Book Description

Everyone's Crazy Here...

In his twenty years on the radio, the mononymous Lionel ("one name, like God," as he is fond of saying) has forged his reputation as an irreverent, ribald, take-no-prisoners analyst of culture, politics, and the world at large. Now America's favorite contrarian takes to the page with this hilarious user's guide to our country and culture.

In Everyone's Crazy Except You and Me ... And I'm Not So Sure About You, Lionel offers a collection of hilarious and insightful observations on life, liberty, and the pursuit of alien life forms. From the sublime (Why do so many of us believe in God?) to the ridiculous (Why did he run over his sister's hair with the vacuum cleaner?), Lionel takes his readers on a riotous ride through his world, and ours. A former prosecutor, Lionel examines our greatest national oxymoron--criminal justice. He hates hate crimes, and argues against drug criminalization and the Son of Sam laws. He's also an indefatigable defender of the First Amendment who nevertheless believes that men shouldn't drink mojitos or wear socks with sandals. And lest you think he just picks on the Right, rest assured that Lionel has plenty to say about Lefties, Centrists, and even barristas.

No subject is off limits here. No group is immune--not conservatives, not women, and especially not American Homo sapiens.

Consider these imponderables:

  • Why today's acrobatic professional wrestler is inferior to the beer-bellied hulk of the sixties
  • Why Hazmat suits are worn more than once, but not wedding gowns
  • Why women can't tell jokes
  • Why you should never drink anything you can't spell
An infectious, irresistible, and possibly persuasive book that is bound to entertain and inform, Everyone's Crazy Except You and Me ... And I'm Not So Sure About You is the perfect read for anyone who questions the state of our national mental health. Void where prohibited by law.

5.0 out of 5 stars Up there with the best of the genre August 6, 2008
By Jeffrey
Format:Hardcover
I've always loved Lionel's talk radio show, so I was excited when I heard he was finally writing a book. It does not disappoint. The book is funny and insightful in a way that reminds me of George Carlin at his best. Lionel has always been a smart, independent thinker, and those assets have translated well to the printed page. I highly recommend this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars witty "have you ever noticed?" read August 26, 2008
Format:Hardcover
A clever mind usually makes for a decent observational book, and this is no exception. It's tempting to brand his as "part Geroge Carlin, part Dave Barry", but, in the end, he's all Lionel.

He touches on many of the topics near and dear to him on his radio show (9am-noon on WWRC 1260am here in Washington DC)- the first ammendment, god, gender and sexual issues, and the like.

Not a perfect book but a nice effort; I enjoyed it.

5.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining trail to sanity. October 5, 2008
Format:Hardcover
Lionel has the unique ability to make you think and learn -- his book does both while, at the same time, making you laugh. I have been a ferociously dedicated fan of talk radio for all of my many later adult years. I used to seek out one host for his intelligence and insight, another for his humor, and yet another for his delightfully daft take on events. And then when Lionel came along, for the first time in my life I could do one stop shopping. I would refer to him as the Rush Limbaugh for the sane, but would not want to offend Lionel by the camparison."

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of Lionel's Book September 20, 2008
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Since I really like his radio show, I really liked his book. In the book (of course) he gets to use blue language which he uses to accentuate what he probably sounds like when talking in his public personna off mike. The book addresses some of his thoughts, opinions, and conclusions very well. It isn't a story or continuous diatribe but just some writing on various subjects of interest to him and his fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars General-interest libraries will find it a popular lend October 11, 2008
Format:Hardcover
Lionel's hilarious, fun observations on life, liberty and oddities offers a fun set of reflections from a former prosecutor who examines national justice and its fallacies. Any who would enjoy pointed, quirky commentary on American political and social ills, and any who have enjoyed Lionel on his syndicated TV show The Lionel Show, will find this a fun read. General-interest libraries will find it a popular lend.

Insightful. Witty. Fun. The short chapters make it a fun book to read for the person with a busy schedule. Provocative, yet funny. You will look at things a bit differently after you read this book. An amalagam of Sedaris, Barry, and Will. Lionel demonstrates his unique combination of intellect, pragmatism, and humor. I can not wait for the sequel!
