Not sure if it's because I'm a big fan of the Ricky Gervais XFM broadcasts and his famed podcasts (as Karl is nearly the main feature in them all) but this book was hilarious!Nearly every chapter made me *laugh out loud* in the literal sense.Definitely the polar opposite of an intellectual read, but worth it for the hilarity.None of the stories are fiction either - at least to Karl they aren't.Would have taken me less than a day to get thru the book if I had a day to waste.Definitely a good break-book in between your serious reading.Did I ever mention Karl Pilkington is my hero?
