Publisher's Summary

In We Learn Nothing, satirical cartoonist Tim Kreider turns his funny, brutally honest eye to the dark truths of the human condition, asking big questions about human-sized problems: What if you survive a brush with death and it doesn't change you? Why do we fall in love with people we don't even like? How do you react when someone you've known for years unexpectedly changes genders?
With a perfect combination of humor and pathos, these essays leave us with newfound wisdom and a unique prism through which to examine our own chaotic journeys through life. These are the conversations you have only with best friends or total strangers, late at night over drinks, near closing time.

Exceptionally Beuatiful.

Tim's book is mind-blowing. The fact that he succeeds to narrate it in such a tone of voice that brings out all the intense emotions he regular convers in his writing is even further awesome. As one critic accurately put it, the stories Tim tells are some of the kind you only have with a best friend or a complete stranger, in a quiet bar, around closing time!!

Very good

A very good collection of essays. I found them funny, thought-provoking, sad at times, but enjoyable. Kreider does a good job narrating as well.

Thought provoking

Didn't really know east to expect from this book. It took a while for me to get into it, but then I started to enjoy the stories. Very funny, clever vocabulary, and very thought provoking.

Brilliant, and fascinating. Get it.

What made the experience of listening to We Learn Nothing the most enjoyable?

Each story is unrelated, and filled with such descriptions that come at me unexpectedly. I couldn't wait to hear each new segment, and was disappointed when the book ended. 10/10.

Which character – as performed by Tim Kreider – was your favourite?

Tim himself, his reflections and meanderings along his life, often hilarious, always brutally honest.

Any additional comments?

Just get this and listen to it. I loved it, and highly recommend it.
