LOVED this book! So hilarious! Carlin is a genius in the truest sense. A friend of mine and I believe that most of the ideas Carlin has about how our government should run might actually work!

Pretty funny and irreverent. Nothing is sacred to George Carlin. He attacks religion, politics, modern language, America and the handicapped. Do not read this if you are easily offended. I enjoyed it immensely and it kept me occupied during my breaks at work all week. 4 stars.

An irreverant, unholy, but funny as hell perusal into the mind of the comic, where no one, not even Jesus, is safe.

Not as funny as I would have liked to read from George Carlin, however, the book is worth a look. It does have its moments. In case you are not a George Carlin fan, you may not like the language although it did not bother me.

True to George Carlin's insightful irreverence about anything that comes to his mind. Good for a hearty, cynical laugh before going to bed. But, not as good as Carlin's "Braindroppings," in case you have to chose one over the other.

I have loved George Carlin's legendary irreverence and side splitting sense of humor since I first saw him on the Johnny Carson show when he first started out. Johnny almost split a gut and paid him the compliment of inviting him to sit (an action which was reserved only for those guests originally intended to entertain and then leave the stage. Whenever Johnny did this, it seemed it was quite a boose to their career. George Carlin's talent for making ordinary subjects into side-splitting rediculousness can't but please most folk.

Collection of short Carlin observations on various inanities of modern life. Slightly broader in scope than "Brain Droppings", and with some genuinely funny stuff in it; however Carlin still indulges himself far too often with riffs that seem to have no purpose but to tickle the gag reflex rather than the funny bone.

Another book of funny thoughts and astute observations by George Carlin.

NOTE** If you are easily offended by coarse language, ethnic humor and just plain rude ideas, this book is not for you!!

George Carlin? He has lots to say, in a manner that is strictly for adults. Lots of swears sprinkled liberally throughout.

Where would American thought be without George Carlin?

a combination of insightful and hilarious jokes & edgy topical humor with some material that's tasteless or silly. There are glimmers of genius here. Copy is in excellent shape

Cute, witty and at times laugh out loud! Easy read, great for the beach or bathroom.

A master of observational humor, he bounces all over the place and chances are you've probably noticed the same things. Some profanity is over the top, but it never lasts log and is easily skipped over if you feel the need. I'll be requesting him again.

This book is about George Carlin's views on just about everything--very funny.

A whole book of Carlin's endless, repetitive, bitterness and anger at everything and everybody. Must have known he was on his way out of likfe and was not happy at the prospect of meeting his maker...whom Carlin did not believe in but, has since found out that God believed in him. Not worth your while reading, not funny, sad and tragic, actually.

I love Carlin. What else is there to say? :)

HILARIOUS! From the opening page to the end, the book made me laugh so many times. I love Carlin's smart alecky sense of humor. If you're thin skinned or sensitive, don't read this book because you'll be offended at so many of the things Carlin says. This book is for those of us who find humor in religion, politics, and just about everything else in life. No one is safe in this book, not even Jesus, as you can tell from the title. I loved Carlin's witty zingers. This book is a keeper.

Starred Review. There's no better way to enjoy one of Carlin's books than to hear him read it himself. With his gravelly voice, Carlin sounds like a foul-mouthed, grumpy grandfather as he riffs on everything from politics and the improper use of language to plane-boarding etiquette and the differences between the sexes. He's alternately crude ("Every evening at seven-thirty, citizens and consumers get a chance to sound off and air their complaints. Don't miss Blow It Out Your Ass!...") and outrageously funny (such as when he compares people of faith to UFO believers), and he's always irreverent ("A children's museum sounds like a good idea, but I would imagine it's not very easy to breathe inside the little glass cases"). The one topic that gets under his skin is euphemisms and, related to that, political correctness: "I can remember when I was young that poor people lived in slums. Not anymore. These days, the economically disadvantaged occupy substandard housing in the inner cities. It's so much nicer for them." Needless to say, Carlin has his comic timing down pat. His energetic reading is punctuated by conversational bits ("Hah? Whaddya think? Maybe?") and enhanced by his deft vocal variation (such as when he's narrating the "Continuing Story of Mary & Joseph"), making listeners will feel as if they've got a front-row seat at one of his comedy shows.

2 CDs. Merely OK. It's nice that he is reading it, he specializes in reciting long lists rather quickly. His humor seems to me stuck in the previous millenium.

Very little reference to our savior (unless followed by a "Christ" and an exclamation mark) or porcine products in the entire book.
