I usually just click on the star-rating and don't usually write reviews, but I felt compelled in this case. There is no doubt that the author is smart and can write (the main reason for 2 stars instead of 1), but his subject matter is mind-numbingly idiotic. Elaborately detailed essays on topics such as Pamela Anderson and MTV The Real Life are long, boring, and inane, and would only interest someone else similarly obsessed. I kept hoping he all of his minute observations and pointless philosophizing about pop-culture and celebrities would culminate in some greater point, but they never did. Also, the author reads the book himself, which is something I wish happened more often for non-fiction works, but in this case his nasal, whiny voice just grates. Suffice it to say, this is the first audiobook I just could not make it through. I turned it off and listened to the radio (of all things) until I could get home and download a different audiobook!
