Publisher's Summary

Wilber Winkle was called a "national treasure" by no less than TV's Larry King, and his book was dubbed the funniest in decades by American Bookseller. What does Mr. Winkle do? Without fear, he writes letters to the massive corporations responsible for popular consumer products, demanding satisfaction and complaining about even the most minor of flaws. And miraculously, the corporations answer.
A gift guaranteed to have listeners laughing out loud. Plus, a gentle but effective primer to customer service types and, for the most reluctant of readers, an easy audiobook to listen to and a superior way to learn how to write a business letter.

Hilarious.

This is a hilarious book, showing just how much power the written word carries, as the author gets huge corporations to pay attention to even the smallest complaints, some of which were just too ridiculous for words! Excellent narration too, this book will tickle your funnybone, and maybe give you some ideas for the next time your unhappy with a company.

Not as much humor as I had anticipated.

Wilber Winkle writes prank type letters to a lot of big businesses. I expected something along the lines of the old Crank Yankers television program or the Gilbert Gnarley character that Gary Burbank used to perform. While it was in the same genre, it just didn't have as much to it that made me laugh. Occasionally, a letter or response would make me grin, so I didn't consider it a waste of time. However, I felt like a majority of the gags were more of a swing and miss. The narrator delivered very well.
