really liked it

What can I say; George Carlin was one of my personal heroes. His wit was unmatched, observations sharp, and he had balls to go places other comedians wouldn’t dare. ‘Last Words’ documents his journey, from his troubled youth, to his troubled adulthood, to his slightly less troubled old age. In his own words, this autobiography describes the ups and downs of his career or lack thereof. Personally, I found it fascinating, although he did come off as a troubled asshole for great portions of his life. But separating the art from the artist, I did enjoy his descriptions of the world surrounding him and the processes that influenced him. Overall, this was not a particularly humorous book or a montage of his art, but a documentation of the person behind it. An absorbing read of one of the most compelling comedians of all time.
