His humor has lived on and I'm grateful for the recordings. They lift my spirits and make me laugh at ourselves.

I've always thought George Carlin was hilarious. Now I'm realizing that as he got older, he got meaner and went too far for my taste. His earlier stand-up performances, just as his earlier books, were irreverent to be sure, but that's part of what made them funny.
It took me several tries to get through this whole audiobook. When I finally got partway through the third book, I remembered that I wasn't crazy about some of his last stand-up shows. I did quite a bit of wincing when watching them. Well, some of the writing in his last book brought out a worse reaction in me -- no laughter because the subjects weren't funny, at least not to me.
I got it on sale and I liked at least half of it so it's still worth keeping. I'll probably even listen to it again, but I'll definitely stop listening when I stop laughing.
Makes some good observations over and over and over again. He was pursed off at the world. Even though he's been dead nine years at this writing, much of his ranting still remains relevant
the book lacked the energy to make it funny, I like George Carlin, but this was just not a good book
I love George Carlin's take on society, the fact that he doesn't stick with the norm and that he doesn't care about political correctness. I would recommend this audiobook to anyone you know that is paranoid and likes to thing about the "big world", especially if they haven't seen his stand up comedy, given that most of the content in this book stems from his stand up, or vise versa.
