"I have impeccable taste, and I only converse with the following
three: God, the Devil, and Patton Oswalt. All three have opened for
me. This book is a funny tragedy. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll
convert to Pattonism. If you do not love this book, remember, I
know where you live in your mother's basement."
"Perfect--I can describe Patton's book the same way I describe his stand up--brilliant and prolific, I am slackjawed, amazed, and left feeling both inspired and fraudulent."
"I don't know what's sharper, Oswalt's brains or Oswalt's tongue."
"Patton Oswalt is among the funniest on-stage talking humans I am aware of, so it annoys me deeply that he is also an incredibly talented writer. It annoys me, but it does not surprise me. Every sentence in this book is funny (except for the sad ones), but it also brims with Oswalt-ian smarts and surprising poignancy."
"To delve into this book is to take a tour of Oswalt's delightfully offbeat mind. . . . Oswalt is a wonderfully descriptive writer."--Booklist
