I never thought about the differences between a comic and a comedian but this self-help book shows the differences. The official reviewer finished the book in three hours so it should be a fast read. I look forward to reading the entire book and learn from the story. So many books, not enough time to read them all.

How to kill it in comedy is very informative, steve details each point in the lesson in easy to chew sentences. He lays it all out for people and gives plenty examples on how to grow your own comedic character. It also is a lesson in being authentically yourself. The name of this book should be "therapy from laughter" learning how to laugh at yourself is a hard lesson to learn. But when you get there you can literally make money, meet people, change your whole life if you wanted to. All you have to do is follow steve's lead and open yourself up to your own absurdities!

I won't be a comedian anytime soon because public speaking is not my thing. That being said having a sense of humour and knowing how to structure it is important in day to day conversations. This is a definite must read! Great review

I always thought comedy is inborn, but now I realize that your limit is in your brain, so anyone can train and be a comedian. Congrats to the book of the day.

I was pleased to read in this review that the book is not only for aspiring comedians but for anyone who wants to be more funny or witty in everyday life.
This is not a book I would have gone out of my way to look for, but I'm very pleased to have found it - thanks for the free copy. Great review.

The fact that the book contains jokes that makes a reader laugh out loud proves that the author's information in the book is accurate.
