Had a hard time with this one. Hoped it would be funnier than it was.
What a great fun book.
This is basically Jimmy Failla's life over a nine month period of time for the most part. He is a stand up comic basically unknown during the time period of this book. He finds out his wife is pregnant and needs to earn extra money now that he will have a baby. So he goes to work driving a yellow cab in NYC. He writes down all the life lessons his passengers have given him along the way. This book is acting out events during that time in his life.
I found that this book was the perfect length...even tho it left me wanting more of these funny stories. Hopefully there will be another book some day.
Normally I shun books read by the author as 9/10 the author has no ability to narrate. Autobiographies are the other way around 9/10 no one can read your life like you! Failla's voice was great! A really long stand up routine but so much more! I listened to this pretty much in a single listen, so easy to listen to and I found it never lagged in content allow way to the end. Next thing to do is to go and check out one Jimmy Failla's stand up shows in NYC.
