Publisher's Summary

The thinking person's comic who uses words as weapons, George Carlin shares all-new, cutting-edge opinion and observational humor in this best seller. Carlin demolishes everyday values and leaves you laughing out loud. Learn what he thinks of sports fans, how he would improve the TV networks, his suggestions for "Legal Murder Once a Month," and his plan for "World Peace Through Dancing." Performed by Carlin himself, and filled with thoughts, musings, questions, lists, beliefs, curiosities, monologues, assertions, assumptions, and other verbal ordeals, Brain Droppings is infectiously funny.

Not much energy, disappointing.

Not as good as the live stuff I've heard, which I loved and why I bought this book. No energy, somewhat flat delivery, comes across as a bit of a whiner. Some parts were funny, but I found myself wanting to get through it just to be done with it.

If you like the Carlin of late...

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

George Carlin went through an very noticeable evolution as a comic. The comic in his latter days is the comic of this book. If you remember him as the Hippy Dippy Weatherman, then this is not the same comic. Brain Droppings is a book of comic observations of the stupid things humans do and say and Carlin has no sympathy for us a a species.


What about George Carlin’s performance did you like?

Carlin performs the reading of the book with the same style and well practiced performance that you would see when attending a live standup performance.(Which I was lucky enough to experience once.) The show I saw live was repeated verbatim a few months later on HBO.
