I'm sure just about everyone on here has. I didn't really care for it. It was ok but I think what makes Seinfeld so amusing is the 1) the delivery in the standup routines and 2) the entire cast of the show feeding off of each other. Just reading the stuff didn't do it for me. However, it was a good bathroom read Laughing

Jimmy's gonna wait for the movie version.

After all, he does get together with George Peppard...

haha ItGirl, i just flagged mine yesterday. But in the introduction he said that you need : timing, attitude and infliction or something like this to enjoy this book. When I read it I imagine jerry's voice and imagine how he would say it the way I think it's funny so maybe i'll found jokes more funny because of the delivery I've imagine

Way more hilarious than that book is the Seinfeld-inspired "Ted Nancy -- Letters from a Nut"... Wild, side-splitting stuff!

It's like a boring book, but you gotta finish it.

I walked out of the opera. Not because of the performance but because the seats were too small for a guy like me.

So did the seat thus vacated cost you $250 or $175?

I only slipped him $150. He was too preoccupied to notice.

I liked the book. I think some people do and some don't. It's just a matter of personal taste.

That's all. Wink

I read Letters From a Nut first, and I was completely lost.

The only way Jimmy would ever read a book (from beginning to end... in that order), is if Jimmy could live a thousand years..... otherwise, there's just not enough time to waste on that. That's like using a weekend to plant flowers and do yard work. Oy! No thanks. Too many fun things to do.

Love it when George and Jerry joke about wanting to someday actually read a book. Hilarious! There's nothing more insane than reading a book. Especially in the 21st century.

Well, let's change that to "reading for pleasure." Didn't mean necessary reading was a waste of time.
