Yes. Anyone interested in stand up comedy should own this. I have read multiple books on comedy, and this one is unique in it's utility. Mr. Dean will teach you what a joke really is, why people find things funny, and how to write material based on these facts.He goes on to provide direction on crafting routines, rehearsing, and performing. My only criticism is it can get pretty confusing and dry at times, but so are most "how to" books. This is excellent material and a must have for the craft.
I saw reviews saying this book is "not funny". Of course it isn't funny! This isn't a joke book!
Great, worth the investment
Allen Carr's "Easy way to stop drinking". It is the exact same message, and I know Craig Beck read this book. Some the material is repeated verbatim.
This is not a criticism. Allen Carr's book is outstanding, but it is not available in audio. If you like Allen Carr, get this book for the audio version of the message.
Don't wait - get listen to this book and you can get on to a great life free of alcohol.
