With subversive wit and intellectual honesty, Lewis examines the events of his life that shaped his anti-authoritarian point of view and developed his comedic perspective. Growing up in 1950s suburbia when father knew best and there was a sitcom to prove it, he began to regard authority with a jaundiced eye at an early age. And as that sentiment grew stronger with each passing year, so did his ability to hone in on the absurd.
True to form, he puts common sense above ideology and distills hilarious, biting commentary on all things politically and culturally relevant.

"No one is safe from Lewis Black's comic missiles." (New York Times)
i am a lewis black fan and i found this to be a refreshing departure from his going nuts on stage. His sarcasm is still as present as ever, but its not as "in your face" as his stage act. You'll find quite a lot you didnt know about the man and how he got the way he is. don't get me wrong, its still funny, but not in the way his stage show is.
Though I have always been a fan of Lewis Black, this book was disappointing. It is marginally/occasionally funny, but often stupid, and boring to listen to. I do not recommend this book.
And that's how the fight started.
Part autobiographical part stand up, this guy presents himself in such a self-depreciating way that it stays with you.
