Kurzbeschreibung

5. Dezember 2013
Rob Delaney is a father, a husband, a comedian, a writer. He is the author of an endless stream of beautiful, insane jokes on Twitter. He is sober. He is sometimes brave. He speaks French. He has bungee-jumped off the Manhattan Bridge. He enjoys antagonizing political figures, powerful retailers and the Kardashians. He listens to metal while he works out. He broke into an abandoned mental hospital with his mother. He played Sir Lancelot in Camelot. He has battled depression. He is funny as s***. He cleans up well. He and Margaret Atwood have a thing going on Twitter. He is lucky to be alive.

Pressestimmen

Rob Delaney has done it again! Actually, this is his first book, so he has not 'done it again.' Actually, this book is so good, I doubt he will be able to do it again. He's peaked -- Judd Apatow WARNING: This book may cause involuntary seepage. Some funny, funny, funny, funny s*** from the most dangerous man on Twitter. The fact that he's just as funny in long form makes me want to vomit with envy -- Anthony Bourdain All it takes to be as funny as Rob Delaney is luck, good timing, deep compassion, reckless imaginative agility, a flawless grasp of the inner workings of language, and criminally vast quantities of mojo. What a jerk -- Teju Cole, author of OPEN CITY

5.0 von 5 Sternen Epic. Funny. Endearing. Towel. Wallpaper. Meat. 6. November 2013
Von Jen Wijnker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I am furious.

I started reading this book the day it was published. I couldn't put it down. I ignored my infant daughter, told my second grade daughter to, 'Figure it out yourself, dummy' when she asked for help with her homework, and let my dog rummage scraps out of the garbage for dinner. Why the heck were they bothering me when I clearly needed to envelop myself in this warm, engaging book? I didn't go to work and didn't even bother to call and fabricate an excuse. They wouldn't understand how this book was taking me along for a ride of highs and lows (and lots of masturbation).

But suddenly the book is done. I finished it too quickly and now I'm mad. I will have to go back to being a mom and wife, and go back to work and 'do my job.'

What the heck, Delaney? Write another book RIGHT NOW so I can again bathe in your humor and wit as you brain-shower me with your warm, wet tales, leaving me refreshed and moist.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Funny in the way only painfully honest stories can be 20. November 2013
Von Kevin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Whenever I hear someone sneering at Twitter by saying that nothing worthwhile can fit in a 140-character message, I know that person has never spent any time on Twitter. The pseudo-profound criticism is wrong on two levels: first of all, it turns out you can say a lot of worthwhile things in 140 characters. You can be poignant, funny, and incisive, stripping an idea or a feeling or a joke down to its essence. (Oscar Wilde would have loved Twitter. He also would have loved not being thrown in prison for being gay.). But on a broader level, people who think Twitter is limited to 140 characters are just misunderstanding the medium. Following someone's Twitter feed over a period of time lets you build up a pretty good idea of their worldview, their priorities, their strengths and weaknesses. When I first started following Rob Delaney on Twitter, it was because I found his one-liners and absurdist observations funny. But as I continued to follow him, and to read the longer pieces he would link to on his feed, I got a much more complete picture of his views on depression, substance abuse, health care, parenthood and other things that matter to me.

So I was extremely excited that Rob Delaney was writing a book, and I was not disappointed. The book is funny - laugh-out-loud funny - in the way that only real honesty can be funny. It's also heartbreaking, and hopeful, and still funny, all the way through. His account of his alcoholism manages an almost impossible feat: recounting horrific experiences without glamorizing them, while still finding the humor at the core of the most harrowing experiences. One of the things that struck me most was that of all the terrible experiences he relates - enough to fill a lifetime of AA meetings - the deepest regrets are failures of kindness. When he describes his surly teenage dismissal of a birthday cake his mother labored to make him, you can just feel him cringing to the center of his being. This highlights the compassion and empathy that the grownup Rob Delaney displays, on Twitter and throughout this book.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not exactly what I expected 22. Dezember 2013
Von Michael Ramsey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This certainly had some funny parts, but is at its core a very dark memoir. It gives a very honest portrait of a recovering alcoholic, and is well written. Just beware that this is not a comedic light read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A truly Funny Book, Like Hist Twitter Feed but More 11. Dezember 2013
Von Travis Starnes - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The book is sort of a rambling series of funny events or thoughts strung together very loosely in a narrative. That isn’t a knock on his writing in any way. Think of it as the literary equivalent of a stand up set, and that is essentially what this book is. Delaney is a funny guy and it shows.

While the book is very funny, and worth reading on that merit alone, there is also some fairly interesting information passed here as well. Delaney is one of a new type of celebrity that made their name in social media before becoming widely known for anything else. I myself have followed his twitter feed for several years and find pretty much all the jokes worth it.

There is a down side to having followed his twitter feed is not all the material in the book is new to me. I have read some of it in the past as he has recycled some of the material. However, everything he brought back for the book was greatly expanded so it isn’t an actual problem.

Delaney is a funny guy and this is a book that will make you laugh. Read it and follow him on twitter, you won’t regret either.
