review 1: I thought it was a very nice collection and was particularly enthralled by an essay of Kurt Vonnegut prose lines. But my favorite piece in the whole book was the piece Pearls Before Breakfast by Gene Weingarten of the Washington Post about the time in 2007 that violinist Joshua Bell played at L'Enfant Plaza as a street musician and the reflection on society that ensued. Dave Eggers curated another great compilation with this book.
review 2: Great Collection! I loved the introduction by Matt Groenig. It set the tone for the whole collection, and taught me some things about Matt Groenig I didn't have any ideas about. I guess there is a reason the words "The Best" are in the series title. And every reader will benefit from that. And even though the reading is
... moren't technically required, it really should be. And I think you'll agree after reading the book. less

some selections more interesting than others, but i would read the next edition
Love this book because of the easy laughs it generates.
Wildly uneven. I skimmed a lot. Disappointing.
Interesting and eclectic.
Entertaining, overall.
