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.Was this review helpful?

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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

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.Was this review helpful?
