What Its About: 
Jon Cryer has had, in his life, multiple personas... Too Gen Xers, he is best known as "Duckie", Molly Ringwald's lovable and love-stricken buddy in Pretty in Pink. Too the younger set, he is better known as Alan Harper, Charlie Sheen's silly brother on the popular sitcom Two and A Half Men. And, at one time, he was even known as Matthew Broderick, who clearly he is not. But, as a common understudy choice on Broadway, it was easy for Cryer to be mistaken for his fellow actor and performer.

Cryer recounts his life so far and his rise to fame in this hysterical memoir, sharing entertaining anecdotes and, somewhat, random (but really interesting) information - such as the real story behind a very popular 1970's song which, frankly, was written with false information.

The Bottom Line:
A great read!
