    " Funny. Quick read and well worth it if you like satire. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Keith | 8/20/2010

    " I don't know if Jesse Ventura ever got a hold of this one, but I'd like to let him personally know that I don't think this reflects him as much as it does the creative genious of Keillor. "

    " A rare gem. Takeoff on Jess Venture. Garrison is in fine form. "

    " The book was funny at turns, but I think I'd rather listen to Mr. Keillor on the radio. "

    " Keillor's satire about Jesse Ventura was fun, if dated. Might be more satisfying for a Minnesotan, but I enjoyed nonetheless. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 3/21/2008

    " Kept me amused one afternoon in college. I appreciated it more for having spent time in Minnesota hearing a lot about Jesse Ventura on the news. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 8/21/2007

    " It's not Garrison Keillor's best work, but it's fearless in attacking Jesse Ventura. And it's funny! "

    " This book was funny, but not THAT funny. "
