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

“Curiosity to Hilarity to Thoughtfulness and all around. Michael Schur's How to Be Perfect as read by himself was fascinating and laugh inducing. I appreciate his due diligence to be real in creating the absurd world of a tv show. The 'notes' Michael offers are like sprinkles on ice cream, thoughts made even more memorable with humor. And some 'hard' interpretative info on philosophers including Aristotle, Neitzche, Wittgenstein, T.M. Scanlon, Kant and others. Brilliant for me! Oh, and the author's voice is just fine as reader.”

The Nineties

A Book

By Chuck Klosterman
Narrated by: Chuck Klosterman & Dion Graham
Length: 12 hours 38 minutes

The Nineties

“Born in the mid-nineties but truly a child of the 2000’s, I have always romanticized the nineties. Klosterman uniquely provides a broad but also individual look at my favorite decade. Only having fleeting knowledge of various aspects of the decade- Y2K, OJ Simpson, landlines, watching Friends live- I loved Klosterman’s take and insights on the times!”

Go Back to Where You Came From

And Other Helpful Recommendations on How to Become an American

By Wajahat Ali
Narrated by: Wajahat Ali
Length: 8 hours 22 minutes

Go Back to Where You Came From

“This was an excellent memoir told with humor and grace. Ali is sharp, smart and hilarious. Despite many hardships, he still is optimistic while telling hard truths that people need to hear. I listened to this and Ali is an excellent narrator. I do think there is something to that Ali curse, especially on the physical side and I wish his family the very best.”
