It was decent, but I was getting a little restless in the last third of the book. The writing style was a bit annoying with short choppy sentences.

    Even though I read a lot, I don't post in here too often. It seems like most people read fiction and I read, almost exclusively, autobiographies (or bios).

    But, I recently started a book that was too good not to share and since it wasn't quite a "biography", I figured it might be a good choice to offer up. I just got Tasteful Nudes by comedian Dave Hill and it is absolutely hilarious. A pretty quick read that will make you laugh out loud. Can't wait to see what else is in store because everything has been great so far.

    I love bios and autobios, you should post more! For some reason my audiobook selection is almost entirely from that category.

    This one isn't on Audible, but I still read a lot so I put it on my wishlist.

    Are you on Goodreads so I can add more selections to my list?

    Never even heard of Goodreads. Is it something I should look up?

    I will definitely try to post more here. Glad to know there's a least a small segment of auto/bio here. haha

    He was on Adam Carolla's podcast on Friday and was very funny:

    I think I will check out his book sometime. I dig these comedic memoirs. The last one I read was Mike Birbiglia's Sleepwalk With Me, which was good. (Really looking forward to seeing him live in October.)
