Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Stand-up comedian Foxworthy has made a bundle with his brand of aw-shucks, low-brow humor. Some might call him folksy. Others might find him witty. Others might not: Roseanne Barr is folksy. Jerry Seinfeld is witty. In fact, in comparison, Beavis and Butthead are witty. But those who like jokes about marrying your kin or getting too drunk to fish will be sure to find this offering just the thing. Foxworthy honors us with his down-home takes on universal conditions such as growing up, relationships, work, marriage, and fatherhood, counterbalancing it with more earthy reminiscences of fishing, hunting, womanizing, drinking, and, of course, smoking, cussing, and chewing tobacco. He shares practical jokes, locker-room humor, and plenty of scatalogical banter. But his book is ultimately uninteresting, unoriginal, and unfunny. One nice thing can be said about Jeff Foxworthy, however: in the 12 years he's been married to Gregg (his wife), he has never farted in front of her. A multiplatinum CD, several best-selling trade paperbacks, among them You Might Be a Redneck If (1989), and a popular TV sitcom do not make Jeff Foxworthy's latest effort funny, but they do ensure plenty of demand.

From Kirkus Reviews

The star of his eponymous television show has hit it big with recordings and paperbacks (You Might Be a Redneck If, not reviewed, etc.) and now presents more of what was once called rube comedy. He plows the same field thoroughly worked by his fellow Atlantan, the late Lewis Grizzard, and a sort of yokel dybbuk appears to be at work as Foxworthy recounts yarns of his wayward blue-collar, redneck boyhood. Projectile vomiting seems to have been the most debonair of activities, and we are presented with enough instruction in the finer points of mooning to threaten the firmest of civilizations. What passes for Foxworthy's life story, thus far, involves fishing with granddaddy, life with oft-married mamma (a.k.a. Carole), encouragement of his sporting life by oft- married daddy (a.k.a. Big Jim), courtship rituals of Dixie denizens, and the manly art of maintaining a singles' apartment. The relationship between hunting and gender isn't scanted: ``All men delight in pursuits that disgust women. Hunting is near the top of the list,'' he says. ``You never see deer heads in beauty parlors.'' To complete the picture, add some talk about a lot of nasty relatives, a little attention to body effluents, and a discussion of the author's vasectomy. (He, like may gents down his way, is much concerned with his ``package'' and, one supposes, may some day have to be persuaded not to show you his operation.) Foxworthy, a slick Southerner who kind of likes his celebrity, provides simple fodder for his fans. The hillbilly hijinks, to be fair, are mildly entertaining, but you might be a redneck if you take this text for anything more than showbiz ephemera.

If you have never heard Foxworthy's standup routine, this book will be hilarious. For those who have heard or seen his routine, most of the book is a repeat with personal stories mixed in. See Blue Collar Comedy Tour for Foxworthy and others.

It seems the ciritics of this book have forgotten that Mr. Foxworthy just happens to be the number one selling comedian of all time. All of those who can say they've made more people laugh than Jeff Foxworthy should raise their hand. That's what I thought. So easy to critisize, so hard to create. He must be doing something right, eh, naysayers?

Having said that, Foxworthy's auto-biography revolves around his life growing up "Redneck" style. His early life in rural Georgia is chronicled in humurous detail, and his narrative is fairly light and easy to read and enjoy. He talks about getting started in Comedy, how he met his wife, and the birth of his daughters, all of it with a fun little wink and a light heart to make sure the reader is playing along. Unlike Engvall or Cable Guy's book, this one could be shelved either in humor or biography. An enjoyable read for anyone with an afternoon to kill.

I found this book horrifying. Horrifying to the point that my faith in humanity is so diminished I can only quote the following aphorism;-
"Its better to be raped with an axe then read this book".
Niezche said that. he really did

This is one of those books you will either love or hate.

This book is a series of anecdotes, supposedly from throughout Jeff Foxworthy's life. Reading through these stories is like talking with a fisherman. While you suspect what you are being told is not entirely accurate, there seems to be a ring of truth to it.

The book is filled with stories from throughout Jeff's life from childhood to adulthood. Various topics are discussed such as work life, love, marriage, fishing, hunting, and family. Most stories were worth a smile. Some made me laugh out loud. Then there were a handful of stories that were 2 minutes of my life that were wasted and I will never get back.

So how do you know if this book is right for you? Do you find Jeff Foxworthy's stand-up funny? Would you read a story about a guy jumping off the back of a pickup into a pile of hay and think "Yeah, we have done something like that"? Do you actually know someone who has shot a deer from the inside of their house? If you have heard stories such as this, you will probably like this book.

Having spent half my childhood in the country, I identified with many of the stories, even if I do think they are not exactly the truth. The book was an easy read. As the book was comprised of stories no longer than a page or two in length, it was a great book to read while waiting for the kids at school or anyplace you have a few minutes to crack open a book and read. Overall, I found the book quite enjoyable.

Like walking off an edge of a cliff and spiraling forever downwards into an abyss of dread and despair are my feelings after reading this compilation of clueless cranium clutter...All work and no play makes Jeff a dull boy.All work and no play makes Jeff a dull boy.All work and no play makes Jeff a dull boy.

The problem with this book is that you have to read it in a room by yourself, otherwise you'll have someone asking you what you're laughing at every couple of minutes. It is truly a funny book. If you don't believe me read it for your self and let me know if you didn't laugh, or at least giggle.

I am a huge comedy fan and spend my commute time daily listening to XM Comedy radio. Being that I do listen to so much comedy I found his book to be well written but had a lot of references to his comedy act. A lot of one liners and so forth. I still though enjoyed the book and it was a fast read.
