How to Be Perfect

The Correct Answer to Every Moral Question

By Michael Schur
Narrated by: Michael Schur, Kristen Bell, D'Arcy Carden, Ted Danson, William Jackson Harper, Manny Jacinto, Marc Evan Jackson, Jameela Jamil & Todd May
Length: 9 hours 13 minutes

How to Be Perfect

“Who doesn’t need a little guidance on this topic, right? Michael Schur discusses what can be a weighty topic (that is often presented somewhat dryly) with wit and humor. I have to say, I prefer the audio version of this book. The tone and style are so engaging, and that aforementioned humor is highlighted in a way that I sometimes missed reading in my own voice. And, my 12- and 16-year-olds gathered around to listen as well. A true endorsement.”

Shit, Actually

The Definitive, 100% Objective Guide to Modern Cinema

By Lindy West
Narrated by: Lindy West
Length: 7 hours 16 minutes

Shit, Actually

“I would give this book a rating of 10/10 DVD copies of The Fugitive. Absolutely hilarious—I laughed out loud several times. I have watched most of the movies she talked about and am going to watch the one's I haven't immediately!! This is the perfect book for anyone who loves trash talking bad movies, pointing out plot holes, and discussing theories—or really anyone with a sense if humor who loves movies. I listened to the audiobook for this and WOW! Lindy West does an amazing job reading. She brings with her her witting sense of humor and an over-exuberance of nuances and words while reading. I LOVE this book. P.S. She has a terrible taste in movies... HAHA”
