Now, available in audio for the first time, Side Effects is narrated by Woody Allen himself. A humor classic by one of the world’s funniest writers, Side Effects is a treat for Allen fans and those just discovering how gifted he is. In classics including "Remembering Needleman", "The Kugelmass Episode", "Confessions of a Burglar", and others, Allen discusses such subjects as the nature of relativity, the UFO menace, and the predicament of modern man. Side Effects compiles 17 of Allen’s best New Yorker essays and offers wisdom and laughs in equal measure: "Ah, God, how the mind boggles when it turns to moral or ethical considerations. Better not to think too much. Rely more on the body - the body is more dependable. It shows up for meetings, it looks good in a sports jacket, and where it really comes in handy is when you want to get a rubdown."
Woody Allen’s short story collections Side Effects, Getting Even, Without Feathers, and Mere Anarchy are available separately or together as part of The Woody Allen Collection.

"Throughout my life, literally thousands of people have made me feel inadequate, but none more so than Woody Allen." (Larry David, Producer, Writer, Actor)
"Woody Allen brought modern comedy to the cinema screen." (Ricky Gervais)
I love the way Woody Allen processes information....he struggles....he stresses....he ponders. I love it!!
ecclectic dry humor
One must be a Woody Allen fan (literary and to listen to his voice and neuroses) to enjoy this series
Definitely. What could be better than listening to this brilliant and funny guy telling his stories.
Laughing out loud in the airport while listening.
While I was somewhat disillusioned by the others in the recently-released set by Woody Allen, this book stands out as the most coherent and consistent of the lot. All are expertly narrated by Woody Allen and his fantastic chocolatey voice, but while some wander confusedly, this book (written in comparitively later years) shows how his craft has matured. There were a good number of laugh-out-loud moments, and only a few "What the...?" moments. This book was the turning point where I was glad that I purchased the set.
when i was younger i loved him. so i bought it. i dont enjoy him anymore.
it couldnt. woody is woody. it was my mistake
sorry i spent my credit on this book
