Review quote

Praise for YOU ARE A MISERABLE EXCUSE FOR A HERO: "You are a miserable excuse for a person if you don't buy this hilarious book. Bob Powers is some kind of comedy genius or something. Frankly, I'm scared."--Paul Feig, creator of the TV series "Freaks and Geeks" and author of Superstud "There are page turners and then there are page turners. This wonderful, pathetic tale left me wanting more pages."--Zach Galifianakis "No one I know writes so funny and so sad at the same time better than Bob Powers. If you're willing to take a chance and jump into his twisted mind, you're in for a delicious, cringe-inducing treat. ...This book is like those great 'Choose Your Own Adventure' books we read as kids, if the pain and soul-crushing responsibility of adulthood had infested the whole thing."--Bryan Tucker, writer for "Chappelle's Show" and "Saturday Night Live" "As I read Bob Powers' 'Just Make a Choice!' adventure, I endeavored to choose honestly, according to my own ethics and beliefs. Unfortunately, this resulted in babies being aborted, people being murdered, unspeakable debauchery and multiple dead-end jobs, just like my real life!"--John Roderick, lead singer/songwriter, The Long Winters
