“In this collection of tales from a nerdy, stumbling adolescence . . . Chris Gethard will make you laugh, cry, and be glad that you aren’t him.” —The Huffington Post
Chris Gethard has often found himself in awkward situations most people, including you, probably would have safely avoided. The good news is now, thanks to this book, you can enjoy the painfully funny consequences of his unfortunate decisions at a safe distance.
A Bad Idea I’m About to Do invites readers to join Chris as he navigates an adolescence and adulthood mired in hilariously ill-fated nerdom, and to take comfort in the fact that—as his experiences often prove—things could always be much, much worse.
