You should read this book because Tim Boyle is the sexiest man alive.
If that is not enough reason then you must be a guy–a fat guy who wants to kill sexy men. All the more reason why you should buy the book. Why? Find it out on Chapter 6. Or maybe it was 7.
All kidding aside, this book is a must-read for anyone who had fought and lost. That means everyone past Justin Bieber fan age. With a bare-all, punch-in-the-gut combos writing style that could either make you laugh out loud or whimper in agony, this book is as much funny as it is sad. And the combination is lethal, completely fulfilling what it has set out to do.
DO NOT expect for glory moments. Cringe-worthy, laugh-out-loud, “Oh shi–that’s just like me!”, “Uugh, yuck!”, “Gosh. I’m glad it’s not me”, “Awww, poor Timmy, he’s so young to have LUNG CANCER…”, “Oh, that’s so true!”, “WHAT THE F^#@!”–those are the moments you should watch out for.
It’s like a Friday night My Life Sucks session with your long lost crazy (in a good way) friend.
Hilarious, wise, gut-wrenching, a REAL book with as much forgivable faults (i.e. minor glitches in grammar, no actual photos of the author taking it on-stage–bah…) as a real person–this is a book both stand-up comedians and people who haven’t even seen the insides of a comedy club (i.e. me) will enjoy. If you have/had a dream and did/doing all you could to reach that very elusive star, this book’s also for you. If you’re someone who frequently have those “I wish the ground will open up and eat me”-embarrassing moments or if you’re a young, aspiring comedian, then WHAT THE HEY ARE YOU STILL WAITING FOR?!
(Note: This is NOT a Disney book. EXPECT four-letter words.)
All you need is a healthy dose of empathy to enjoy this book (read: just be human). Very relatable to the extent that even dogs with enough empathy could actually enjoy it. What do you mean am I sure? How would I know–I don’t even have a dog!
But you’re not a dog, are you? Thought so. Just try it.
Really, unless you’re an unfeeling cyborg with no funny or any other bone, you would never regret it.
The worst thing a comedian can hear is silence. When a comedian tells a joke and there is no response, he dies a little bit inside. –Tim Boyle
