2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on July 22, 2005
Folks kept telling Jerry Clower he should cut a record, and he went on to become the premiere country comic in the land. Then a few people told Jerry he should write a book, and he did (several, in fact) - and this is the first one. This isn't an autobiography, although Jerry does talk a lot about his life and the book does contain a wealth of pictures; it's really just Jerry being Jerry, telling funny stories, talking about how he grew up and later backed his way into show business, spreading the Gospel that he lived every day of his life by, going on about how much his family means to him, etc. I have no doubt that Jerry Clower was the funniest man who ever lived; I never got the chance to see him in person, but I've always felt as if I knew him. He could forever more put on a show and have folks rolling in the aisles, but he was 100% genuine, honest, sincere, a living example of the best kind of man. Listen to one of his albums and/or read this book, and you'll feel like you know him, as well.

Jerry had released four hugely successful records when Ain't Got Good! was originally published in 1975. Some of his most famous material finds its way into this book, and it's amazing how you can hear Jerry speaking every word you read. Folks, if you ain't ever heard Coon Huntin' Story, you just don't know what funny is. If the name Marcel Ledbetter means nothing to you, you might as well not even come around my part of the country. Whether you are a Southerner or a Yankee or anything else, you need to seek out Jerry Clower and get to know him through his records and books.

This whole book reads as if Jerry is sitting right there having a personal conversation with you. He's proud to be from Amite County, Mississippi, and he's incredibly honest about his childhood.

Very good book, especially if you are somewhat familiar with Jerry Clower's jokes and style of southern upbringing and stories. The begining will be somewhat slow for those not familar with the man, but the middle of the book
has very good insights into an authentic Christian way of life. A lot of common sense of how a Christian should be living and thinking about some things. Jerry Clower was a country comedian similar to Jeff Foxworthy and won most comedy awards before Ray Stevens came onto the scene.
