Let me start off by saying, what I saw of his comedy acts were mostly reruns on TV in the late 70's but I always thought he was so funny. I enjoyed the way he could insult someone and not get punched! I also knew he was someone I never wanted to meet in real life.
That being said I did have high hopes for the book. I was a bit disappointed to find out the letters were never sent, just ones he made up for the book. I think that really took away from it. As I am reading all these insults to people I am thinking I could do it too since I never had to send them to the people.
I think what made him funny wasn't always what he said, but the reactions he provoked from others and that was impossible to capture in this book.
It was a quick read, took me less than an hour. But it wasn't enjoyable for me. I would have to give this one a D.
