A really funny book. Kinda reminds you of Die Hard when Bruce Willis calls 911 and the lady tells him this line is for emergencies only and he says NO I WANTED TO ORDER A PIZZA YOU *((*$&!!! This book is very very funny, and some things should not be read around children. If you have anyone in dispatching, law enforcement, or fire fighters, or EMTs this book will make them laugh and recall their own stupid calls of their own!

This was an entertaining book, I read it in the car on a long trip. The end changes gears and provides serious commentary about the 911 system, about the bomb explosion at the Atlanta Olympics. Very interesting. The review above seems to be describing a different book from what I read.

This is one funny book. If anyone needs to know why our 911 operators 'goof up' or seem agitated when a person calls for help....just read this little book. You will fell like sending all 911 operators a sympathy card and have a deeper appreciation for both their calm when answering and for keeping the job longer than 24 hours!

This is a very funny book. I read a couple of the calls out loud to friends. They cracked up laughing. This is a book for anyone who wants a good laugh.

Absolutely horrible. The book repeats itself and the one liners are the most stupid I've ever heard.

Leland Gregory, coauthor of AMERICA'S DUMBEST CRIMINALS, follows up that wacky best-seller with this collection of weird and hilarious calls made to 911 emergency services all over the country. These people need help--but not 911 help!

Now, we don't always know where these take place, but it appears that most of these happened in states that voted for Trump. Pretty funny stories, sometimes kind of sad stories.
