It was uneven, compared to Carlin on video, which is almost uniformly funny to me. When I read the chapters about UFOs vs. Christianity and The Two Commandments, I laughed. I think my 14 year-old daughter may be channeling George Carlin.

Amusing and absurd, as you expect of the late comedian.

Over the top funny, witty, and extremely irreverent and not for those easily offended as he is definitely in everybody's face especially religious, politically correct.

For a George Carlin comedy book, this was not very funny. More of an observation of life, with some silliness thrown in. I was disappointed with it.

Watch YouTube clips and skip this. Sometimes feels like it's simply a diary dump with no editing whatsoever. Not all of Carlin's musings are amusing, and you may actually walk away disappointed at some of his most mean and disparaging comments, at least I did.

The book is worth reading, if only for a few very funny and 'right to the point' parts: A Modern Man; most of the Euphemisms, especially Food Lingo; The Two Commandments; Guys & Dolls; Cars as Personal Billboards; and some of the Bits and Pieces. That's approximately 50 pages out of 295 page book. Skip the rest, unless you love the 'toilet humor' and/or pointless musings.
