Perfectly decent essays and fairly funny, but it never crosses over into laughing-out-loud territory. In fact, if you have an even somewhat interesting life, you probably have anecdotes on par with or better than these.

I think the failure of a lot of reviewers to give Crosley that extra star is due to the feeling that any fun and clever person could publish a book at least as good as this if someone gave them the chance.

It's hard not to be a little jealous. She's cute as a bug and someone gave her a book deal, too. *Sigh*
