More About the Author

Emmy Award and Grammy Award winner Jimmy Fallon did everything in his power to ensure that his daughter's first word would be "Dada!" Yes, he has many other projects on his plate, like hosting NBC's The Tonight Show. But he was determined that his daughter would say "Dada!" before any other word. He worked very hard on this. Jimmy Fallon lives with his wife, Nancy, and their daughters, Winnie Rose and Frances Cole, in New York City. Winnie's first word was "Mama!"

Friday nights with Jimmy Fallon is a must in my household - and mainly because of his Thank You Notes segment. I just received my book in the office and my co-workers read a few pages, and there hasn't been one page so far that hasn't caused laughter. I don't want to let them read all of them - they need to buy the book so that we have the opportunity to buy more volumes in the future. Jimmy, are you listening?

Jimmy asked last night that everyone place an order for the book on May 26, 2011 at 3:00 PM EST - Noon on the Pacific coast. His goal? To be the #1 ranked book on Amazon.com - if only for an hour. I'll be placing another order on Thursday to support his quest.

It's the best $6.60 you'll spend as laughter is priceless.

This book is full of all the Thank You Notes we know and love from Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and the jokes are just as funny is a book as they are on TV. It's not supposed to be released until May 23rd, but I found it at Barnes & Noble and bought a copy. It'll only take you about 15 minutes to read through the whole thing, but you will be laughing hard through the whole book. Any fan of Jimmy Fallon or the "Thank You Notes" segment of his show will love this book.

"Thank You Notes" is my boyfriend's and my favorite segment of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. I pre-ordered this book once we knew they were coming out with one. It wasn't supposed to come out until, I think, the end of May. However, they decided to release it earlier and I got my shipment with the small paperback book within 2 days. It is HILARIOUS! It's a great coffee table book, all of the thank you notes are funny and unique.

This book has a lot of funny jokes from Jimmy Fallon, I really enjoyed reading it. However, it is definitely on the short side, with the book containing 164 one to three sentence jokes. If you watch Jimmy Fallon, then you know the format of the Thank You Notes and how funny they are. You will also probably remember most of the jokes in the book, though there were a decent amount of new ones. For six bucks, I enjoyed reading this, and I'm sure it will make a great coffee table book. If anyone buys this for the list price, twelve bucks, they might be a bit dissatisfied.

In the end, this is a really funny little book from my favorite late night host, and I don't mind supporting the show by buying the book. :)

I can't give this "book" less than 3 stars for the simple fact that it's Jimmy Fallon, and I'm a fan. But seriously - I was through this "book" in literally 10 minutes. Having purchased the e-version I cannot compare to a printed hardcopy - I can only hope that the hardcopy had more content than the electronic version. Great illustrations, but the illustrations on each page took up more space than the text. I'm really suprised of the ratings as well. Yes, the few small passages in this pamphlet were somewhat funny, but not enough to justify spending $12.

I saw a taping of "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" back in August 2009. It was a Friday so the episode featured the weekly "Thank You Notes" segment where Jimmy writes a letter of gratitude to a variety of people, places and things such as, "Thank you slow-walking family walking in front of me on the sidewalk. No, please, take your time. And definitely spread out, too, so you create a barricade of idiots. I am so thankful that you forced me to walk into the street and risk getting hit by a car in order to pass you so I could resume walking at a normal human pace."

Now along with the writers of "Late Night," he has published "Thank You Notes" in book form. It features 164 glossy pages - one note per page each with a corresponding image. The size reminded me of McDonald's coupon books that arrive in the mail. As a coffee table book, it can easily be read in under 10 minutes. It's not an earth-shattering, game-changing publication. It is what it is - a collection of humorous jokes that examine the minutia of life from toilet paper to sweater vests.

The book reads like a compilation of the best tweets from the "Saturday Night Live" alum. Jimmy is a Twitter fanatic (you can follow him - along with over 3 million other people - at @JimmyFallon) as well as a savvy marketer. He employed the notoriety of his talk show as well as his social media standing in order to spur sales. He asked his fans, a.k.a. his "Fal Pals," to purchase a copy on May 26 via Amazon for a one hour window (3-4 p.m. Eastern, 12-1 p.m. Pacific) to boost the overall sales ranking. It worked. Jimmy's book soared to #1 on the online retailer's site. It also went on to secure the #2 spot on the "New York Times" best seller.

"Thank You Notes" is probably my favorite segment from Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, so I pre-ordered this book the minute I heard about it. It's a quick read--only 164 pages (each page has only two or three sentences depending on the note), and the majority of the Thank You Notes included are repeats from what has already aired. However, they're still incredibly funny, and even relatable ("Thank you, slow-walking family..."). If you're a fan of the show, you'll love it. Even if you're not a fan, you'll enjoy it--you can pretty much pick it up, open up any page, and have a good laugh. Great buy for six dollars and change.
