Perhaps you've heard of the Midget Man of Steel before, otherwise known as that nutjob Rodney Lacroix. Blogger extraordinnaire of "Mental Poo," Draw Something game expert, and bestselling author of "Things Go Wrong for Me." The book was released on December 3rd, and for the entire week, it has been on Amazon's Top 100 on the humor best seller list! I got my "official" copy today, so I get to read the final version now (the review below is based upon an advanced copy). I'm not going to go into what Rodney wrote in my book when he signed it.....needless to say that man needs help. If you've read any of his musings though, that's not a big surprise to you now is it?
In case you missed it the first time, I'm reposting my review of this crazy book below. Order details are at the very end of this post.
Here's the review:
Well some crazy person thought it would be a good idea for him to write a second book (thanks a lot Ross), so here we are with a review of Rodney's second outing, "Perhaps I've Said Too Much."
I literally just finished it, and I am still giggling. The premise of the book (loosely) is about Rodney's years of not quite lying, but messing with people. REALLY messing with people. No one is safe, not even his children, Cam and Payton. However, they are getting old enough to get revenge on their old man and that is just enough karma to kick Rodney's ass. (Still love you Rod!)
Rodney still has that great way of telling his stories that you feel like you're in a conversation about them instead of just reading a good. His wonderful and relatable style is what makes his writing so personable and likeable.
He starts out with a story from his childhood where he had his classmates believing he had a bionic finger, like the 6 Million Dollar Man, Steve Austin. (If you don't know who the 6 million dollar man is, first I feel sorry for you and second, go google him) Damn I'm old. Anyhoo, of course little Rodney got busted by the teacher for his little ruse.
If you've also read Rodney's first book, the Brain Nuggets are back in full force. I won't give any away since they are all golden! Plus, another section on his Draw Something masterpieces.
There are 2.....yes TWO stories of his parents picking him up from the pokey (that's southern for jail). The book is worth it just for those stories people, I thought I'd pee my pants!
His endless pranks continue into his workplace, I can't wait for my copy of Poultry Today to arrive by the way.
Kerri, his then fiancee has of course put up with a lot, and now that she's married the schmuck, she's really in for it. I'm so sorry honey! I have a spare room in North Carolina if you ever need it. LOL!
Anyhoo, to wrap up a little since this review is a bit all over the place, I loved this book. I really think it's even better than "Things Go Wrong For Me." I look forward to book #3 if they improve with each book then #3 ought to be a doozy you guys!
Go immediately and get your copy of "Perhaps I've Said too Much" by Rodney Lacroix. You can also get a copy of his first book, "Things Go Wrong for Me." Might as well get the set right? See ordering links below, one of which you can order from and get yourself an autographed copy! I truly hope you enjoy it as much as I did. I'll be re-reading it when I get my autographed copy.
Oh and Rodney, some women do have a thing for midgets so you better watch it! Rawr!!! ;)

"It's not a lie if you believe it."
Bionic fingers. Self-combusting Tiffany lamps. Rubber spiders and ventriloquist dolls. Vindictive mothers throwing women down stairs.
Rodney Lacroix has lived his life trying to fool people. Some of this is on purpose. Some of this just comes naturally. But no matter what the story he spins, there is always retribution - and it is very rarely a happy ending.
Join Rodney as he walks you through hysterical stories told through the eyes of a perpetual liar. Wince at his untruths, told in the same unconventional style that won him two awards for his 2012 release, "Things Go Wrong for Me." Feel his pain. Shake your head. Learn some lessons.
As usual, all of the stories contained herein are true.
Or are they?
About the Author
Rodney Lacroix is a comedian, father of two amazing kids, reluctant 40-houra-
week software engineer and best-selling author. In 2013, Rodney was
awarded an NGI Book Awards Medal for his memoir, "Things Go Wrong for
Me." This beautiful medal is currently on display around his neck because he
has not taken it off since receiving it. Also he's not very humble.
Rodney firmly believes that fabricating grandiose tales about one's self makes
a person more impressive. That's exactly what he told Playgirl Magazine
when they did a 4-page nude spread of him.
It's probably best you don't believe anything Rodney says.
