From Lewis Black, the uproarious and perpetually apoplectic New York Times-bestselling author and Daily Show regular, comes a ferociously funny book about his least favorite holiday, Christmas.
Christmas is supposed to be a time of peace on earth and goodwill toward all. But not for Lewis Black.
He says humbug to the Christmas tradtitions and trappings that make the holiday memorable. In I'm Dreaming of a Black Christmas, his hilarious and sharply observed book about the holiday, Lewis lets loose on all things Yule. It's a very personal look at what's wrong with Christmas, seen through the eyes of "the most engagingly pissed-off comedian ever."*
From his own Christmas rituals—which have absolutely nothing to do with presents or the Christmas tree or Rudolph—to his own eccentric experiences with the holiday (from a USO Christmas tour to playing Santa Claus in full regalia), I'm Dreaming of a Black Christmas is classic Lewis Black: funny, razor-sharp, insightful, and honest.
You'll never think of Christmas in the same way.

Although Lewis Blacks' audio books don't have 100% of the umph! as his live stand up does, it is still enjoyable to listen to. I personally love Lewis Blacks' viewpoints and comedic timing, so I'm biased, but I think even my conservative english teacher who was brought up in a catholic school would like this audiobook
Black is great
Love L.Black but beware of this download! I purchased on 2-10-11 and out of 4+ hours it played the first 5 minutes, then nothing. I tried 4 times and finally decided it wasn't the iPad. Searched for a way to report this and get it corrected, no contact for iTunes. Finally found what I thought were instructions to fix a bad download....second time it downloaded correctly but charged me again. Now I have paid about 35.00 for this. Like him but not that much. Finally found a place to email, complained, so they sent me my two receipts...nothing else. Clicked the link to report a problem on my receipt email....can't connect to iTunes message, tried 3 times....won't work but sure let's me connect to purchase or write this review! Hate, hate, hate, Apple and ITunes!!!
Would have been great, had I RECEIVED IT!
I paid for the audiobook but it never downloaded to my account. I reported the problem to iTunes, and a week later I've heard nothing back. So I'll be figuring out something else and not wasting my money on iTunes.
