An avid reader, who also loves to listen.
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).?.
I have to admit, I have never been a big fan of Penn (or Teller for that matter) but I listened to his first book and loved it and so, I decided to listen to this title and LOVED this even more. Penn is very smart and he is simply hilarious. Also, as a narrator he does an excellent job reciting his own work. Aside from the humor, there’s actually a great deal of truth in what he preaches and his inclusion of George Carlin, Christopher Hitchens and Richard Dawkins helps the credibility in that. In addition, the parts about his parents’ death were very touching and emotional while some parts of the book may be considered a little raunchy for some. Even still, overall I thought this was a great listen and without a doubt, I will definitely be recommending this title to all of my friends!
I don't really care for Mike and Mike too much but I definitely enjoyed this audio book a great deal. And I absolutely love their Indendence Day idea, which would make the firework celebration on the first Thursday of every July!
Anybody can simply read words on a page and try to add character voices, but Tell 'Em Steve Dave went well past that providing insight and commentary into some classic fairy tales. You won't get just the "what" here, you'll get hilarious opinions on the "why".
