FM & AM found Carlin officially poking fun at, while incorporating, his early material, performed in the lounges of America and on The Ed Sullivan Show. It also marked Carlin's metamorphosis from straight-laced to hippie, as he intentionally embraced the growing counterculture.

The recording is divided into two separate manifestations of humor, making it a sort of comedy concept album. One section focuses on references geared toward the more wholesome, commercial oriented AM-radio audience; the remaining material was intended for the hipper FM audience.

    " As always with George Carlin- he rants about everyone and everything. I was fortunate enough to see him live in Denver Co in 1998. His humor comes through in this book as if he was on on stage. RIP George. His humor was one if a kind. "

    " I love this book. So true, so funny, and so perfectly offensive in a style that only the late George Carlin can pull off. For anyone who loves his stand up, read this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian | 5/4/2011

    " George Carlin is very funny and a very intelligent guy. I love his monologues on words. However, we are about 180 degrees apart on political views. But most of all this was very funny. Change of pace for me. "

    " Funny as all of Georges work. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Natasha | 4/10/2011

    " A very disjointed book. Some parts were funny, especially the euhemism sections. A lot of the book wasn't funny or I found it be in bad or poor taste. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Corey | 4/9/2011

    " I never tire of reading George Carlin's brand of humor and his take on life... It always make me chuckle, when I am down... R.I.P. George... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sam | 3/24/2011

    " Didn't bother finishing. Style is better suited to the spoken word than the written. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Randy | 3/22/2011

    " This is good stuff, but it's 100% recycled material from his standup routines, and I mean VERBATIM. If you've already watched or listened to most of his material, you've already heard everything here. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ssbrandes | 2/27/2011

    " carlin was far funnier in person/on tv...the facial expressions added so much. the read, however, was still entertaining "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tj | 2/27/2011

    " Most of the stuff in this book comes from his on stage performances. For any true Carlin fan it's a good read but it gets a little tiring after a while because he jumps back to the same topic of euphemisms more times than I cared to count. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Arati | 2/4/2011

    " quite disappointing considering the rave reviews it got. In fact for a so-called "humour" collection, it's surprisingly not funny…unless you equate crassness with humour, which I don't. "
