    Story
    "A little less funny then I expected, but good."

    This would be one of the few audio book that I expect would be MUCH better on audio then in writing, because Jeff narrates, and does his character's voices.

    It was a bit more "history of me, in a non funny way" then I was expecting, but I'm still glad I listened. There were still some good funny parts as well.

    Story
    "Thoroughly entertaining memoir of a ventriloquist"

    What an enjoyable story, I couldn't stop listening. Jeff Dunham is not only great at his art, he is also great at writing his story, and a terrific narrator. Actually, Jeff isn't the only narrator - Walter, Achmed and the characters he created, humorously interrupt Jeff. Sometimes I just want to listen to a book for fun. Sometimes I need to break away from history and the classics. Jeff Dunham's story is just such a book. I found it to be be thoroughly entertaining, humorous, and interesting. Ventriloquism is a disappearing art. Having grown up enjoying many "vents", Jeff's jargon - it brought me back to my childhood, the good old days. All I can add is that I loved this book and I think you will top. Take time out for some pure fun and download Jeff's story. You will not be disappointed.

    "Loved it!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Ordered this book on a whim before starting out on a 5 hour drive. Kept me in stitches and the made the drive seem like a drive to the market rather than a cross-state trek.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I keeeel you!! If you've seen/heard Achmed, you'll know what I mean. If not, buy the book and enjoy!


    What does Jeff Dunham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The voices of the characters.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A look into the mind(s) of a (nearly) schizophrenic comedic ventriloquist.

    What did you love best about All By My Selves?

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book and hearing about Jeff Dunham's journey through life


    What about Jeff Dunham’s performance did you like?

    I loved the fact that Jeff Dunham portrayed all of his characters in the book and argued with himself too.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was moved by Jeff's chapter about his divorce and his tribute to his daughters. It was very touching.

    "Insight into Jeff's life, career and success"

    This book is the life story of a very talented guy, who states that with prayer from his parents, a few key opportunities and a lot of talented people helping him has become one of the world's top performers.

    Jeff opens up about his experiences and shares his personal views and appreciation for all the great opportunities he has had in his career. Jeff started at an early age, it isn't by chance he is successful. Being a grounded person, who has a clarity about life really makes for a great story.

    A talented guy with a big heart.

    "story of a nice guy"
    Any additional comments?

    Dunham tells his life story with the occasional help of his characters. The snark I'm used to in his standup isn't much here -- instead, he tells things sincerely. It's calm, but not boring.

    "The Jeff Dunham Story as only Jeff can tell it"

    I have been a fan of Jeff Dunham since the early 90's and was interested about his autobiography. I was moved by Jeff's openness in sharing his life story. Where many may try to only show the good side, Jeff shared the good, the bad, and the ugly of his life's journey. Only Jeff Dunham could have performed this audio book as there are many sidebar comments from his characters scattered throughout the book. The comments made in character just do not translate as well in the print version as hearing Jeff do his comic schtick. If you are a Jeff Dunham fan, I highly recommend this book.
