  • The funniest book I've ever read......

    I laughed so hard I had an asthma attack. Really. First time in my life I had an asthma attack from laughing. Buying Karl's other book right now. I guess I will be reading it with my inhaler close by this time.
  • He never ceases to make me laugh

    By LolaLapinette
    If laughter is the cure to many ills then this book is the proper medicinal delivery of it!
  • Superbly Funny

    After years of listening to Ricky Gervais' podcasts, I was expecting to know this book inside and out. There were bits here and there but getting the full stories and many others had me crying! On to Karlology.

    Karl is by far the most interesting idiot savant in the world. I cannot believe he is not more famous for his special ways...Ricky Gervais has introduced a real gem of comedy to this world, and anyone who experiences ANYTHING through Karl's eyes, will be truly changed forever. Cheers.
  • Darn funny

    By signewho
    This book was very funny along with karlology. The latter of the two I find to be funnier but both are written in the same manner and pull the same "duh" and "oh geesh" moments.
