I thought this would be more of a comedy read. The book was read as just everyday goings on. Those everyday happenings that can drive us crazy and make us ponder what is the point?
Do telemarketers really accomplish any thing besides annoying us?
How much harm to the environment has AOL done by sending out millions of CD's in hopes to drum up subscribers. I'm very happy with google and gmail, thank you very much. Although the AOL CD's can be recycled into Christmas ornaments, glassware coasters, mirror balls, etc.
I like his counter-annoyance tactics. He gives quite a few suggestions.
In spite of bringing up many annoying subjects, I think this is a "feel good" book. It's not "just me"...these things bother other people also.
I will be reading/listening to this again and taking notes for my counter-annoyance action plans.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Yes it was pleasantly Light listening. Was interesting to hear how others deal with annoying situations, people.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
All the anecdotes dealing with cars, parking, meters etc seemed very relevant and creatively effective. I also liked the bit about cashiers asking for personal information; I had a good laugh. There were some annoyances that did not have as witty or creative solutions, I found those parts of the book annoying.
Which character – as performed by Stanley Tucci – was your favorite?
He only spoke as narrator. He did an excellent job relating a compilation of stories and anecdotes in an interesting and pleasant voice.
Could you see Life's Little Annoyances being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
I could see a tv series that does a candid camera style show where we see the pranks as they are unfolding.
Any additional comments?
Short and sweet. An easy book to fit into small chunks of spare minutes without compromising the content.
