  • I'm Not High

    With his goofy smile, sleepy eyes, and stoner's laugh, Jim Breuer might not appear to be the most introspective comedian out there. The fact that Jim Breuer made his mark playing Goat Boy on Saturday Night Live and a recalcitrant toker in the stoner classic Half Baked doesn't help his reputation at all. But in I'm Not High, we meet a whole new Jim Breuer.

    "Great book"
    Overall

    If you want this book because you want a comedy book written a hilarious guy then this is not for you. The book is a great book. Jim is one of the best story tellers. Probably the best next to Artie Lange. The stories are, for the most part, feel good stories that I think anybody can relate to. They might not have you rolling around on the ground laughing but they're definitely worth hearing. Great book, Jim!

    It's a sad and eerie harbinger of our times that the Oprah-watching, crystal-rubbing, Whole Foods-shopping moms and their whipped attorney husbands have taken the ability to reason away from the poor schlub who makes the Bloody Marys. What we used to settle with common sense or a fist, we now settle with hand sanitizer and lawyers. Adam Carolla has had enough of this insanity and he's here to help us get our collective balls back.

    Ace is the man. His points of view are hilariously accurate. If you're an opinionated person that likes his pod cast then you'll love the book. MUST listen.

  • Medium Raw: A Bloody Valentine to the World of Food and the People Who Cook

    In the 10 years since his classic Kitchen Confidential first alerted us to the idiosyncrasies and lurking perils of eating out, much has changed for the subculture of chefs and cooks, for the restaurant business and for Anthony Bourdain. Medium Raw explores those changes, tracking Bourdain's strange and unexpected voyage from journeyman cook to globe-traveling professional eater and drinker, and even to fatherhood. Bourdain takes no prisoners as he dissects what he's seen.

    Andy says: "entertaining but not as good as kitchen conf."
    "Over all a good book"
    Overall

    If you read Anthony's book, this is a good continuation of that. Some parts seemed a little long and drawn out but that's okay. I found it interesting for at least 90% of the time. It probably helps that he has a really good voice for reading. If you liked Kitchen Confidential, then you'll most likely enjoy this.

  • Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea

    In this wickedly honest new work, Chelsea Handler casts the net wider with even funnier results, recalling the most noteworthy highs and lows of her life to date - including her efforts to diversify by dating red-haired men, her obsession with midgets, and the dog-sitting interlude in which her boyfriend became overly familiar with a Peekapoo.

    Teddy says: "Just Plain FUNNYYYY!!!!!!!!!"
    "Not really that good."
    Overall

    This book seemed like a forced attempt at humor. I went in with an open mind but I couldn't get past the forced feeling I got with the stories. It seemed as if she was just making things up for the sake of being funny, instead of slightly embellishing for the sake of humor, like any other comedian (I use this term loosely) would do. I admit that I am not a fan of Chelsea but I did go in with an open mind. I did the same thing with Kathy Griffin's latest book and I came out of it really liking her as a person and I hoped to do the same with Chelsea but I couldn't. I suggested avoiding this book like the plague and listening to any other book ever made.

    Last summer, The New Yorker published chef Anthony Bourdain's shocking, "Don't Eat Before Reading This." Now, the author uses the same "take-no-prisoners" attitude in his deliciously funny and shockingly delectable audiobook, sure to delight gourmands and philistines alike.

    Holly says: "Kitchen Confidential"
    "Phenomenal Book"
    Overall

    Anthony's voice was perfect and it was very well read by him. I really enjoyed every story and he really helped me connect to every story. I don't know a thing about food and this book was awesome. Highly suggested.

  • Methland: The Death and Life of an American Small Town

    Crystal methamphetamine is widely considered to be the most dangerous drug in the world, and nowhere is that more true than in the small towns of the American heartland. Methland tells the story of Oelwein, Iowa (pop. 6,159), which, like thousands of other small towns across the country, has been left in the dust by the consolidation of the agricultural industry, a depressed local economy, and an out-migration of people.

    Sean says: "Interesting, then not."
    "Great book"
    Overall

    A great read and a good book. I thought it dragged on a tiny bit at the end but it wasn't bad. I really learned a lot from this book and found it interesting for the vast majority of the time. A must listen.

  • Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game

    Moneyball is a quest for something that money can't buy: the secret of success in baseball. The real jackpot is a cache of numbers collected by a brotherhood of baseball enthusiasts: software engineers, statisticians, Wall Street analysts, and physics professors. These numbers prove that the traditional measure of success for players and teams are fatally flawed. This information has been around for years, and nobody paid it any mind. And then came Billy Beane, General Manager of the Oakland A's.

    Steven says: "Best Audible Book Yet"
    "Great book"
    Overall

    I do not like baseball and most definitely do not like statistics but this book is amazing. It made me so interested in baseball that I cannot even put it into words. Billy Beane is really an amazing person and this book shows why. Never a dull moment.
