Review:

."..me again. I'm sorry, but there's something about David's wit and hilarious self-revelation that makes me want to jacket-blurb all over this thing. David's writing in this 'audio-book for the eyes' is every bit as funny, honest, and observant as the man himself-and, oddly, twice as smart. It's surprising and funny dot dot dot a triumph! Oh, and David that 'dot dot dot' shouldn't be spelled out as words. It's just meant to imply I said a lot of other stuff too. Oh and obviously what I'm saying right now also isn't part of the blurb."
--Mitchell "Arrested Development" Hurwitz, co-creator, The Ellen Show

"David Cross is the Bruce Banner of our time, and this book is his big green monster. His energy is so intoxicating and uplifting that in some cultures his discarded bodily fluids are sold on the black market as an Irish coffee substitute. This is a great book."
--Maynard Keenan, lead singer of Tool and A Perfect Circle

"A few more books like this one, and we may have to get David to pull a Sen. Al Franken."
--Markos Moulitsas, founder of Daily Kos

"It is inappropriate for me to write a 'blurb' for Mr. David Cross, as he is rightly a legend--utterly fearless, absolutely brilliant, and a longtime inspiration to me. My endorsement would be like the weed endorsing the sun, which is to say: I live in the dirt and require David Cross (plus water) to live. But I can grow right through sidewalks, so that's something."
--John Hodgman, Daily Show "Resident Expert" and New York Times bestselling author of The Areas Of My Expertise

"Absurdist naysaying deepened by occasional blurts of actual emotion."
--Sarah Vowell, New York Times bestselling author of Assassination Vacation and The Wordy Shipmates

"This book is a literary 'Development' from David that I found truly 'Arresting'. I 'dev'oured every word and had to take 'a rest' after reading as I realized this book was 'ment' [sic] to be a comedy classic. This 'Arresting' comedian has 'Developed' into an amazing and insightful writer."
--Mitchell Hurwitz, producer, Golden Girls

"A relentlessly funny insight into what makes David Cross honest and brutal, but above all, hilarious...pant-wettingly brilliant."
--Simon Pegg

"One of the funniest books I've ever skimmed!"
--Paul Rudd

"David has composed a fascinating list of the most obscure names in Atlanta baseball history, and filled the spaces between with some stuff. I don't always agree with him, but he always makes me think and smile and, unlike our conversations, in this book I actually can get a word in edgewise."
--Keith Olbermann
