Summary
Ferguson has defied the odds his entire life. He has failed when he should have succeeded and succeeded when he should have failed. Here, readers will get a look into the mind and recollections of the unique and twisted Scottish American. Some of the stories were too graphic for television, too politically incorrect for social media, or too meditative for a stand-up comedy performance. Craig discusses his deep love for his native Scotland, examines his profound psychic change brought on by fatherhood, and looks at aging and mortality with a perspective that he was incapable of as a younger man
