Description

A collection of funny personal essays from one of the writers of Superbad and Pineapple Express and one of the producers of The Disaster Artist, Neighbors, and The Boys. (All of these words have been added to help this book show up in people’s searches using the wonders of algorithmic technology. Thanks for bearing with us!) The audiobook cast features more than 80 voices, including cameos by Rogen’s mom and dad, Nick Kroll, Jay Pharoah, Jason Segel, Dan Aykroyd, Ike Barinholtz, Simon Helberg, Tommy Chong, and Billy Idol.

Hi! I’m Seth! I was asked to describe my audiobook, Yearbook for websites and shit like that, so...here it goes!!!

Yearbook is a collection of true stories that I desperately hope are just funny at worst, and life-changingly amazing at best. (I understand that it’s likely the former, which is a fancy “book” way of saying “the first one.”) 

I talk about my grandparents, doing stand-up comedy as a teenager, bar mitzvahs, and Jewish summer camp, and tell way more stories about doing drugs than my mother would like. I also talk about some of my adventures in Los Angeles, and surely say things about other famous people that will create a wildly awkward conversation for me at a party one day.

I hope you enjoy the audiobook should you buy it, and if you don’t enjoy it, I’m sorry. If you ever see me on the street and explain the situation, I’ll do my best to make it up to you.

Ce que les critiques en disent

Meaningless unobjective praise for Yearbook

“At first I was worried that Seth was writing a book, because I was like, ‘Oh no! What’s he gonna say’? I was actually scared to even read it. But I’m very happy I did. It’s not really a memoir, like I thought it might be. I guess it’s more of a bunch of funny true stories? Does that make sense? He talks about doing stand-up when he was a kid (I drove him to all his shows!), his grandparents, high school, moving to LA, meeting some famous people, things like that. If I’m being honest, I really wish there wasn’t so much drug talk. Why does he need all that! It’s like, ‘We get it’! And some of the stories? I mean, they’re entertaining, but I was just shocked they happened and he never told me! Overall, I think it’s more sweet and funny than anything, so I like it, and I’m glad he wrote it, but I’d be even more glad if he called me more.” (Sandy Rogen, Seth’s mother)

Best ever

This book is a must listen for anyone who loves Seth Rogan, lives in or near Vancouver, enjoys weed and other hallucinogens or purely just wants to listen to something not fucking intense and depressing for once these days.

Laughter, insight, and drugs

I just finished listening to "Year Book" and it was such a great time! Growing up as a functioning stoner in Toronto in the 90's, I was taken back with the similarities I shared with Seth in our teenage years. I can't help but think that we would have been friends if we were both on the west coast during theses times but sadly that was not the case. Regardless, this is a fun and engaging book and very easy to put on, light a joint, and laugh out loud to. Do yourself a favour and give this a listen, you won't regret it! Unless you do, in which case, lighten up.

Gives perspective

Honestly this book is really good, like real stories, well said, and it made me think differently about bad things that can turn into weird, and even into funny if you change the perspective you look at it. Overall a light read, funny all the way through it, with bits that makes you rethink stuff, I loved this book!

might re-read it to savour it

An absolute must-listen

Hands down my favourite autobiography. The audiobook is amazingly well done and I was howling with laughter the whole way through. Here's hoping Seth writes a follow up soon.

Incredibly funny!

I finished this audiobook faster than any other ones I have listened to before. I highly recommend LISTENING to this book rather than actually reading it, Seth has done an incredible job of putting us in his shoes throughout his hilarious antics into adulthood. His honestly, hilarity and celebrity-impressions are spot on and I cannot recommend this audiobook enough. HIGHlarious.

Clever title about Mushrooms

It's like you're sitting around a bonfire at summer camp, Camp Leader Seth is settling in to tell a story to the group.. then passes a joint one direction and Mushy chocolate bar the other.

His style of writing, as if he was sitting there telling you the stories in person is involving, personal and just F****** hilarious.
His insight and personal reflection on each mind altering experience is refreshing and intriguing to listen too.

strongly recommend this book for anyone who has ever been curious as to why Seth Rogen is so damn funny.

The Most Amazing Storytelling

This was the most entertaining audio book I've EVER listened to. Well written, communicated flawlessly and I was in stitches the whole time... I felt like I was across the table from Seth just listening to him tell stories... i originally thought it was something to have on in the background at work and quickly realized i need to sit at home uninterrupted and immerse myself in every word. Well done Seth.

Thank you Seth Rogen!

This was the most satisfying audiobook experience I’ve ever had! It was immersive and sincere. I felt as if I was sitting around a family room with Seth Rogen and cast in-person. The production quality is terrific. Most importantly though, it was heartwarming to hear someone with a big heart share zesty wisdom on life.

Laugh out loud funny with heart.

Funny stories told with heart- what we’ve come to expect from Seth over the years and he delivers. I laughed out loud by myself more than a few times. When Snoop calls on his cohort of ‘hoes’ to come in and dance while he writes a rap verse I nearly pissed myself. Despite being famous his whole adult life Seth retains an every man perspective and is able to see the absurdity when famous people act like caricatures of themselves.

LOTS of weed & drug talk, but hey-it's Seth Rogen

What else would someone expect?

Stoners are normally my least favorite person. It's just not my thing. Seth is just so charming and likable here that that it's easy to overlook it. The stories are genuine and he seems as amused by the things that happened to him as we are.

The most unique part is that he casts a lot of the people in his stories to voice themselves (his mom, Billy Idol, etc.) and then gets impressionists like Jay Pharoah to voice those he couldn't get. It's the best use of guests on an audiobook since the Beastie Boys' parade of guest stars on theirs.

It was an easy listen in the car and I finished it over the weekend. You don't have to be a total superfan of all his work to enjoy this collection of stories from his life.

Crazy Funny Stories

Year Book is laugh out loud funny throughout. Comedians have the best audio books in my opinion and Seth Rogen's reading of this is up there with my favorite audiobooks. Highly recommend! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

mostly "ok" stories from a B list celebrity

most of the book was entertaining. my biggest complaints are the relentless make dropping, and the fact he spent an entire chapter complaining about the censorship surrounding his movie, then went on a rant about how people he disagree with should be banned from Twitter.

Very entertaining!

Very open, honest and super-duper, duper funny stories looking back at a Jewish Canadian boy's life from normaldom in Vancouver BC to the heart of Hollywood elite's weirdom and other good shit too!

Seth as awesome as always!

Great stories - they take me back to my childhood, teens, and early 20’s and the fun of zero responsibility. I laughed out loud the entire time — not something I’m known for when listening to audiobooks. I’m hope this is only volume 1 because I would download the next one immediately. Excellent storyteller- very relatable and nostalgic. 100% worth the credit. Loved it!!

Short

This is a great audio book, but it is just too short to be able to justify a 5 star rating.

Good until it turned political

This book was so lighthearted and funny until 2/3 of the way through when Seth goes on a GOP-bashing rant that was completely out of place in this book.
