...and the audible version has the songs cut out. And the songs are important, they talk about the songs in the podcast. So, search for it for free and get a better version.

The big I Am

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Tell R.G to give his guests time to get a few words in.d

What will your next listen be?

Daft question

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Ricky Gervais?

It’s his show

If this book were a film would you go see it?

No

Any additional comments?

I used to like him, now he nauseates me.Self aggrandising git. How can you interview Brian Cox and spend more time talking than him.I am and have always been an atheist but I don’t go around crowbarring atheism into any conversation.Can’t believe that Robin Ince, who he must have paid big money, to be painfully humiliated appears on this,Some people obviously have no pride.His new show is on Netflix this month, wonder how much he actually wrote himself.

Too repetitive.

The problem with this is that Ricky keeps on saying the same things. He keeps returning to the fact that he`s an atheist, great so am I, but he keeps banging the point home and defending it. Then he`ll say, a point about the difference between a scientific theory, and the colloquial usage of the word theory, again. As I moved through the various chapters, I kept wondering if I`d accidently skipped back to an earlier part. And he`s actually quite irritating on this one, he just sounds wound up all the time.

Desperate

I loved Ricky Gervais until I listened to this. Guests were dull and topics repetitive

Brilliant

So easy to listen to, interesting guests and topics. The need for a real good laugh is so important especially at the moment, this comedian provides it.

Amazing

They touched on some taboo subjects and showed that people can talk about anything, 1-5 done, think i have up to 44 on my account to listen too as I travel alot at work, wish Brian Cox would do more he was very interesting and wasn't aware how smart Ricky is because I'm use to him Merchant and Pilko which is by far my favouritest thing in the world, not much of a review but I enjoyed it

Interesting Chat Show

Loved all the conversations with Ricky and his guests but got very frustrated at how much they interrupted and spoke over each other in some episodes and how fast they spoke. I understand it means they were passionate and just excited to discuss but it got very hard to listen to after a while. All in all a good podcast but maybe not one to listen to while multitasking.

a very good distraction from my walk into work.
