I See London, I See France...

"I started reading I See London, I See France... and I could not put it down. I had to put it down because I was laughing so hard. It’s like a stand-up comedian: the jokes keep coming, but they are so smart. I was having a blast! The cleverness with the way he put this book together is incredible."
