As I could not find it here, I would just add my review.

 

Well... 

 

This book is great. It is funny, real, humorous and good. Even without the audio, you could hear him speak to you through the words on the pages.

 

It is about his speech and the way he writes and the way he reads.


He reads. 

 

He is a reader. He understand reader. 

 

Like him, I bought a lot of books because they are simply on sales and I need books to fill my reading time, which is all the time I have if I'm not doing something else that demands my attention.

 

Reading it make you feel like you know this man, this writer, more so than your acquaintances that you force yourself into laughing at their jokes even when they are not funny. 

 

Good goodies.
