Jim will discuss everything from his affinity for hookers to stalking Black Sabbath and Alan Alda to always getting stuck with the hot girl's fat friend. He will share some of his experiences with Opie and Anthony, including his arrest on the infamous Voyeur Bus (a bus filled with naked girls that drove around Manhattan flashing passers-by). Many more heartwarming stories will be included in what is sure to be the most controversial title of 2007.
In addition to being a regular on the Opie & Anthony Show, Norton sells out comedy shows across the country. He starred on the recent HBO series Lucky Louie and was a regular on Comedy Central's Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn. He has appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Show with David Letterman, and other national shows.
Norton had this to say about his forthcoming title: "It's ironic that many of the stories revolve around prostitution, because that's where all proceeds from this...will be going. Actually, that's probably more disgusting and creepy than ironic."

Maybe I learned a little too much about his habits with "tainted" ladies, but this was a funny book. He is very down on himself sometimes, but that is his schtick. A nice listen and I would bet that it is much better than the printed version as he is the reader.
I would never try another book from this small sad man, who apparently thinks that indulging in memories of his depravity is interesting to anyone other than the therapist he needs to see.
Not listening to this idiot ever again.
I narrator voiced his memoir in a monotone, making the story even less interesting.
I felt sad that I'd wasted some time listening to this crap.
I'm not a prude - I love Lewis Black and plenty of other foul-mouthed comedians - but this book was over the top. I stopped listening before the end.
It was honest and well-written, however.
Jim Norton is certainly not an easy thing to listen to if you like things like boundaries and have a moral compass. If you are unburdened of such things, then you should absolutely eat this up! He is quite the silly goose!
I have not heard of Norton before. My first reaction to the book was disgust but I found it funny a few minutes later. Yes, the humor is very immature but none the less it made me laugh. A book that can make me laugh all the way through gets a good grade regardless of how vulgar the humor and it is very vulgar.
This book is so much funnier than the comic strip Howard Huge, that I give it a Big A! James makes it his dooty to make us loff, again and again, so much it gives me the twitchels. E-Rocks! I can't wait to listen to the rest, but the first 7 minutes have been great! If I had a Nicolini for every time I LOL'd, I'd be a fancy man....................... aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand I can only sum up with one word: Frunkus (which means "Meow" in the ancient Norden dialect).
A hysterical and honest collection of writings from Norton's life. I'm a particular fan of his self analysis of poems and letters he wrote and received growing up.
I can't believe this guy could even read a book let alone write one, but here it is. Having the author read the book to me was a special experience, especially since I usually listened to it while sitting at my desk at work. Picturing him under the porch performing oral favors for his little friends, when he was younger, made me giggle like a schoolgirl.
From time to time I'd get caught by coworkers actually laughing out loud, or saying something like "I can't believe he said that". If you're expecting it to be funny you'll be severely disappointed. His book is nothing like his stand-up act. His act is actually pretty funny. The book, on the other hand, and especially his reading of it, really made me feel sorry for him.
I hope he finally realizes that he's been looking for love on the wrong side gym floor. It's obvious to probably everyone but him, that he gets much more sexual gratification from the company of men, than anything he gets from the women in his life; and that includes all the professionals he turns to, some of whom are really men dressed as women. (a fact he pretends not to be aware of) He's spent his entire adult life trying to accept his love of penis. Even when he's with a woman, pro or otherwise, he usually has to finish up on his own, because he can't finish unless he's touching one. It's high time he started to enjoy life, and started dancing in the Monster Rain.

I'm not American, so maybe that's why I find this book the opposite of funny. It's just a self-conscious rant about masturbation and prostitution. It's sad, is all. It's not even offensive. Just sad.
