I picked up this book and plunged through it the very day I began reading it. That, however, was only because I feel the need to finish books that I start and I didn't want to be stuck reading this for more than a day. But there were some quotes in it that I found very amusing. It was certainly not my favorite book, but it was worth the handful of laughs that I got from it.

Picked up this book for a book at the used bookshop. Score! It has some scorches in it. I'm an aspiring stand-up comic and there are some great quips, zingers and kidney punches in this little book. I love insults and one liners, they're a true art form!
