Publisher Description

Get a look into the mind of Cheech Marin–one half of the renowned Cheech and Chong comedic duo–and follow through the highs and lows of his personal and professional lives. 

An unborn baby with a fatal heart defect . . . a skier submerged for an hour in a frozen Norwegian lake . . . a comatose brain surgery patient whom doctors have declared a "vegetable."

The long-awaited memoir from a counterculture legend. Cheech Marin came of age at an interesting time in America and became a self-made counterculture legend with his other half, Tommy Chong. This insightful memoir delves into how Cheech dodged the draft, formed one of the most successful comedy duos of all time, became the face of the recreational drug movement with the film Up in Smoke, forged a successful solo career with roles in The Lion King and, more recently, Jane the Virgin, and became the owner of the most renowned collection of Chicano art in the world. Written in Cheech's uniquely hilarious voice, this memoir will take you to new highs.

The best audiobook

Actually, this is the only audiobook I’ve listened to in its entirety. It helps that Cheech is the one narrating. He is such a fascinating person. I met him some years back at an art event, and the book didn’t disappoint in highlighting significant points of his career. I didn’t want to leave my car for work as I listened to him talking about his films, family, and of course, the era of Cheech and Chong. I would listen to it again.
