A Job For Joe is an enigma wrapped in a phenomenon and topped off with nice hair. A side-splitting CV and a riotous resume, it's awash with agonizing alliteration. You'll laugh until you cry. Or you'll skip the laughter altogether and just sob uncontrollably. This is the best book Lee has ever written. This is the only book Lee has ever written. After 56 jobs in 60 years he needs a break. You owe it to his creditors to buy this book.

Reviewed by Anne-Marie Reynolds for Readers' Favorite A Job for Joe by Joe Paris Lee takes a humorous look at Joe's working life. Joe has had no less than 56 jobs in 60 years, something of a record perhaps. A Job for Joe takes us into the roller-coaster ride of his attempts at a “career” or several. Hold on tight as Joe’s coaster crawls its way to the top and then flings its readers into the most hair-raising journey of their lives. Far from being a slacker who cannot hold down a job, Joe juggles his way through a number of different jobs, each one with its own story and each one with the same eventual outcome. Readers, be prepared to be entertained in a seriously big way. A Job for Joe by Joe Paris Lee is one of the funniest and best books I have read in a long time. He is a seriously good writer, very funny and has an amazing way with words. I cannot remember ever having laughed so much at a book. This was one of those 'can’t put down' books. I just wanted to see what scrapes he got into next and I wanted to see what the eventual outcome was. As well as being a humorous look at Joe's working life, it’s also a lesson of sorts – well, several lessons actually. You will find yourself thinking hard in between picking yourself up off the floor from laughing. I would love to read more books from Joe, especially if they are as funny and thought-provoking as A Job for Joe.
