A wild one, gone too soon. Chris's brother compiled this oral history of reminiscences by the comedian's friends and family. Chris comes across as talented, sweet, family-oriented and earnest. He was able to sober up at times, but in the end his addictions won. Read full review

The biography of Chris Farley spared no anguish. Every detail of how Chris carried himself is brought to life through the story telling of some 25+ people; most of which are names you and I would recognize. I enjoyed Chris Farley's acting before reading this biography, now I can honestly say I enjoyed him as a person too. They way the Farley brothers make you feel what Chris was going through all the way to his demise, amazing. Chris Farley was truly loved by some of the world's funniest comic talents and many, many fans. If your a fan of 'Tommy Boy' or Chris's many SNL skits, they take on a whole new meaning once reading this book. How about the movie Shrek, learn something that very few people have heard until now. Please do yourself a favor and go out and buy this book.
