I'm a huge David Sedaris fan, and enjoyed the other two audio books on Audible by the same. However, this live performance is to be skipped, as it has material from the other two books on it. The only difference is that on this version, you get to hear audience reaction, which is fun. Still, I wish I'd saved my money for when audible posts Naked or another Sedaris book.
I've enjoyed all the others, but can't give this more than 3/5. I found the stories a tad boring, and found myself giggling a lot less than in others.
This book is funny, smart, and genuinely useful. I couldn't stop the listen... I highly recommend this one. The deadpan delivery is perfect for this topic.
I enjoyed every minute of this audiobook. This one is intellectual, but easy to understand for anyone. A little bit philosophy, a lot social science, and a bit of wit here and there. My favorite audio book to date, and I listen a lot.
I'm a retail designer so have found this audiobook to be quite enjoyable from start to finish. It's a little 'light' but for me that's just what I enjoy after the 'heaviness' of working all day. One of the most enjoyable audiobooks I've yet purchased.
I'm an avid listener to books of this type and have never heard one that was more loosly written, or read with a more annoying inflection. The style of psuedo-conversational writing is awful and particularly unsuited for audiobooks. I learned absolutely nothing in this book except to avoid books by this author in the future.
