“Thanks For the Money” (G.P. Putnam’s Sons), by Joel McHale

When thinking of Joel McHale, some may immediately conjure images of the actor in the cult classic “Community.” Others may know him as the host who provided enough sarcasm to fill a room in the pop culture talk show “The Soup.”

In “Thanks For the Money,” McHale is quick to point out that how you know about him is irrelevant - as long as you admit his luscious locks are indeed not a hairpiece.

He invites readers to use his experience as a somewhat famous person to be the best household name they can be. He writes about how famous people diet and explains the task of choosing a celebrity feud that’s right for you. The book also delves into the details of his day-to-day life, answering questions such as: What would it be like to challenge Chevy Chase in a fight? And how many head injuries can a person sustain before being hospitalized?

McHale manages to take everyday scenarios and twist them into witty and oddly relatable life lessons. The book is smart, honest and clever.
