"So many fun parts of the book that I wantto share with my wife. I read this because my buddy Sean recommended this bookto me. He said that this is funny and that it will crack me up big time! Mybuddy Sean was right. I got my wife to read it and he said, Robert is quite aguy and that Rob is somewhat like me. :PAlso, this book got me thinking about football and its controversies. Inaddition to that are "mundane stuff" such as advertising on TV, the things Iand my wife do, and my relationship with my brothers.
Rob has a way with hisstorytelling that will attract a lot of people and let them see the humor inthings! This is a good book to read for enjoymentand relaxation! Highly recommended!" Reader Reviews.
"In his book "Why Men are Suspicious of Yoga", Robert has dutifully, and with his tongue planted firmly in his cheek, recorded history through the lens of "everyman". By writing a series of short reminiscences and observations from his life he paints an accurate picture of American life in the 20th century. From family members going off to WWII through to talking to the geniuses in the Apple store, Young has kept his tone light and observations shrewd. .This collection of short, creative, autobiographical stories will have one nodding in agreement and chuckling throughout." The International Review of Books.

The subject matter of these hilarious tales varies significantly from one to the other and the variety guarantees that everyone will find favorites. A little ‘for instance’ helps key in the line of fun, this one from Mr. Fridge Speaks Out: ‘My name is Mr. Fridge. I was the subject of an article in the Lexington Minuteman and other newspapers a few months ago. Oh yes, the piece mentioned some of my new attributes, but it really didn’t tell you much about who I am or where I came from. I did receive a lot letters asking questions. Some were even intelligent. Let me tell you about myself. I was, at birth, just a plain, old, regular refrigerator. There was absolutely nothing special about me. My first home was the Sears store in Burlington, Massachusetts. I lived there with a bunch of other refrigerators that, for the most part, looked like me, except for one, but I’ll get to that later…’ And it is that sort of personality assigned to objects and other ingenious asides that suffuse this most entertaining collection of funny (and wise!) stories.
The ‘categories’ include insights into language, games people play, family, ‘the world and Robert meet,’ travel, food, and artificial intelligence – each explored with wit, tongue in cheek humor, tongue out of cheek guffawing, and a hefty dose of contemporary philosophy – related in a very humorous manner.
Jump in for a series of fine escapes from the pickles that life, at present, delivers. This is one fine attitude adjustment resource! Grady Harp, February 20
Note, that another reason that I can appreciate Bob Isenberg's writing is as I was reading his book I was mentally comparing it to my autobiography and it gave me some valuable insights for the sequel to my book. The Crazy Life of a Kid from Brooklyn: My Crazy Life in history, with celebrities, with travel & with business.
I enjoyed the short story format. It made it easy to pick up, read a few chapters (stories), put the book down, and pick it up later without having to remember what was going on.
Being of the same generation, I was able to laugh about many of the funny situations, having"been there done that! "
Why Men are Suspicious of Yoga is a good book that i endured reading a lot.
