There were quite a few interesting commentaries, but overall, the book wasn’t as funny or sharp as I had been expecting. I expected it to be more like Carlin’s stand-up routines, except in writing form. Many of the jokes in the book are better/funnier when told as part of a stand-up. Many of the sets suffered from the transition from performance to the page.
