I went with 3 stars for the following reasons:
1. The stories about the drug use just weren't funny. They were sad, and messed up.
2.The stories from when he was a kid didn't feel very genuine, especially the one about the musical instruments.

Aside from the above, a lot of the stories were hilarious. I know he tends to make a lot of it up, but they are the perfect blend of sarcasm, cynicism, and just plain silly. I will probably read some of his other books.
