From what I've heard, traditional Michael Moore. If you like him, you'll probably like this book. I haven't read it myself, though.

hmm ok. Any suggestions for a book that will make me laugh? Ive looked at the comedy section at amazon...but it looks like all books on how to be a stand up comedian.. :huh:

I really like the author Patrick McManus. He's an author that essentially embellishes stories about hunting and stuff from his childhood. I'm not a hunter or sportsman myself, but even I find his stories hilarious.

Does your library support the inter-library loan system? If it does, you should be able to get it, even if your library doesn't have it. I've gotten books from the Library of Congress before. 0_0

I got the books. Some funny stuff. I can relate to almost all of it , which really helps the comedy.

Kid Campng from Aaaaaaii!! to ZIP
How I got this way
Into the Twilight Endlessly Grousing

Kid Camping is a hilarious guide to camping..and How I got this way is an awesome real story of some of what he did. Like using a poor kid as a lead shot in his boat. Funny stuff.

Hmm. Haven't read those ones yet. Sounds good, though.

Hmm, read some of "How I got this way" on Amazon. Great stuff. See, the great thing about Pat McMan is that he bases his stories on real childhood memories, but embellishes them just enough to know they're exaggerated but not so much that you can't half believe them.
