Who copyedited this thing? And who hired the copyeditor? How is it that these people have jobs? This book contains so many squinting modifiers, misplaced commas, and "it's" that should be "its," you feel like you're reading the work of a YouTube commenter.

Absolutely no developmental editorial work has been done; this is a disjointed, slapped-together collection of bits and bobs. I wish someone had asked, "Wait, is this actually a book? Does it hold together? Is it cohesive? Does each sentence make sense, and do sentences follow each other in logical order?" before sending the ms to the printer.

I love David Cross and wish he'd been better served by his publisher.
