This is a hard book to rate cause it wasn't really a book. I can't imagine what this would have been like to actually read opposed to listen to because it's just a bunch of interviews with comedians. I loved it in that aspect, it made for a great listen and had me laughing out loud numerous times and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
started listening to this and am loving it. Terry Gross is one of my favorite interviewers and to hear her interviewing Mike Judge, the South Park guys and even people I'm not normally fans of like Sarah Silverman and Will Farrell - my mood improved just hearing it and I had several needed laugh out loud moments.
An entertaining and informative collection of interviews of primarily comedians by the NPR show Fresh Air, helmed most by Terry Gross, that fans of comedy will much enjoy. The only downside is that each clip should have been at least an hour long. Some great anecdotes and insights.

Good, but mostly I felt the snippets were interesting but just too short. In many cases I'd like to hear the full interview. Interviewees range from Tracy Morgan and Sarah Silverman to Mort Sahl and Woody Allen.

interestingly enough, this book is just the interviews of various comedians as they where were recorded on NPR. No set up or finale, good listening in the end
