The author starts out his description saying "Publishing types tell me if you're reading this it means you're looking for a reason to buy" and I think it's fair to say that his comment is representative of the level of funny this book achieves. IE: Not much. I picked this because the last book I read was a downer when I expected and upper. I needed a laugh and thus thought myself pre-disposed to laugh.
I only made it half way through this book. It's much like listening to a neighbor tell you about his family and childhood. You stand and there listening politely, because he is your neighbor. There maybe a few interesting bits, and a few light laughs, but all in all you would much rather be doing something else. I kept waiting for laughs, and while there were a few chuckles, there were just as many places where the story is sad. Most of it is just annoying like the aforementioned neighbor thought he was funny when he really wasn't.
If you enjoy those types of stories from your neighbor instead of like me, just listening to be polite and wishing you were doing something else, then buy the book. If you are a fan of this guy and want to know about him and his wife and kids, buy the book. But if you are looking for laughs or comical relief I suggest you keep browsing.
