    Dan Savage has always had a loyal audience, thanks to his syndicated sex-advice column Savage Love but since the incredible global success of his It Gets Better project, his profile has skyrocketed. Savage is recognized as someone whose opinions about our culture, politics, and society should not only be listened to but taken seriously. Now, in American Savage, he writes on topics ranging from marriage, parenting, and the gay agenda to the Catholic Church, sex education, and the obesity epidemic.

    What did you love best about American Savage?

    As someone who doesn't necessarily share all of Mr Savage's views, this book had me question many of my beliefs, and gave me great ammunition for future debates with friends. While many of the points he raises are defensive and come as a rebuttal to an assumed "Republican" or "Christian" attack, you can hardly help but agree and enjoy the entertainment value of this book.

    Everyone wants to escape their boring, stagnant lives full of inertia and regret. But so few people actually have the bravery to run - run away from everything and selflessly seek out personal fulfillment on the other side of the world where they don’t understand anything and won’t be expected to. The world is full of cowards. Tim Anderson was pushing 30 and working a string of dead-end jobs when he made the spontaneous decision to pack his bags and move to Japan.

    JOSEPH says: "Tune In Tokyo- a very enjoyable memior"
    "Of all the David Sedaris wannabes, he comes close"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Very easy to listen to, you can just zone in and zone out and not miss the actual story (mainly because these are little unconnected anecdotes). Perfect for quick city rides, because you can just listen to it for 7-8 minutes and still get some entertainment out of it.


    Any additional comments?

    Out of all the David Sedaris wannabes, this one actually comes closest to being occasionally funny. He is from Raleigh, NC - Check. He is gay - Check. He travels to Japan without speaking much of the language - Check. It won't have you roll around laughing, but good entertainment value.
