Up-close, personal, and yes, funny -- this is the must-have celebrity memoir of the year.

This candid, first-person memoir chronicles Russell's life from his humble beginnings in suburbia as a scrawny, brown, bullied kid with ADD all the way to his remarkable rise as one of the world's top-earning comics. This is a shockingly honest book filled with poignant memories of his family, his life and his career. Call Me Russell is a deeply inspirational story for aspiring artists of any culture about having hope, working hard and dreaming big.

Interesting read. Definitely some funny parts that have stuck in my mind. Good light reading.

Funny Man Russell Peters takes you on a very interesting look at his background both culturally and personally to give a glimpse of what made him who he is. A very easy, entertaining and at times thoughtful read. Not your typically Narcissistic writing that so many comics use when writing similar books.

Better read this book, or "..someone's gonna get hurt real bad..."
