I found myself laughing out loud over and over again.
Michael Charren
You're Only Human is a wonderful quick read with "tongue-in-cheek" commentary on the important things in life .... And some not-so-important topics as well.

Deliciously entertaining, fun, short, horizon broadening read!

A review copy was provided for an honest review. I will make this short and brief. This was a cute little book that has a bunch of laughs to go with it. It delivers humorous points about why we're all human and I think it's enjoyably entertaining. The fact that it's supposedly told by the charmingly funny Gecko from Geico only makes it even more intriguing. You're Only Human is written with intellect and wit that makes it appealing to anyone looking for a quick, fun read. I wish that it had more text as it's comprised of lots of doodles and illustrations which make up at least 80% of the book itself. Overall it will take you less than an hour to finish and it'll give you a good laugh. It's the perfect book companion for car travel or if you just have some time to kill and are in need of some quirky amusement; this will provide you with that!

Who would have suspected that the Gecko, famed ad icon, could, among other talents, write and draw so well? A witty, uncommonly delightful book that every reader of every age will enjoy.

If you love the Gecko, this book is a must have. Written with the Gecko's unique sense of humor- thoroughly enjoyable.
And, beneath the humor, there are some words of wisdom that gave me pause to think about events in my own life. Maybe, at
times, we humans take ourselves a little too seriously. This is one book that will be read and reread.

I bought multiple copies of this book even before I knew it would be great. I read my copy and have given the others as birthday presents and Mother's Day presents. Everyone has responded that they love it. I'm sure the copies will be passed on for years and years to their children.

I have always loved the gecho commercials and thought the book might be as well done. It was a disappointment. Not much reading and the artwork rudimentary. Definitely not a reread!
