I find myself laughing out loud in sort of a snort and chortle way... completely unexpected. This book takes you on a wild and wonderfully colorful journey through this bizarre author's life/mind/family. I absolutely LOVE this book and HIGHLY recommend it.
It was recommended to me a few years ago by my very intelligent and highly evolved daughter (she's single and gorgeous if anyone is interested!) My only regret (about this book, not about life in general) is that I waited so long to get it. I am seriously looking forward to reading the rest of his works. YOU'LL LOVE IT.
Hoot this book she was. David is funny from the first line to the last making fun of conventions of acceptable speach. Fun listen.
This was a good and LIGHT read between Friedman's World is Flat and Roberts' History of the World. This was short and sweet, but lacked any sort of point. This is not a story, rather a collection of humorous events in the author's life (not sure how true the anecdotes are).
Honestly, this guy had a funny funny life. My favorites are the readings in front of a live crowd, you can tell the crowd is thinking the same thing. Please give me more live recordings!!!
I didn't find this book as funny as many of your other reviewers; especially the section about his life as a heavy drug user.
I heard from friends that the book was hilarious, so I decided to purchase it on Audible. It's even better than the book, I dare guess, as the narrator's voice is the author himself. His delivery is perfect and his writing is witty. Don't miss this one!
I was looking around for a neat book and everyone was buying this one...must be good. No, it was great. There is just something about the way he reads it. He writes alot how I think and it really inspired me to write a book. That book has now turned into a independent-type film I'm working on. A great author inspires others...thank you David.
I listen to audiobooks egen I am running and this book killed me! Sometimes I had to stop, I could not catch my breath because the book made me laugh! I really enjoyed it, easy listening with a fantastic performance from the author himself. Everyday essays with a humoristic twist!
