Book: Here's the Deal: Don't Touch Me by Howie Mandel and Josh Young
About: Biography of comedian Howie Mandel, Adult ADHD and OCD sufferer, germophobe and host of Deal Or No Deal
Pros: Easy read. Funny, I laughed out loud a few times. Learned some tidbits about Howie that I didn't know: He was the voice of Gizmo in Gremlins as well as the voice of Animal, Skeeter and Bunsen Honeydew in the Muppet Babies cartoon. He also never finished high school.
Cons: I would've liked more discussion of his mental health issues as the book is mostly the story of Howie the comedian and not Howie the germophobe.
