"La Crosse Tribune," 1/3/2010 "A critical biography, this is an insightful examination of Carlin's body of work as it pertained to its cultural times and the man who created it." "Library Journal," 3/1/10 "[A] well-written and thorough biography...A celebration of the life of George Carlin and how his comedy remade stand-up, this is a great companion to Carlin's recently published autobiography, "Last Words." Highly recommended for readers interested in performing arts, George Carlin, comedy, and celebrity biographies." "Kirkus Reviews," 3/15/10 "The author meticulously chronicles Carlin's career, which intersected with many formative cultural trends of the '50s and '60s...Sullivan ably captures a sense of the entertainment industry at the time--glamorously competitive and fiercely insular...The author also dutifully covers Carlin's personal life...This is an apt, detailed memorial to a groundbreaking performer." "Booklist," 4/1/10 "Sullivan isn't interested in padding out his book with stand-up material. His focus is on exploring the man himself, with a sharp critical eye and a good feeling for the sociohistorical context of Carlin's comedy. An excellent account of the life and work of an important and greatly missed artist." "Publishers Weekly," 3/29/10 "In this linear summary of Carlin's career, Sullivan dissects the comedian's classic iconoclastic routines, probes his working methods and successfully captures his rocketlike ascent to fame from night clubs and the 1960s comedic cauldron of Greenwich Village to television acclaim, controversy, and creative conflicts." "Kirkus Reviews," 4/15/10 "Although volumes have been written about his contemporaries--his predecessor and mentor Lenny Bruce before him and his contemporary Richard Pryor, to name but a few--relatively little analysis has been done about the late, great George Carlin's mark on the 20th century. In his new book, journalist James Sullivan del

Publishers Weekly, 3/29/10 In this linear summary of Carlin's career, Sullivan dissects the comedian's classic iconoclastic routines, probes his working methods and successfully captures his rocketlike ascent to fame from night clubs and the 1960s comedic cauldron of Greenwich Village to television acclaim, controversy, and creative conflicts. Kirkus Reviews, 4/15/10 Although volumes have been written about his contemporaries his predecessor and mentor Lenny Bruce before him and his contemporary Richard Pryor, to name but a few relatively little analysis has been done about the late, great George Carlin s mark on the 20th century. In his new book, journalist James Sullivan delves deep into the seven-decade history of one of America s most daring comics. Sacramento Book Review, 5/27/10 The book is an impressive effort diligently researched, well-constructed, and showing great affection for the subject without ignoring Carlin s demons, missteps, or low times. Los Angeles Magazine, June 2010 This biography probes [George Carlin s] life and works. "
