Honesty Must Not Be The Best policy

It seems like most of the 1-star reviews for this book were written by people who complained that Leitch wrote too clearly about his life experiences or that he used real people (or very thinly disguised real people) as his characters. Based on the writing, I bet all those 1-stars even came from the same person, and probably someone Leitch knew. Maybe someone who didn't like what was written about him. My thoughts: this book was pretty funny, but if not an out-and-out knee slapper, it was the type of book that drags you into the characters so that the smaller things become funnier as you become more familiar. I'd recommend it to anyone, and I've read Sedaris and Hornby too. And if those bad reviews weren't from someone with a vendetta, I'm wondering where they learned to read.

If you don't find this funny, there's something wrong with you.

I read the other reviews of this book and, honestly, THEY are full of crap. This book is hilarious and insiteful. If you're looking for a novel or some non-fiction, then don't buy this book. If you're looking for a good relaxing read with no pressure and some great stories about a complete loser; buy this book. Will Leitch's stories range from the very familiar to the very strange. He's a fantastic story-teller and this book proves it.

makes my life look pretty good

this is a great read. start to finish it flows very well. will's humorous vignetes get better as you continue. this book serves as a great reminder on how bad things can get and let's you appreciate the small things in life

Nothing but laughs

This book makes you want to go visit Mattoon, home of much of these stories. The people there seem infinitely more pleasant than those in New York, and they're funnier too. Plus, any baseball fan will relate to just about everything in there. My only problem: There's some weird sexual stuff in there, without warning. You're reading about Little League baseball, and then bam you're in a Penthouse forum. that was scary.But a great read. Funny, funny stuff.

Realizing We're All Losers....

Leitch makes you feel ok about being a freak. His irreverent stories and antecdotes are amusing and comforting. It's nice to know that someone can be so honest these days - bearing his soul for all to view - writing about his heartbreaks, just so we feel better about ours. The e-column is a real treat, the book even better!
