"The Ants Are My Friends" was the best of 3 I purchased on the same topic, the other 2 being "Hold Me Closer, Tony Danza" and "Hit Me With Your Pet Shark". The other 2 were very flat in that they only listed the actual and mistaken lyrics. In this book, Martin's comments as to how the mistaken lyrics change the original meaning are half the fun. Print quality is much better too - hardcover and better quality paper compared to the other 2.
