Seemed a little forced (though he warns you)

I really like Lewis' insight, but it seems a little stretched out over an entire book. He warns at the beginning that he didn't really want to do this book with a whole "My agent says I should write a book" story. At first it seemed like just an anecdote to start the book...but then I really believed that he was doing it just for the money.

Eventually, he gets into some interesting insights and commentary on modern society. But nothing really earth shattering or amazing, but somewhat amusing. The story he shares to end it was definitely the highlight for me - the real example of the meaning of the season and how it is not really tied to religion (Surprise!).

His narration is fine. I don't think it would work to have anyone else doing it, but it is hard to maintain the Lewis Rage for 5 hours.

Passing the torch

Before his death, the great George Carlin said Lewis Black was his favorite comedian out there today and books like this clearly show that Carlin was right. Extremely funny and Black as the narrator is great!
