I've been trying to read it for a month and a half, and it's just not working for me. There are things about Jillette that are vastly appealing: he loves his family, he's practical, he's worked hard, etc., but those are overbalanced by the dick jokes, and the random, disconnected flow of the book.

I love how honest a straight forward Penn is. I would say I agree with about 85% of what he writes about, but I still enjoy his point of view on the things we disagree on. Besides a few editing errors, this was a smooth and enjoyable read. ( )

Do I know Penn and Teller? No. Would that change my opinion of the book if I did? I have no clue. What I can say is if you get around the shock value, there are some interesting points made in the book. The problem will be dissociating from the noise in your head to hear what he is saying.

Why it gets a 4 is because if you take the time to read it for the ideas, you might actually start to think. Do I agree with him? No we have some differences of opinion such as his belief that humans are essentially good. Do I agree with the way some of them are presented? Nope... even if I agree with the concept. But that is what makes life interesting. Not agreeing and actually hearing. That's were discourse starts. ( )

Wonderful, amusing, laugh out loud funny, read out loud to random people written well. Penn Jillette, I will read anything you write. ( )
