    "This is certainly not the best book by a SNL cast member, this book is interesting but does not fit into that category at all, there are way too many books written by SNL cast members for this to even be considered."

    "I think the comedic staff of SNL does best when they're writing non-fiction, autobiographies and the like. This is written by Steve Martin - definitely a major star of old school SNL - but it's a novel, and one that got little acclaim."
