Although this book is a bit pricey, it brought a smile to my partner's face! It is well put together and very enjoyable to leaf thru. If only there was a smaller version to take along in my bag.

I CANNOT wait to recieve my copy! How amazing the proceeds go to charity? I hope it's as incredible as I the genius behind it, finally a soul in this world to relate to about the magnificent cynicism that is called life. If so, three more copies to my family for Christmas. Better stock up Amazon, I don't like seeing "only 3 left in stock".

CONT. Just received....ABSOLUTELY STUNNING BOOK! Large, hardcover, glossy pages, gorgeous coloring, creative visual impact...COULD NOT BE HAPPIER WITH THIS PURCHASE! Well worth the money, quality product :-)

Between the content and the artwork, I just love this book! You might learn more about Chuck Lorre's psyche than you ever wanted to know...but I can see why this man has become the most successful creator of great television in the last 20 years. Irreverent, introspective, candid, ridiculous, spiritual, and yes, sometimes filled with an abundance of testosterone, but what a fun, fantastic and original read. Unique holiday gift idea for that person who loves a big ass coffee table book and conversation piece!

After watching some of my favourite T.V. shows I would see CHUCK LORRE followed by what I thought was a copyright notice until one day (after recording my show) I decided to pause and read what was written. It was not a copyright notice. Instead I found myself mesmerized by the words that lay within that one second gap. Sometime humourous sometimes not but none the less that one second had me in its grasp. Everyone should read this book or at least attempt to. (Bearing in mind it may not be every-ones cup of tea). I certainly enjoyed it. I would even go as far to say I would have payed double. A great piece of work.
