He was the inventor of Past-Tense TV (featuring Got Smart, Father Knew Best, and It Was Left to Beaver); the tireless crusader for such charities as the Center for Research into the Heebie Jeebies, Children of Parents with Bad Teeth, and the State Hospital for Those Who Felt All Right About a Year Ago; founder of the George Carlin Book Club (top titles: How to Act Laid-Back During a Grease Fire, Fill Your Life with Croutons, and The Meaning of Corn); and the only social commentator with the guts to point out that the day after tomorrow is the third day of the rest of your life.

Yes, George Carlin is here with more of what he did better than any other comic: uproarious observations, laser-targeted crankiness, linguistic legerdemain, and inspired weirdness. (If the shoe fits, get another just like it. When you sneeze, all the numbers in your head go up by one.) Napalm & Silly Putty is just what his fans have been waiting for - another generous helping of notions, nonsense, assertions, assumptions, mockery, merriment, silliness, sarcasm, and, to be sure, plenty of disturbing references and toxic alienation. George wouldn't have it any other way.

    " I miss him already--he could always make me laugh "

    " It's fitting that I read/reread Carlin's three books recently. The first is the best, though that may be largely because there is some repitition between the three volumes, which is a little annoying. Still, Carlin's best to see/hear rather than read. The delivery just enhances it. "

    " Well not bad "

    " so. freakin. hilarious. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tom Menner | 1/31/2014

    " Unfortunately I think George found it more difficult to mine old routines or come up with pithy sayings for his books, so after "Brain Droppings" I think the laughs and insights give way to grumpiness and cantankerous writing. There are still a few gems here and there, but not a strong effort. "

    " Carlin fans will love it. Non-Carlin fans can go to hell! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deepak Nare | 1/16/2014

    " Quick witted, hilarious and outlaw. George Carlin at his best in this flawless logical, 'on your face' comedy. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bob | 1/12/2014

    " auto racing: "a perfect marriage of fast cars and slow minds" "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Celine | 1/7/2014

    " definitely not as good as the other title by the same author. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Matthewmartinmurray murray | 12/12/2013

    " If you like his stand up comedy you'd like this. It reads exactly the same as his stand up verbatim. It would be easier to just actually watch the stand up as you get to see his mannerisms as well. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Donna | 11/29/2013

    " This one not so funny. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tiffany | 11/22/2013

    " I read this book on my Kindle during my commutes to the New Campus. I laughed out loud a lot - which drew a lot of quizzical glances at the pages of obscenities appearing on the screen. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Giovanni Calabro | 9/19/2013

    " This book is George Carlin's stream of consciousness. There are some fantastic nuggets in here like George Carlin Book titles, "How to Fillet a Panda," or "Daddy drinks because you cry," and other bizarre yet hilarious anecdotes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 9/17/2013

    " A good read but somewhat disjointed...which I imagine was the point. Sooo...mission accomplished. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeremy Stephens | 2/11/2013

    " Disturbingly funny George Carlin humor at its finest. "

    " Some good, funny stuff. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lukas Szrot | 12/21/2012

    " Lmfao! You are missed, Mr. Carlin. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meghann | 11/27/2012

    " When it's necessary to laugh, do it up with George. If you are offended by curse words probably not then. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joshua | 10/16/2012

    " George Carlin is funny funny funny! His honesty is scathing and I certainly winced a couple of times, but still funny. This book is filled with lots of wisdom, and a lot of silliness. A fun read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul | 9/10/2012

    " I think of the three, this one is George's Best. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Manny | 8/12/2012

    " I once laughed so hard at this book that I had to stop and question myself, " What the fuck made you wait so long to read this book!?" "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike | 12/29/2011

    " Just more proof that the man is a genius. Although his stuff is much funnier when he's saying it rather than when you're reading it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carla Cornish | 12/8/2011

    " Love,love,love him! Cracks me up! We lost a great comic when he died! "
