Mostly of the Material is Garnered From the Opening Sequences of Seinfeld TV Shows

This collection mostly consists of monologues that you see in the opening sequence of most of the Seinfeld episodes (about half). I finished this book in about 2 hours. It is a very enjoyable read even knowing many of the punchlines. Seinfeld is kind of a "cleaned-up" version of Lewis Black and he likes to focus on the ironic. He presents some small tidbits about growing up such as his father's sign business and perhaps a full biography would be a worthwhile project.

I give this book 4 and a half stars and might have rated it higher had it been longer and included more new material.

Pretty funny. I really liked the show, and this book has a similar type of humor. We all need a little humor in our lives.
