Overview

Everyone's Crazy Here...

In his twenty years on the radio, the mononymous Lionel ("one name, like God," as he is fond of saying) has forged his reputation as an irreverent, ribald, take-no-prisoners analyst of culture, politics, and the world at large. Now America's favorite contrarian takes to the page with this hilarious user's guide to our country and culture.

In Everyone's Crazy Except You and Me ... And I'm Not So Sure About You, Lionel offers a collection of hilarious and insightful observations on life, liberty, and the pursuit of alien life forms. From the sublime (Why do so many of us believe in God?) to the ridiculous (Why did he run over his sister's hair with the vacuum cleaner?), Lionel takes his readers on a riotous ride through his world, and ours. A former prosecutor, Lionel examines our greatest national oxymoron—criminal justice. He hates hate crimes, and argues against drug criminalization and the Son of Sam laws. He's also an indefatigable defender of the First Amendment who nevertheless believes that men shouldn't drink mojitos or wear socks with sandals. And lest you think he just picks on the Right, rest assured that Lionel has plenty to say about Lefties, Centrists, and even barristas.

No subject is off limits here. No group is immune—not conservatives, not women, and especially not American Homo sapiens.

Consider these imponderables:

  • Why today's acrobatic professional wrestler is inferior to the beer-bellied hulk of the sixties
  • Why Hazmat suits are worn more than once, but not wedding gowns
  • Why women can't tell jokes
  • Why you should never drink anything you can't spell
An infectious, irresistible, and possibly persuasive book that is bound to entertain and inform, Everyone's Crazy Except You and Me ... And I'm Not So Sure About You is the perfect read for anyone who questions the state of our national mental health. Void where prohibited by law.

    Great Book

    The person who criticized this book because of "the big words" is exactly the kind of person Lionel (aka Michael Lebron) casts derision upon throughout a number of its chapters. Not only is this book laugh-out-loud funny, but it's informative as well. I highly recommend it, as I do his syndicated radio show on Air America radio.

    Lionel Made Me Laugh...And Think

    I have been a Lionel fan for 20 years. Please read this informative, yet entertaining, book. I laughed so hard it hurt when I read that Lionel vacuumed his sister's hair in the Hoover. I also enjoy that Lionel is a former prosecutor so the book is filled with useful information.

    Lionel-Fool me once shame on ......

    The best parts are on the cover-read them and put it back. He uses obscure words redundantly in his first go at authorship. He should look up the word synonym and not select words to impress. Also, he uses the obligatory French and Latin phrases without the slightest clue to their meaning. If you like this type of writing, you will love this book. It could be distilled down to about ten pages of good humor. Cochise, arguendo, atavistic, hematoblast, thanaticians, antidiluvian, punctilious, lycanthropy, disquisition, are just a few of the speed bump words in this book. Only Noah and family know the meaning of 'antidiluvian'. If for any reason you must have this book, wait a week and it will be in the bargain bin.
