“I Want You to Shut the F#ck Up is the best book since The Hunger Games. First he was a King of Comedy; now he's the king of comedy authors. You should buy this book or get out the country because D. L. stands for ‘don't lie,’ and he doesn't in his amazing new book.” --Chris Rock, CEO & President of NOTHING!
“I always knew it wouldn’t take a politician, a preacher, or even a scholar to solve the problems of this country. I knew it would take someone who used comedy, common sense, and a lot of cussing. D.L. has risen from a King of Comedy to a higher calling: D.L. for President 2016? Both he and this hilarious book on how to get past the B.S. get my vote!” —Tom Joyner
“[Hughley] has starred in shows on ABC (The Hughleys), CNN (D.L. Hughley Breaks the News) and HBO (Unapologetic) in addition to radio (The D.L. Hughley Morning Show), and now he finds a solid footing on yet another plateau as he makes an easy transition to the printed page….In the closing chapter, he concludes, “Comedy might not be able to change minds—but it can certainly expose truths and knock down fallacies.” Ditto for this book, which provides that much-needed wakeup call.” –Publishers Weekly
“Hughley’s a hard-line pragmatist whose brash opinions almost always transcend polarized black/white and liberal/conservative comfort zones. [I Want You to Shut the F#ck Up] is a solid combination of a street-tough attitude and a keen grasp of social and political hot-button issues.” --Kirkus

This isn't one of those books that deals with his life per se, but rather little glimpes of who D.L. Hughley is and what he thinks about. If you enjoy his standup, you will definitely enjoy this book and you'll get where he's coming from. I thought the ending of the book was well done with his personal thoughts on Bernie Mac. It was so moving, it made me cry. I miss Bernie too, so I could relate to his pain on losing such a great friend.
If you can't deal with realism, you won't enjoy this book because D.L. does not sugarcoat anything. He tells it just like it is, whether you agree with him or not. I have nothing but respect for him. A really good read!
