  1. Wow – Congrats! I enjoyed this book, and especially enjoyed an earlier book he did with a friend about their experience of “racing around the world” on a bet(The Ridiculous Race). I didn’t know he was writing for The Office — that’s great news, he’s a really talented and funny writer.

  2. I absolutely loved this book, and I am thrilled he has joined the writing staff of TO. Congratulations on the much deserved win!
