I first discovered Joe Lycett after his video about getting out of a parking fine went viral. Thanks to YouTube, I was able to watch a few more of his stand-ups, then I saw a clip where he was promoting this book. So I checked Audible, and seeing that is was available on here, I promptly dl'd it.
The book is entertaining, and fairly short. However, my enjoyment of his stand-up on YouTube worked against me, as a few of the bits from his act are in the book.
Still, Lycett has a lot of good quips here, there is a good flow to the story, and he genuinely made me laugh out loud several times. "Hopefully" more books are "forthcoming".
The only other thing I would add is that some of the humor (humour?) is uniquely British, so parts of it may not resonate with American listeners. However, I believe there's enough content that anyone can enjoy this book.
Sadly it is mainly a repeating of the jokes from his shows, but he still delivers them in a most entertaining way.
One of the funniest and wittiest comedians today. This book was a breeze to to listen to, absolutely perfect and I'm already hoping he writes another one.

Madness and mayhem are two perfect words to describe Joe and any conversation that involves an email from him. A very funny way to spend 3 and a bit hours.

Would you try another book written by Joe Lycett or narrated by Joe Lycett?
I would assume anyone from the Third Reich or an fifth of the Kardashians
Any additional comments?

If you enjoy Joe Lycett’s stand up, you’ll love this! His anecdotes of annoying people via Email, Twitter, and Facebook are all unique enough to stay fresh. I couldn’t put it down and would recommend it to absolutely anyone who doesn’t mind a bit of crude language.
