This book is an easy r...

This book is an easy read, and has a great many super quotes. It is an unfortunate book, however, in that the juxtaposition of the quotes, purporting to demonstrate similarities between Groucho Marx and John Lennon are actually a mish-mash of unrelated quotes stuck together in a sort of bizarre manner, much like the Google Ads that show up on websites based on a keyword that is only poorly understood by the cyberbrain listing them. Just because both of them use the word "wife" or "pig" or "neck tie" in a statement does not mean that the statements are demonstrating a commonality of minds - only the fact that they are both speaking (roughly) the same language. Though I do think you could find a great many areas of similarity between Marx and Lennon, the entire book is an exasperating conglomeration of squished together quotations that often clash like mis-matched reds. Read and enjoy it for the quotes; ignore the attempts of the author to make something more out of it. He's just playing mind games with you in the end, and if you have any critical thinking ability at all, you'll resist his attempts to sucker you into his strange, Google-surreal world.
