akin to listening to my 12 year old nephew. started skipping chapters to see if it got funny. wish I had read the reviews before buying.
Absolutely no merit....as if my fourteen year old son and friends got together to make up funny history...only it isn't, not funny nor clever...don't waste your money
I feel it my public duty to warn others not to waste a credit on this mess. I can't say it any better than the reviewer from NC on 11/11/09: "sophomoric, repetitive, self indulgent prattle". I suspect that the earlier superlative reviews were planted.
I thought about shutting it off within the first five minutes, but I decided to get through the interminable prologue before giving up on it. It does get marginally better, but I wouldn't recommend it.
This is one of the most unfunny humor books I have ever read or downloaded. At times, I was vaguely amused, but my predominant emotion was annoyance. His voice is grating, and his repetition of "jokes" (his musical co-host is a feral mountain man) and phrases (I gave up after hearing "It Happened Today...in the Past" for the 200th time) is equally as grating. I truly don't understand why people found this so funny.
I suppose if you enjoyed his previous book, which after listening to this one I won't bother to try, you would like this. For my part, I would recommend Bossypants for a clever, funny humor book read by the author.
Had the potential to be funny but missed the mark. One of those few purchases I made that I regretted.
Really should have read the customer reviews first would have saved me the money.

AS YOU KNOW I PURCHASE A LOT OF AUDIO AND IN ALL CATEGORIES BUT THIS BOOK WAS A MISTAKE AND POORLY REPRESENTED . PLEASE GIVE ME A CREDIT IT WOULD BE WORTH IT.
