One of my favorite books of all time, this book is an absolute classic. Makes me wonder what would have happened if Snowball (Trotsky) had been put in charge instead of Napoleon (A.K.A. Stalin).?.
When it comes to audiobooks, literature is okay. Self help, educational and history books are great BUT nothing beats comedy! And overall, this book was super funny. Felt just like I was there at a comedy show. Warning: listening to this by yourself with the head phones on may make you look a little strange as everyone will look at you and wonder what the heck are you laughing at. It gives a new means to LOL!
Tosh is hilarious. I love his show and I now love this audiobook, which wasn’t actually a book but was the audio recorded version of his stand-up comedy. Loved his take on baseball being a racist pastime and on the founding fathers. Very funny stuff. My only issue was that the book was too short.
I think sometimes people click "unhelpful" when they mean "I disagree". Can there be an agree/ disagree button next to the helpful option?
I'm a fan of the Daily Show, and I've liked Samantha Bee (especially when she wears that sexy retainer), but I wasn't expecting to love her book as much as I did. I was prepared for yet another collection of 'funny' observations - but that's not what "I Know I Am..." is. It's a genuine memoir of a non-traditional childhood, and the picture it paints was familiar to me in many ways. If you've lived a few decades, they'll likely be familiar to you too. Her stories of growing up in three different households are the very opposite of truth-y. They are genuinely funny, in a way that is real. I'd even say important. Oh! I am seriously going to have to use these two words: Uplifting. Healing. (But not in a gay way.)
If your life sucks right now - you should make her your new Aunt Bee and buy it. If you think your life might suck later, just buy it now so you're ready.
