In a world where terrible people fill our lives as well as the news, this book was a much needed reminder that there are good people out there. Franken’s writing is an absolute delight and he is brutally honest throughout. Following his time from being a comedian to being a US Senator, Franken always brings the conversation back to interpersonal relationships, showing how important it is to be nice to those around you. His stories from within the Senate are both hopeful and heartbreaking and somehow managed to give me hope for the future. A must read, especially for people who need to feel like the world can possibly survive all of this mess.
