If there was a new project to tackle with Izzard's charisma, wit, and persistence, it's writing more. Although I am glad to have learned his inspiring story, the content reads kind of sophomoric and boring because he lists a lot of information instead of diving deeper into self analysis. Also it could have used more humor.

That being said, I would love to read a book of witty essays by him in the future.

I freaking loved this!!!

If you pick this up, do NOT read it without the audiobook!!! It is read by the author, and her asides and rambling footnotes are everything.

I loved this book. Anxiety is not easy to control; finding your own “shelter dog” may be difficult, but once found makes life easier to bear.
