This book serves as a good example of what happens when one lets one's brilliant accomplishments in one field cause one to think, "I must be brilliant in all fields!" The guy is indisputably a brilliant fiction author. He needs to take an economics class before writing this sort of thing, though. It reminds me of watching my old professors get drunk and blather on about stuff they knew nothing about in other fields.

This book was a very interesting insight into Mr. Vonnegut's mind. A lifetime of experiences which he shares in short little musings. I really enjoy his other works so I was excited to find this book of his. He shares his thoughts on society, the future, politics, just about everything and shares anecdotal stories from his past that helped shape him into the man and author he has become. If you like his other books I would recommend giving this book a read. This was not a difficult read at all.

A classic author. This book is full of satire but also humorous and tender. A collection of letters about the soul of America today, published in 2005.

I love Vonnegut. This seemed to be more a rant against Bush than his usual humor, though.

I watched a PBS interview with Kurt Vonnegut and they were talking about this book. I found him to be a very interesting and satirical man. I had never heard of him before and was intrigued by watching him.

There were many times throughout the book that I thought to myself "that is exactly what I was thinking." I liked that he was not afraid to say what he felt and I got the feeling that he didn't care who heard him.

This book lead me into my quest for reading all Kurt Vonnegut...more I watched a PBS interview with Kurt Vonnegut and they were talking about this book. I found him to be a very interesting and satirical man. I had never heard of him before and was intrigued by watching him.

This book lead me into my quest for reading all Kurt Vonnegut I can get my hands on. I am looking forward to reading much more in the future.

Ah, Vonnegut. What an incredible author. I don't always agree with him politically, but he has a grasp of the human condition that is spot on. His amazing prose is sprinkled with wit and humor (often gallows humor), while at the heart of his message, he holds up a mirror and dares us to confront life and ourselves as we really are.
