Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nam | 2/8/2014

    " George Carlin is so irreverent and abrasive you can't help but love him! This book is just a whole bunch of Carlin's ideas/wisdom/rants about everything from "No Smoking" signs to Canadians to Boy Scouts. I highly recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Greg | 2/7/2014

    " Classic Carlin. Definitely has to be heard, in his own voice, to be fully appreciated. Constantly found myself referring to things I'd just heard as applicable to my current life. So astute. A little perverse (sometimes without reason, thus the missing star) but overall excellent! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Floyd | 2/5/2014

    " It took me several months to finish this book. I've always found Carlin to be extremely intelligent and funny, but this one just didn't do it for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy | 2/2/2014

    " so damn funny, i love carlin "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alsohn | 1/25/2014

    " ON the plane? F**k you! I'm getting IN the plane! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 M Pereira | 1/21/2014

    " Hilarious, bizarre and a bit non-sequitur humour. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 George Mckee | 1/20/2014

    " Classic Carlin. This guy never stopped thinking. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mariaan | 1/20/2014

    " some bits were funny, some were just weird, some made no sense, but do love the title!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Natasha | 1/20/2014

    " 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. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Josh Davidson | 1/17/2014

    " meh...a few good laugh but I mostly wanted it to end. GC was a funny dude but this book was sort of dumb. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brendan | 1/16/2014

    " Like a non-stop comedy routine. Pretentious, yes. Boring, no. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 J. | 12/21/2013

    " It was very hit or miss... spoken humor doesn't always translate so well to the written word. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adriane | 12/8/2013

    " So this book was consistent all the way through. Some parts were very funny but mostly it was really surreal. I enjoyed it but it wasn't a book that I just couldnt put down so it's a solid three. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacy | 11/23/2013

    " Aside from his booger humor, George Carlin is pretty darn funny. I love the 10 Commandments bit! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cantara Christopher | 11/16/2013

    " Carlin, you were the greatest. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erin Neill | 10/25/2013

    " I think George was caught up in his cynical, old man "everything in this world makes me cranky" mode......not as funny as his earlier books. There were a few funny chapters. But, the book was mainly long winded and smelling of old man coffee breath. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Darla | 10/8/2013

    " I really wanted to like this, but it wasn't as funny as I thought it would be. He really pushed the crude humor to far for my taste. I cringed in multiple places, especially toward the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diane Kennicker | 7/26/2013

    " George Carlin is spot on with today's politically correct speech and softening of vocabulary to make people feel warm and fuzzy. It's a fun book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stacey | 5/17/2013

    " Seemed forced and disjointed. Not his best. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Miao Liu | 1/6/2013

    " Maybe it's the cultural difference,however,I didn't found this book so funny as supposed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mihai Criveti | 12/9/2012

    " Covers a lot of his work over the years in short "burts" of "wisdom". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 8/28/2012

    " too funny! I'm almost done but some of the passages I had to read again. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Vicki | 7/23/2012

    " I brought this with me on a trip thinking it would be a funny, quick read. I couldn't even finish it (and I seldom leave a book unfinished!), and it wasn't funny at all. Not Carlin's best material. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cayr | 3/25/2012

    " Carlin is just as good in print as he is doing live stand up. Somebody give this guy a chill pill - he's ANGRY. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Polymathic J | 2/12/2012

    " I love Carlin, but this book was pretty hit and miss. Basically, if you're familiar with his stand-up, then most of the material in this book won't feel especially new and exciting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenny | 7/1/2011

    " If your human, read this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 5/17/2011

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 5/7/2011

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 4/25/2011

    " 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. "
