    more from this reviewer

    enjoyed it all, laughed out loud at times

    I'm a big fan of his show and I really enjoyed the book. If you don't like the show, there is no way you will like the book. If you have not seen the show, think of a cross between Steven Wright and Dave Barry.

    Many chapters were very clever and some made me laugh out loud. My favorites: "Bee sting" = brilliant! "Frustrating uses of etc" = genius. "Fruit vendor" = insanely funny. "Christmas Carol deleted scene" = hilarious, reminiscent of Dave Barry's Mr. Language Person. "Robot test" = silly but I like silly. "Products" = Dilbertesque. "Epigrams" = many t-shirt-worthy. "One phone call" = maybe cliché, but I laughed. "More drawings" = some good, although I always preferred his live two-handed drawings the most. "My powers" = powerful, considering. "Spanish teacher" = been there, done that. "The word awards" = not for lowbrows.

    The book is not like watching one of his shows, it's like watching two.

    My new favorite book

    Once again Demetri expresses his mad genius skills, like in his episodes, now through book format. Keep up the good work.

    Was hilarious, a great read

    Not only is Demetri Martin able to write tremendously funny material, he is able to do so in a way that also allows his tremendous talents as a performer and his evident genius shine in this book. He, I believe, is one of the few people who have mastered the art of making us laugh and think at the same time, and this book is an excellent example of that. A must-read.
