A few Recovering Idiot book reviews:
5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and laugh-out-loud
I have enjoyed every minute of this book. It is very entertaining. The format is somewhat chronological and somewhat topical. It is a long book (523 pages in paperback) but the pages fly. The series of stories from Ben's life make you shake your head and wonder how his angel wife puts up with his chaos and how he has managed to survive his many misadventures. Take the time to buy this book. It is well worth it.
5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely hilarious!
This book was the most fun I've had since reading Mad magazine as a kid! I laughed and laughed and laughed and then laughed some more. I ordered it after a recommendation from my mom and wasn't sure what to expect. Then I started reading and was absolutely transfixed from page one. Casper is not only an accomplished and hilarious storyteller but he's actually a hell of a writer too. With as many lives as he has I should think we'll have the opportunity of hearing from him and about his exploits for a very long time!
5.0 out of 5 stars Belongs on the Best Seller List
Ben has a real winner on his hands and you won't be disappointed! I find myself laughing out loud, grinning, shaking my head in disbelief and wondering how he survived to write this. Ben's story telling and straight-forward way of speaking are a breath of fresh air. This book should be in Oprah's club and the New York Times best seller list. Pick this book up, read it, laugh and repeat!
5.0 out of 5 stars Super funny book
Super funny book! I rarely laugh out loud but found myself doing so all through the book. It's a great escape from life and cheers you up when reading. A lot of the stories reminded me of my youth and growing up. Except for getting hit by a car. It brought back great memories of my wild days as well. Neither one of us should be alive right now. I'm really happy I bought the book. My daughter is reading it now. I usually buy serious informative books and this was quite refreshing! Hats off to Ben and his crazy friends!
5.0 out of 5 stars Funniest book ever!
This is the most that I have laughed in a long time! I shook my head plenty of times while reading, also. Not sure how anyone could be so crazy and live to tell about it. The author has way more than 9 lives. Take the time to read it--you won't regret it. It's one of those books that you won't read just once.
Ben has a blog (unlike the book, it's absolutely free but not quite as entertaining). He has always enjoyed doing things no one else would think of attempting. His latest is plunking down $500 cash to be drawn and given to a lucky follower of his blog.
The cash award is a bit less than the Powerball Lotto but the odds of winning are far greater.
