This book is a very short collection of Leary's Tweets with some accompanying photos, some which were funny.

I like Dennis Leary as both an actor and comedian . . . as for his writing, if SUCK ON THIS YEAR (Viking Adult) is any indication, I would strongly suggest that he stick to his other careers.
This book, if you can call it that, is a very short collection of his Tweets with some accompanying photos . . . I found very few of them funny.
In fact, on second thought, I only found this one mildly amusing: Scientists discover traces of water on asteroid. Call me when they find scotch.
Perhaps the only redeeming part of the book can be found in its introduction: A portion of the proceeds from this glorified pamphlet with pictures will go towards my charity--The Leary Firefighters Foundation. So not only are you probably improving your own life by buying this and reading it (which should only take about 20 minutes) and hopefully laughing out loud--you are also helping a firefighter somewhere in America gain some invaluable training in a new or improved facility or placing a needed piece of equipment into his or her hands.
My thinking is that if you'd like to support firefighters, just make a contribution directly to the aforementioned Foundation . . . . or to some other organization that supports the work that these brave men and women do . . . save your money and don't buy SUCK ON THIS YEAR unless you're a big fan of the author--or related to him in some fashion.
