Publisher's Summary

Everyone's favorite houseguest who never left, Leon Black (played by award-winning comedian JB Smoove from HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm), drops his wisdom and good-bad advice for the masses. Learn the secrets Larry David has gleaned from the Falstaff of television. Live your best Leon. Bring the ruckus.

Aristotle. Gandhi. Lao Tzu. Dr. Ruth.

Amateurs.

For centuries, bespectacled dorks have pored over the scrolls of the ancients, read tea leaves, and looked to the stars for philosophy, wisdom, and advice. While some people have probably offered good advice, and others offer bad advice, Leon is here to offer his brand of good-bad advice. These are the musings of a master genius spitting out the secrets of the universe - to help you become just like him.

Be forewarned: in opening this audiobook and Leon's mind, you need to be prepared for straight talk. The kind of unfiltered blunt straight talk that pounds on your door; invites itself in; makes itself at home; helps itself to your food, your security pass code, and your expensive organic beet juice; and finally makes itself comfortable on that twin bed in your guest room. All the while you think you're helping it - but really it's helping you help yourself!

Because that's how this book doozit.

Leon Black: He ain't wrong...he just ain't right.

Tears of Laughter

I wish I could enter JB Smoove's mind for just one day. Leon Black provided some of my favorite Curb Your Enthusiasm moments - I would rewind his scenes with Larry again and again. And so I bought this book with some trepidation, half-believing there was no way JB could sustain Leon's wise absurdity for 5 hours. Well, there was no need for concern.

I usually listen to books on my commute but I had to turn this one off because I was laughing too hard. The tears streaming down my face and the jerking of my body were disconcerting to other commuters.

Highly recommended.

Funny but useless

If you want to laugh it is a good listen but if you want actual knowledge this book is not worth your time.

Leon for President!

Hilarious! Busted out laughing like a lunatic several times while listening to it on a flight. Glad he went on Howard Stern' s show to promote it or I would have missed it.

JB Smoove as Leon could be an entire TV show by itself, can't wait for the next one.

Hilarious!

It’s like a long scene of Leon’s rants with Larry. I had it on when picking up my niece who doesn’t watch the show, she was in tears laughing. Hearing Leon’s voice rather than reading it the old fashioned way I’m sure added a lot too.
