Our Moment with Ben
Ben Karlin is a man who holds a virtual PhD in Modern American Comedy. Karlin's career kicked off as the editor of The Onion and he is the former executive producer of the award-winning The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and co-creator and former executive producer of The Colbert Report. He was also a co-author and co-editor of the bestselling America (The Book) and his latest project takes him back to the book world as the editor of the anthology Things I've Learned From Women Who've Dumped Me, 212 pages of semi-insightful and mostly hilarious life lessons from a lineup of writers and comedians. Amazon.com senior editor Brad Thomas Parsons caught up with Karlin to talk about his new book, the writers' strike, the serious job of writing comedy, and what makes him laugh (hint: it isn't America's Funniest Home Videos). You can read the complete interview or listen to the podcast on Amazon Wire.

The book suffers from the same drawback any collection of essays or short film festival will, in that there is so much range, not every piece is going to be suited to every person's tastes. This is, however, also a plus side, as the wide range of essays ensures there's something in the book for everybody who isn't a humorless stick in the mud.
I for one only disliked two of the essays in the book, and one of those was out of intense jealousy.
Definitely check it out, it'd make the perfect gift to give to the guy you're about to dump.
One redeeming facet of the book were several heartfelt and sincere stories about relationships; in particular the one by Bob Kerry.
I can't say I learned anything from this book, and I didn't get a good laugh either. Maybe another reader will think it is hysterical, but for me it wasn't worth the money. If you want to read it, it might be best to check it out at a local library and see if the humor is your style before you plunk down your money to buy it.

This is one of my top 10 favorite books. It's good to read any time, but definitely will help you or a friend get through a break up faster.Published on July 8, 2013 by Josh Cannon
Good, quick, funny read. Many great comedians contributed relatable feelings, awkward moments and laugh out loud stories. Good break up/any time read.Published on June 17, 2013 by Jeannine Kilgore
