“Candid, self-aware and told with his trademark humor, Perry vividly details his lifelong battle with the disease and what fueled it despite seemingly having it all,” the statement continued. “Perry’s memoir, the first from a cast member of ‘Friends,’ is unflinchingly honest, dishy and hilarious. This is the book that ‘Friends’ fans have been waiting for but will also shed a powerful light for anyone who is in their own battle for themselves or a loved one.”
