which is a fancy 'book' way of saying 'the first one.)

I talk about my grandparents, doing stand-up comedy as a teenager, bar mitzvahs and Jewish summer camp, and tell way more stories about doing drugs than my mother would like. I also talk about some of my adventures in Los Angeles and surely say things about other famous people that will create a wildly awkward conversation for me at a party one day.

I hope you enjoy the book should you buy it, and if you don't enjoy it, I'm sorry. If you ever see me on the street and explain the situation, I'll do my best to make it up to you.

Critic Reviews

"Barkingly funny - to the point where I was kicked out of a room in my own apartment for laughing too much." (Toronto Star)

"At first I was worried that Seth was writing a book, because I was like, 'Oh no! What's he gonna say?' I was actually scared to even read it. But I'm very happy I did. It's not really a memoir, like I thought it might be. I guess it's more of a bunch of funny true stories? Does that make sense? He talks about doing stand-up when he was a kid (I drove him to all his shows!), his grandparents, high school, moving to LA, meeting some famous people, things like that. If I'm being honest, I really wish there wasn't so much drug talk. Why does he need all that! It's like, 'We get it!' And some of the stories? I mean, they're entertaining, but I was just shocked they happened and he never told me! Overall, I think it's more sweet and funny than anything, so I like it, and I'm glad he wrote it, but I'd be even more glad if he called me more." (Sandy Rogen, Seth's mother)

Seth seems like a cool guy

Ive never wanted to do drugs more in my life (and I'm not into drugs). The performances were fantastic. Seth's writing is insightful and funny. some of the shit that has happened to him is astounding, but he seems like a trustworthy guy, so I'll believe him.

Best way to read this autobiography

Seth's narration is great, and this audiobook has the best use of a full cast that I've come across so far. The sound effects enhanced it to the point where I'd have to say that this audiobook is the best way to listen to Seth's story

Audiobook Vs reading it yourself was the best choice

Seth and everyone he gets in to tell the stories really brings this to life in a special way. I was quite impressed that this was 90% new stories I hadn’t heard before on other interviews/podcasts which meant a fun look behind the scenes at his career.

Great read

Seth to me is one of the greatest actors and directors ever to walk the earth, this book is so well done and highlights some of Seth’s experiences and life growing up and into fame. Fantastic display of writing and humour all mixed into one epic journey. Would recommend for anyone who is even slightly a fan of Seth Rogen.

wasn't sure what to expect

This audio book from Seth Rogen is a great listen. A series of well told, well tied in stories providing an insight into the inspiration for some of Seth's work, as well as many hilarious anecdotes from his life so far.

great fun but wish it were a little 'deeper'

great fun, laugh out loud anecdotes! wish it went deeper into Seth's life and creative journey. wish it were a bit more hard-hitting. and wish it was longer!!

loved the insight into Canadian Jewish culture :)
