This is an unusual review as it is not a book per se. However, I would still highly recommend making it over to laugh.com and listening to this interview with Jerry Seinfeld. Even though you may not be an aspiring comic, a lot of the insights given I think are applicable to everyone. One of the points he makes is that everyone is looking for a way to succeed without the work. There is no way to succeed without the work, the work is a part of the success. And if you are an aspiring comic, then who better to listen to than on of the masters?
