7/50 American on Purpose by Craig Ferguson

       I like reading autobiographies of public figures. I want to hear their side of their story. You might know Craig Ferguson from The Drew Carey Show, but he is currrently hosting the Late Late Show  on CBS. He was born Scottish, but recently became a naturalized citizen of the United States. He talked about the application process, the testing, and the citizenship award ceremony on his show. He is very proud to be American-by-choice. He reminds me of things I have forgotten and taken for granted about being American. He is also funny as hell and has an interesting story to tell. My favorite line is "That is a quality I admire, but do not possess". I'm going to use that someday.

3/5 stars because, well...autobiographies aren't exactly literature.
