Summary

Chris Gethard has often found himself in absurd, awkward situations most people would have safely avoided. Take his volunteering for the "Scared Straight" program (resulting in inmates openly threatening to rape him) or his horrendously botched attempt to fulfill his childhood dream of becoming a pro wrestler. Or the time he instigated a high-speed chase with a New Jersey State Trooper. A Bad Idea I'm About to Docollects Gethard's most popular stories from growing up an ill-fated nerd forced to navigate the perils of adolescence with a name that spells, "Get hard." With witty, self-deprecating charm, he invites us to revisit the joys of puberty, high school, virginity, dorm life, and beyond, and encourages us to take comfort in the fact that--as his experiences often prove--things could always be much, much worse.
