This is a wonderful collection of thoughts, stories, and anecdotes that are hilariously funny!
I used to marvel at Steven Wright or Bill Cosby's ability to look at the same life I saw, but to see if from a unique, comic perspective. Well that's how this book is written as well. You'll find yourself nodding along with the author's logic, and then laughing out loud at his conclusions. I couldn't wait to go show it (or tell it) to anyone else that appreicates a clever sense of humor.
If you're up for a laugh-filled walk down memory lane -- start reading NO CHEESE now!
Mr. Parker has a very accessible style; friendly and funny. He draws the reader right in. I found the topics, even ones that didn't vibe with me (gaming), to cover a wide swath of pop culture. Though I am a card-carrying nerd, I never did get into video RPG gaming (D&D is another matter). The section on music was my favorite. Talking King Crimson, ELP and other of my favorite bands made me feel like I would've loved to listen to Mr. Parker spin discs back in the day.
I highly recommend this book, especially for those of us over 50, though I think the younger set might learn a few things, too. Look forward to the next book.
Some of the events in this book were before my time. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the history and insights from a not too previous generation.
What Rembert has, in this book though, is a small collection of gems. The book won’t take you long to read, and at the end you’ll learn there’s another one (or more) coming. What you’ll find are thoughts and stories written with heart and joy and maybe a little bit of disbelief of the world we’re living in now.
What you’ll get from this book is a small picture of the man I get to see every week, on a Wednesday.
Pick it up.
Readers who are close to the age of the author should enjoy this book. There are enough topics covered that the book should appeal to almost everyone. People interested in comic books, music, gaming, will find parts of the book very interesting.
