I Am the New Black, Tracy Morgan with Anthony Bozza (Spiegel & Grau) 

Somtimes fun reading, just avoid the comedian's life lessons.

Brilliant at times, nonsensical, poorly written and (sometimes) funny, I Am the New Black is about what you'd expect from a Tracy Morgan autobiography. Each moment of candidness (the cessation of his relationship with his mother) and tragedy (the AIDS-related death of Morgan's father) is matched by a reflective moment in which Morgan passes on a life lesson to his fans. The book is uneven, picking up steam when Morgan writes frankly about aspects of his life that fans want to know about---his time on SNL and his less-than-shining past---but then slams into a wall when Morgan tries to impart his wisdom. An entertaining read, but only finishable by Morgan fans.
