Publisher's Summary

The ultimate meditation book, not to be grandiose...

Take a hilarious, healing journey with Stuart Smalley as he careens down the road to recovery.

For one entire year, Stuart recorded an affirmation a day...except when he had taken to his bed (but that's okay)...and the result is the most entertaining and indispensable meditation book ever.

From program wisdom (Denial ain't just a river in Egypt! December 1) to survival tips (When I go home to visit my family, I will stay in a motel! September 26) to some good sound practical advice (I am entitled to file for an extension on my income taxes! April 15th), Stuart's affirmations will empower you!

Work, friendship, love, spirituality, codependency, self-esteem, acceptance...Stuart deals with it all. And as you share his ups and downs, his triumphs and shame spirals, you will come to see the ultimate truth of Stuart's March 21 affirmation: Today I will laugh - at least once!

Best Prank Audiobk EVER. Play THIS IN THE CAR!

Not only is this great comedy, but it was designed with the conceits of the audiobook listener in mind. You MUST play this in the car, while you're driving, for full impact of the punchline. I just love it, I love Stuart Smalley, and I love Al Franken. I'm so mad he's in the Senate now and can't do a sequel!

Loved it!

Loved it! I know he is a Senator now, but he should seriously consider resurrecting this character.

Hilariuos

I laughed my head off. And made the mistake of trying to listen to a meditation audiobook later on. I could not stop laughing. Franken has hit the nail on the head here.

For those who don't like his politics... forget that stuff, this is just a good time with his Stuart Smalley character. I liked how he worked the audio presentation into the presentation. It wasn't just Franken reading from his book.

Whoops -- I am misleading you

I wrote the other review -- but then I listened to the clip and I realize that this even though this audiobook has the same name as the book-book Al Franken wrote, the audiobook is a completely different product.

I love the book-book, and the movie, and this audiobook is more like "an hour with Stuart Smalley" -- and from the clip you can tell that it is very very funny!

Behind the Scenes Look of an Audiobook Production

Very funny product. The audiobook features Franken as his Stuart Smalley character in the recording studio trying to do the audiobook version of his Stuart Smalley book. What makes it quite amusing is that this is being done in "one take" and Stuart can't seem to get it right. The first 30 minutes are golden, but the tape does drag at the end (the one joke concept does hit its limit). Overall its very enjoyable, even if you're not a fan of Franken's political ideology.

Non-stop laughter

I suppose you have to like this humor but if you do, you'll laugh continuously. Al Franken's spoof on the self-help industry is priceless. I can listen to it over and over again.

Maybe, not what you think....

If you like Will & Grace you will love this audio. Envision "Jack" reading a guided visualization. It is truly amusing. I had never heard of this author, but am glad I got to hear this. It was a great pick-me-up for a rainy afternoon. If you are looking for a series of serious, relaxing visualizations, this is not the tape you want. If you are into relaxation tapes and are ready for an amusing break from routine, grab this one up!!

Endlessly good

I don't know how many times I've listened to this but it gets better every time. Al franken's ability to encapsulate the experience of program in all shapes and forms is just outstanding. I am so happy about this purchase.

Classic Stuart Smalley

This is NOT the audiobook of the actual book. There was originally a "meditation tape by Stuart Smalley" that went with the book, and I assume this is it.

If you like Al Franken's Stuart Smalley character from SNL, and/or have ever known a self-help fanatic or 12-step-program abuser, you'll enjoy this.
