  • Sh-t My Dad Says

    After being dumped by his longtime girlfriend, 28-year-old Justin Halpern found himself living at home with his 73-year-old dad. Sam Halpern, who is “like Socrates, but angrier, and with worse hair,” has never minced words, and when Justin moved back home, he began to record all the ridiculous things his dad said to him.

    Michael says: "Really Funny! Should Be Up for an Audie Award"
    "Listening to This While Driving is Dangerous"
    Overall

    The narration (performance, really) is outstanding and the belly laughs come rapid fire. I'll be giving this as a gift to all of my friends. If you have a non-delicate sense of humor (and a father) you will not be disappointed.

  • Ignore Everybody: And 39 Other Keys to Creativity

    When Hugh MacLeod was a struggling young copywriter living in a YMCA, he started to doodle on the backs of business cards while sitting at a bar. Those cartoons eventually led to a popular blog - gapingvoid.com - and a reputation for pithy insight and humor, in both words and pictures. MacLeod has opinions on everything from marketing to the meaning of life, but one of his main subjects is creativity. How do new ideas emerge in a cynical, risk-averse world?

    I love the humor of Hugh MacLeod but the narrator's goofy style distracts to make the book almost painful. I'll buy the e-book or paper version and so should you.
