The tweets in this book are funny, of course--it's Steve Martin. He's a genius. But this book is a blatant cash-in. It will provide 20 minutes of amusement you could have gotten for free by following Martin on Twitter. It might be okay as a gift for an unwired friend.

Saw Steve Martin on Good Morning America discussing this book based on tweets. Out of the approximately 59 pages, I think I laughed twice. I have always thought his quick wittedness was endless. This book stopped my thought. I will read sampler pages before investing in any further of his works.

It would have been cheaper to just follow Steve Martin on Twitter. I feel like a fool for buying that book!

Steve Martin gets it right. He uses todays computer communication lingo and reveals the absurdity of it all!

It's as if you are sitting down with a cup of coffee and Steve Martin in your kitchen! Worth the buy!

I thought it entertaining but it wasn't what I thought it would be. Just a bunch of tweets from his and other's phones? I did laugh, and find it comical, however. And interesting to know how the stars think. The funniest part was how he referred to his wife. I recommended my friend read it.

Not only is it funny, you feel like he is reading it to you. Personable and delightful. He talks about getting tweets back and running to his wife to show her. It was easy to imagine him doing that.

My marriage bed was unstable. But simply placing a copy of "Make That Ten" underneath the short leg fixed everything! Thanks Steve!
