Editor reviews

Al Franken's wonderfully pitiful alter-ego, Stuart Smalley, explodes the world of touchy-feely self-help gurus (some of whom you can also listen to from Audible!) in this short but undeniably sweet diatribe. Franken strikes a perfect balance between clever and stupid in a manner that has universal appeal and it's amazing that he reads all of this with tongue firmly planted in cheek. You and your inferiority complex will never be the same! (Jonathan, Director of Public Relations)

Summary

You're going to take a healing journey, and it's going to be great! Unless it's a disaster....
From Stuart Smalley come guided visualizations that will take you to a safe and healing place...except for a few wrong turns along the way. (Stuart made a solemn vow not to edit anything he recorded because he is a perfectionist - that's his problem, but he's owning the problem, and that's okay - and he realized that if he started editing the audio he would never finish it.)
So even if some of the parts aren't exactly what Stuart wanted (because human beings aren't perfect, and that's okay), sit back and take a journey down the River of Life and into the Dysfunctional Forest - a dark and scary place where you'll meet Grandiose Bear, Overcommitted Opossum, Sex-aholic Squirrel, and a beautiful little child - a child who looks a lot like...you. Plus, you'll hear Stuart's calming visualizations for such stressful times as traffic jams and holidays. So close your eyes. Relax. You're in good hands. Stuart Smalley is a caring nurturer, a member of several 12-step programs, but not a licensed therapist.
Al Franken wants everyone to know that he really created Stuart and played him on Saturday Night Live, and that he wrote and performed this program.
Warning: Do not close eyes while driving a motor vehicle.

Best Prank Audiobk EVER. Play THIS IN THE CAR!

Not only is this great comedy, but it was designed with the conceits of the audiobook listener in mind. You MUST play this in the car, while you're driving, for full impact of the punchline. I just love it, I love Stuart Smalley, and I love Al Franken. I'm so mad he's in the Senate now and can't do a sequel!

Loved it!

Loved it! I know he is a Senator now, but he should seriously consider resurrecting this character.
