The Details

The Ten, Make That Nine, Habits of Very Organized People. Make That Ten.: The Tweets of Steve Martin
By Steve Martin, $16

@Stevemartintogo released a book of his best tweets. 105 pages/3-4 tweets per page/$16. #WhyDidIBuyThis

Martin’s meta-tweets are good. “Another secret message is hidden in this [BANANAS ARE HIGH IN POTASSIUM] tweet.” #SolidComedy

His observational bits, not so much: “Rare Bird Alert #3 on Amazon! I’m as happy as a clam. Wait. Are clams really happy?” #PhonedInComedy

When did Steve Martin become Kenny Bania? Martin includes tweets from fans, who aren’t professional comedians. You can tell because their tweets aren’t funny.

Verdict: Spend your $16 on Martin’s old essay collection, Pure Drivel. Follow @SteveMartinToGo on Twitter. @MichaelIanBlack, too. He’s great.
