He's the inventor of Past-Tense TV (featuring "Got Smart," "Father Knew Best," and "It Was Left to Beaver"); the tireless crusader for such charities as the Center for Research into the Heebie Jeebies, Children of Parents with Bad Teeth, and the State Hospital for Those Who Felt All Right About a Year Ago; founder of the George Carlin Book Club (top titles: "How to Act Laid-Back During a Grease Fire," "Fill Your Life with Croutons," and "The Meaning of Corn"); and the only social commentator with the guts to point out that "the day after tomorrow is the third day of the rest of your life." Yes, George Carlin is back with more of what he does better than any other comic today: uproarious observations, laser-targeted crankiness, linguistic legerdemain, and inspired weirdness. ("If the shoe fits, get another just like it." "When you sneeze, all the numbers in your head go up by one.") Napalm & Silly Putty is just what his fans have been waiting for-another generous helping of notions, nonsense, assertions, assumptions, mockery, merriment, silliness, sarcasm, and, to be sure, plenty of disturbing references and toxic alienation. George wouldn't have it any other way.… (mehr)

Very funny book. He does give you a thing or two to think about as well. ( )

Not as funny as his shows, but identical in style: this is just a long stand-up routine written down.

While not generally funny, there are some good bits, some insights. ( )

So, tell me, what did you expect from a book in which George Carlin just riffs? You were expecting, maybe, Dostoyevsky? You thought there would be a calm, tranquil, cognizant discussion of life as we live it? You imagined a hint of civility and sanity?

Wrong.

This is Carlin being Carlin. That means often it is hilarious, often it is brash, and often it is a bit too much. So, that meant that I laughed often (even out loud). But it also meant that, often, I knew what he was trying to do, but it just wasn’t hitting. And a little too often there were times I heard my inner critic saying “Next!”

There will be people who read this that will be insulted, affronted, disgusted, not real happy. So, understand your tolerance before diving in. Understand that you will be assaulted. Understand that George Carlin will always be George Carlin (never accepting a role of doing the Hippy Dippy Weatherman over and over.)

If you can’t take it, don’t try it.

But, for those of us who know what we are getting into, and enjoy that same thing, then this is an entertaining (if occasionally uneven), voyage. That’s what happens when you throw George Carlin against the wall to see what sticks. ( )

I enjoyed this book, but i realized that it was just a George Carlin Show in paper format. I enjoy his comedy but due to that reason i can't give it high marks. I did notice some new content but still. ( )
