I cannot say I that I am a fan for "Everybody Loves Raymond"
but I found this to be very funny and enjoyable.
I found many of the stories very easy to relate to and understand.
I wish more audio books could be like this one.
It is a must listen.
Maybe I will watch Raymond now. Who knows.
It was an enjoyable book. It show how well a single life episode can become a screen character.
If you want to find some inspiring stories, here they are. If you are more interested on finding books about how to write Comedy, then look somewhere else.
Like the show, you enjoy the fun moments as Phil himself takes you on a journey of simple, genuine, authenticity. Some emotions along the way for good measure, like the show. A great listening punctuated with live recordings of some of Phil's special moments. His speech at the "last dinner" is a lesson in public speaking. His generosity in reading himself is a gift. Tough act to follow as this is my first audio book. Where do I go from here?
I loved the television show and thought the book could be interesting. I was delightfully surprised and enjoyed the entire story. The insights are hilarious! Having watched the show, I related to most all of his comparisons and respected the creativity more. (The show made was so easy and fun to follow-now I understand why.)
A great listen all the way around. The audio clips from live speeches were a great touch, as well. Enjoy!
