It’s Not Me, It’s You by Jon Richardson is not an autobiography, which is good, because I don’t like celebrity autobiographies. Instead it it a book about the comedian Jon Richardson’s obsessive compulsive personality and perfectionism. I’ve seen Richardson on television where he covers similar material, and I find it funny and also easy to relate to as I am rather obsessive myself. The book was an extension of that; lots of humour and lots of things that I found myself agreeing with. He is also very honest about his personality and his thoughts, which is touching at times but can also be quite depressing in some places (especially when I am seeing my own flaws clearly described). I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from the book, other than that I knew I liked Richardson’s comedy, so I was pleasantly surprised that it was both funny and also quite insightful.
