If you are a fan of David Cross, this is a great road-trip listen. Funny, biting, sarcastic, subversive, and fairly cerebral humor. He doesn't dumb things down for his audience, which will be appreciated by those who like smart humor.

This book should not have been written. Where are the firemen from Fahrenheit 451 when you need them? Seriously, this is crap, the worst waste of paper and ink I've ever seen (and I've seen plenty).

Astoundingly hilarious and astoundingly brilliant. Cross is not afraid to offend, and certainly not afraid to offend the status quo. His political commentary is certainly going to be offensive to some. He is extremely irreverent and makes mincemeat of his political enemies. I'd like to say he's a modern day Lenny Bruce, but he's not as self destructive, and his goofy streak makes him more similar to David Sedaris than Bruce. But certainly the anger at political stupidity and evil is more in line with Bruce. An excellent read but not for anyone prim and proper!

I enjoyed his work on Arrested Development, Mr. Show et al, not to mention his latest series set in the UK, the Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret. I picked this up and was not disappointed. His acid observations, expletive-filled rants etc are similar to his stand-up work. Not for everyone, obviously. There is a searing intelligence in his written and spoken work, he riffs off the absurdities of life, then occassionally plunges into some dark abyss of his own making. Recommended.

I laughed so hard I cried, although if you're easily offended this book may not be for you.
