Product description

Product Description

A delightfully funny collection of essays by the Indian-American actor, Kunal Nayyar, who plays the loveable, sincere yet incurably dorky character Raj in The Big Bang Theory.

In this revealing book, Kunal Nayyar traces his journey from a nervous little boy in New Delhi who mistakes an awkward first kiss for a sacred commitment, gets nosebleeds chugging Coca-Cola to impress the other students at his all-boys school to the confident guy on the set of one of television's most-watched shows who one day eve gets to kiss the woman of his childhood dreams: Winnie Cooper from The Wonder Years.

Throughout, Kunal introduces us to the people who helped him grow, chief among them his slick moustachioed father. From his father, Kunal learned the most important lessons of life: treat a beggar as you would a king. There are two sides to every story. A smile goes a long way. And, when in doubt, use a spreadsheet.

Full of heart, but never taking itself too seriously, this is a coming-of-age story about a young man trying to find his place in between cultures, growing into himself as a person and a performer, and of the many embarrassing incidents that somehow miraculously prepared him to land the role that would make his career.

About the Author

Kunal Nayyar was born in London, England and raised in New Dehli, India. He first came to the United States in 1999 to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Business at the University of Portland (Oregon) and he received an MFA in Acting from Temple University. He has been part of The Big Bang Theory ensemble since it debuted in 2007. A ratings powerhouse in its sixth season (2012-13), The Big Bang Theory was the #1 most viewed scripted show in the 18-49 demographic on television and the ratings leader in all of syndicated programming. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Neha, who was named Miss India in 2006.
