    This review is from: An ALTOGETHER NEW BOOK OF TOP TEN LISTS LATE NIGHT DAVID LETTERMAN (Paperback)

    Reading David Letterman’s Top Ten Lists will get a laugh out of you, even if you are not a big fan and can’t imagine Dave presenting the lists to you. If you can imagine him saying these, you will cry from laughing so hard. One of my favorites is “Top Ten Least Exciting Superpowers for Comic Book Superheroes.”

    To fully understand the humor of this book, you have to be familiar with the references he makes. This book was written in the early 90s, so you need to be familiar with the first George Bush and Dan Qualye, as well as the headlines from that time.

    I would still recommend this book. This book will still amuse anyone who reads it.

    This book is one of the most hilarious I’ve read in a long time! This book includes some of the best Top Tens such as: “Top Ten Amish Spring Break Activities”, “Top Ten Mafia Euphemisms for Death”,”Top Ten Categories on Iraqi Jeopardy!”, and of course, “Top Ten Freak Accidents on the ‘Today’ Show Set”. This book will keep you on the floor laughing for long time! (At least it did for me) In addition, don’t forget to read the foreword by David himself and the nice, warm introduction from Steve O’Donnell- the head writer from “Late Night with David Letterman”. If you haven’t already gotten the point, here it is: BUY THIS BOOK!

    Don’t get me wrong, some of the lists are very funny, but it’s missing something in book form because you’re missing Dave’s delivery. Also, a one-joke book gets kind of thin quick. I recommend only reading three or four lists at a time so the novelty doesn’t wear off. Great bathroom reading.
