WHY IS STEVE MARTIN THE GREATEST MAN WHO EVER LIVED?! So, he was already my favorite tweeter. But, granted, I haven't actually been on twitter that long. So I've mostly read his newer tweets. And retweeted the majority of them. To put so much laughter into so few characters is a true talent and, boy, he pulls it off.

That being said, this book was simply a gift. I'll admit that I'd spent many afternoons flipping back through his old tweets and laughing again and again. But to make it all the way

I mean, let's be clear and upfront here: It's a collection of Steve Martin's tweets (with responses from his followers thrown in). I bought it mostly because I'm a huge Martin fan and felt like I needed to continue with the collection of his books and because, frankly, he's funny and it's not like I want to go to his Twitter account and just read every single tweet he's tweeted. This does me the service of him cherry-picking his favorites. Also, frankly, how is this any different from books whic ...more

The year is 1980.

Sam Weir brings Cindy Sanders to the local movie theater to see Steve Martin in The Jerk. Sam is a geeky freshman at William McKinley High School in Chippewa, Michigan. Cindy Sanders is not a geek. She is a member of the school’s cheerleading squad. When Sam gives Cindy an heirloom necklace, she takes it reluctantly and refuses to wear it because it’s old and Sam didn’t spend any money on it. Sam, arguably the least geeky of his friends, d

Let me preface this by saying that I am unabashedly in love with Steve Martin. Yes, he's older than my father. And yes, he's married. But if he wasn't - I'd so be on a crusade to snag him.

This book is a collection of Martin's hilarious tweets (and also some hilarious replies from some of his followers). I literally read this in a half hour, so saying it's light reading is a bit of an understatement - but it made me laugh out loud. A bunch.

A few of my favorite tweets:

Steve Martin was made for Twitter. His fun with words, with meanings, with deadpan. He nails it.
hated it, but here are my fav lines

This was a very amusing read. I’ve seen Steve Martin’s movies, of course, but this was a new avenue of humor to explore. Steve Martin’s tweets and his record of some of the public’s responses are real gems. It is wonderful that part of his royalties for this book go to the Steve Martin Charitable Foundation, helping to fund projects in the arts and education.
Mark Dellenbaugh
Steve is obviously a very funny man and his wit thrives in the compressed, quasi-poetic limitations of the twitter medium, but the real charm of this slender volume is the equally funny participation of his twitter followers and the clever interplay between Steve and his "co-authors".
Not a book I would normally seek out. But I saw it in a library display and picked it up. Funny! Delightfully bizarre! Made me want to download (sign up for? Join?) Twitter just to follow Steve Martin, who is a modern Renaissance man if I know one.
This is definately Steve Martin! Very humerous, and loved the responses to some of his tweets, as well. Though I'm not fond of the world of twitter, it does work well for the comedy industry.
Oh yeah, and Creepy Guy IS Creepy.
Purple, obsequious AND clairvoyant.
Steve Martin.
'Nuff said.

My wife bought this for me at the Dollar Tree yesterday. It's a very quick read, just going over the tweets of Steve Martin with some replies to his tweets included. The book is pretty funny and made me chuckle a couple of times. Some of the responses to his tweets are funnier than Martin's actual tweets. I wish there would have been more of these responses. There was nothing in this book that made me laugh until my sides hurt. It's worth reading if you have the time and are looking for somethin ...more

Steve Martin is a brilliant humorist, and it's interesting to see him take on the challenge of delivering his brand of comedy within the limitations of the tweet format. Most of his tweets had me literally laughing out loud, and a few of the responses from his followers that are included are quite funny as well (though some of them aren't).[return][return]Here's a sample taken more or less at random:[return][return]"The Red Cross is a really good cause, but one billiard ball hitting another is a ...more
I have always been a fan of Steve Martin- his writing, his comedy, his acting, his banjo playing, and his tweeting. Which is perhaps why my expectations for this collection of his tweets were so high. I have been following Steve since he first got a twitter account, and his tweets are completely hysterical, so to have them collected here, all in one place, was a really exciting prospect. But unfortunately, halfway through the book, Steve decided to start including not only his tweets, but many o ...more
What a wonderful little book. Sometimes these little gems just make reading something special.

This is a collection of "Best Of" Steve Martin tweets. It starts right from the beginning; when Martin discovered Twitter. Some of his tweets are laugh-out-loud, it also takes a fun turn when Martin tweets Christmas carol sing-a-longs, getting his followers to finish the verses.

Once he caught the bug of crowd sourcing, the book moves on to tweets that have garnered some of his favourite responses. The w
I really cannot believe the diverse ingenuity of Steve Martin sometimes. The man is funny, of course. One of the few innately funny comedians of today. He is cute, even handsome. Clearly intelligent. And he can act. More than a few successful films in his career, he has also written a handful of masterful screenplays, plays the banjo, can even sing. He is wonderful as a standup comedian, even has an interest in philanthropy. His three novels thus far show another dimension that impresses me, Sho ...more

I am a big admirer of Steve Martin's comedy, the absurdism of it of. I liked this a lot more than I thought I would. In his introduction, he goes on how there is a narrative to the book, where he learns to pay attention to his tweets. My first thought was, now there he goes again being pretensious and needy in the desire to justify his work in a literary context, I mean, really, it is a collection of tweets for god's sakes. But I did notice the change of the content from the interaction of the a ...more
Theodore Brassfield
Steve Martin is hilarious. Trying to read his collection of tweets in a sustained manner, however, left me with a tarnished sense of humor. The content did not lend itself to a cover-to-cover reading (even over a few days), but might be well suited to a bathroom.
K. L. Petersen
A very quick and entertaining read. A book full of Steve Martin's twitter feed... Brilliant! I laughed out loud and smiled through the whole thing. My only critique is that I wish it would have been longer. It's a very, very short read.
Elliot Chalom
Downloaded the ebook from the library and read the entire thing in about half an hour, laughing out loud over and over. Then immediately read it all over again. Steve Martin, you are one funny, corny, mother f--ker.
Funny! I've just now started learning how to use Twitter. Steve Martin came up with some really funny tweets. He also includes tweets from his Twitter followers, who were as funny or funnier! This was a fun read for an aspiring tweetster.
Good for some laughs when you have a spare minute or two. It's not going to get me to use twitter, though. I feel tweeting should be left to the experts - stand up comedians and songbirds.
Stefan Percy
Quick read... a couple of chuckles and laughs, but mostly a bunch of nonsense.

I am a Steve Martin fan, and for the most part, like his comedy... just not a fan of this book.
Melissa Lee-tammeus
Okay, I LOVE Steve Martin. I love his skits, his musical abilities, and his ridiculous humor. I especially love his books. This one, though . . . come on! This little book (and I mean little - it took about 20 minutes to read and I'm not kidding) is tweets he has written and collected over time. And it's also the responses he has received from those tweets, so technically, he didn't even write, say 75%, of this "book." And yes, the tweets are funny. And stupid. And silly. But book worthy? Not so ...more
Rating 3.5 This was really good for what it was (a collection of tweets). It made me chuckle and love Steve Martin more than I already did.
Y'all can skip this one. Or follow Steve on the Twitters if you like him. Best thing I can say: it was short - and occasionally a little fun.
I love Steve Martin, but this book of his funny tweets, while somewhat amusing in individual cases, is tough to read through in book form.
R.E. Warner
Probably the closest we'll ever get to see of Steve Martin's old stand-up routines. He's still as goofy as he ever was.
Funny! This is a reread... This is literally hilarious and the tweets never get old! Way to go Steve Martin!
