Description

At last, the full story behind Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman's epic romance, including stories, portraits, and the occasional puzzle, all telling the smoldering tale that has fascinated Hollywood for over a decade. 

The year: 2000. The setting: Los Angeles. A gorgeous virtuoso of an actress had agreed to star in a random play, and a basement-dwelling scenic carpenter had said he would assay a supporting role in the selfsame pageant. At the first rehearsal, she surveyed her fellow cast members, as one does, determining if any of the men might qualify to provide her with a satisfying fling. Her gaze fell upon the carpenter, and like a bolt of lightning, the thought struck her: No dice. Moving on.  

Yet, unbeknownst to our protagonists, Cupid had merely set down his bow and picked up a rocket launcher. Then fired a love rocket (not a euphemism). The players were Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman, and the resulting romance, once it ignited, was... epic. Beyond epic. It resulted in a coupling that has endured to this day; a sizzling, perpetual tryst that has captivated the world with its kindness, athleticism, astonishingly low-brow humor, and true (fire emoji) passion.  

How did they do it? They came from completely different families, endured a significant age difference, and were separated by the gulf of several social strata. Megan loved books and art history; Nick loved hammers. But much more than these seemingly unsurpassable obstacles were the values they held in common: respect, decency, the ability to mention genitalia in almost any context, and an abiding obsession with the songs of Tom Waits.  

Eighteen years later, they're still very much in love, and have finally decided to reveal the philosophical mountains they have conquered, the lessons they've learned, and the myriad jigsaw puzzles they've completed, in an audiobook. Featuring anecdotes, hijinks, interviews, photos, and a veritable grab bag of tomfoolery, this is not only the intoxicating audiobook that Mullally's and Offerman's fans have been waiting for, it might just hold the solution to the greatest threat facing our modern world: the single life.

Meh

I like both of these actors but I thought this book was boring and only marginally entertaining. As one reviewer mention, none of the pictures they talk about for 2 sections are available. Descriptions of photographs are tedious and do not make for fun reading. You feel like you’re in the back of the crowd and can’t see the show. Tina Fey found a way to include photographs. Maybe she could offer some suggestions. The book is presented so you almost feel like you’re sitting with them and listening to a spontaneous conversation, which I enjoyed. They came off a a little insufferable. I know their lives are nothing like mine and expected that. In between the few funny bits, they came across as preachy and spoiled. I really wanted to like the book but it just fell flat for me. As a couple who says they enjoy audio books, I would have thought they would have had catered a little more to others who also enjoys them.

Perfect comedy memoir audiobook

I think this is by far the best comedic memoir I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. And in audiobook format it is absolutely perfect; I can’t imagine enjoying this book any other way. Megan & Nick have far too great of chemistry to not hear them narrate. If you need a happy, hilarious book- get this one!! You can’t get any better!

Not sure if I like or not.

It's like listening to a podcast (2 people chatting), more than reading from an already written book. I wonder what's actually in the book? A direct transcripts from their hours of chatting? And this doesn't come with the photos download!

Heartwarming, thoughtful, fun!

Delightfully down to earth and relatable! This book feels honest and is not "pushy" in it's delivery. Both entertaining and thought provoking. Very enjoyable listen!

Great comedy memior

Megan and Nick are the perfect narrators, I wish they could narrate more books. It feels like you're listening to a casual conversation between them as you learn about their lives and love story.

If anyone was a good laugh and appreciates learning about other people, this is a great read!

Good, Really Funny. Listen with your boo.

Love their back and forth but wish I knew of this differed from the book (because it was just SO conversational) or if it was spot on. Loved it either way.

Seriously SO entertaining!

Listen to this! I am half way through and it is soooo entertaining and FUNNY. It is read by the authors so I highly highly suggest getting the audio book as opposed to reading the paper version. You have to hear this in their voices, with their banter. They are truly just so sweet and in love, it makes for a very fun and happy listen.Very lighthearted look into their life together, their humor with each other and on the screen, how they met, etc. Chapters are broken down well and they ask each other fun questions. You can tell they learned even a lot about each other while writing this bk. Reads almost like a podcast, or as if they are sitting across the table from you. I am sad to be nearing the end and hope for a pt2. Love their story. Reads and flows well.

Odd couple in love

Love them both but Megan's voice can grate on you in this book. Up side is they seem to really have found their soulmates. An uplifting, romantic, honest book

Best Couple Ever!

I love these two. Their chemistry comes through on this audiobook and I listened to it twice. Perhaps I should give jigsaw puzzles another chance? You will laugh out loud and smile the whole way through. Thank you Megan and Nick.

Brilliant

I absolutely loved this audiobook! Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman talk about a bunch of different topics, including their upbringing and how they met, and we get to hear a lot about them as people and their lives. It's not always funny, but life isn't either. I highly recommend it, especially since they read it themselves. It's great to listen to.
