Stephen Colbert is right, “I share a healthy skepticism of the printed word.” And, in light of that, I am going to make a momentous announcement:
You should not read this book.
Do not buy this book, do not borrow it from a socialist structure (aka library), don’t even steal it from someone else’s bathroom when you’re at a dinner party.
Do not crack the cover of this book.
INSTEAD, spend the extra bucks and get this book on CD. I initially heard this book when it first came out, as read by Stephen Colbert, and revisiting it in text format was a joy hearing so many of my favorite passages in his own voice. But as funny as this book is, it just pales to hearing Stephen reading it. His chapters on sex as well as pets (particularly his dog Gipper) are so good because not only are the jokes fantastic, but Colbert has a perfect sense of timing, so he delivers them dead-on.
Now, if it’s read the book or nothing, then definitely read this book. It’s awesome. But if you can and have the time, definitely listen to him read it!
