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!

Awfully disappointed in brevity of book. Got a few laughs.

This book is too funny.

Silly book of tweets from Steve Martin, includes even sillier responses from his followers. I was in a bad mood, then I read this book I had recently checked out from the library and I laughed out loud. Laughed until I had tears in my eyes. What more could I ask?

Steve Martin is a brilliant humorist, and it's interesting to see him take on the challenge of delivering his brand of comedy within the limitations of the tweet format. Most of his tweets had me literally laughing out loud, and a few of the responses from his followers that are included are quite funny as well (though some of them aren't).Here's a sample taken more or less at random:"The Red Cross is a really good cause, but one billiard ball hitting another is a really good cause and effect.""REPORT FROM JURY DUTY: Other jurors are stupid. They don't believe in 'hexes.' Plus, they want me to put my magazines away.""Today is National Marijuana Day. A day when...uh...wow, Wolf Blitzer is SO funny."My only complaint is, for the price, it would be nice if the book had a bit more content. It's small and thin, somewhere in between one of those little gift books and a regular trade paperback and only a hundred pages with maybe about two or three tweets per page. So the list price is perhaps a bit steep for what's basically a glorified gift book, even if it is by Steve Martin. But if you're a Steve Martin fan like I am, it's worth it, especially if you can pick it up on sale like I did. :)

This book is a great collection of some of Steve Martin's funniest tweets and responses from his followers as well. Some of the responses are even funnier than Steve's original tweets, and he admits to this as well. It's a quick read (only 150 pages) with some cute illustrations along the way. It's interesting to see how Steve used the 130 character maximum to create comedic tweets. Part of the proceeds from the book also go to charity. If you're a fan of Steve Martin, I highly recommend checking this out.

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!
