Publisher's Summary

The thinking person's comic who uses words as weapons, George Carlin shares all-new, cutting-edge opinion and observational humor in this best seller. Carlin demolishes everyday values and leaves you laughing out loud. Learn what he thinks of sports fans, how he would improve the TV networks, his suggestions for "Legal Murder Once a Month," and his plan for "World Peace Through Dancing." Performed by Carlin himself, and filled with thoughts, musings, questions, lists, beliefs, curiosities, monologues, assertions, assumptions, and other verbal ordeals, Brain Droppings is infectiously funny.

Hilarious

Driest delivery. Sad that he's gone.
I recommend this if your feeling a bit low.

If you already know Carlin's standup, don't bother

Mostly bits from Carlin's standup, just not edited as well and with worse delivery. I feel like the parts of it didn't make it to any of the specials for a reason.

classic George Carlin and highly recommended

George allows us to laugh at ourselves with impunity. The best comic of the 20th century?

Quick listen, full of sarcastic jokes

George as always offers a different angle to see things. Fun and unique comedian. Sad current generation is usually scratching the surface

Disappointing

I have always found Carlin's political and social commentary very insightful and extremely funny. Unfortunately I had to give up on this book as it is just grumblings about modern life. Save your money and turn on a day time talk radio call in.

wish it went on longer

One of the finest comedians of all time. a little over priced but still good value if you're paying per laugh
