This book was hilarious, great writing, great social commentary. It's definitely vulgar but, you should be used to it if you're familiar with the works of Dave Chappelle, Richard Pryor, and Paul Mooney. The book reads similar to satirical movies and shows like "Family Guy", "Don't Be A Menace", "I'm Gonna Git You Sucka", or Chappelle's Show.

Have Google, Bing, or Wikipedia close by because there will be plenty of linguistic, historical and pop culture references that you'll need to understand to get the joke. There are also public figures and events that he describes to a "T" but does not mention by name, so it's even better if you can relate or have seen some of the mannerisms and ideas at work in real life.

I expected the ending to be more profound or have a hard-hitting social commentary but instead it summarizes the underlying motives of the characters throughout the book and brings you to a "soft landing". I was somewhat disappointed in the ending, but I enjoyed the ride getting there so I still give it 5 stars.
