Cosbyology by Bill Cosby

This is a collection of short stories about Bill Cosby's life. A variety of topics are presented with wit and humour. I found 'To Mr. Sapolsky with Love' the funniest as it was really about how karma comes back to bite you in the rear. 'A Gift from God', although funny is very sentimental and the story of Cosby's first skiing trip is another humorous one.

The stories are from Cosby's childhood into adult life, from school to work and leisure. This book was not laugh-out-loud funny for me but had me smiling at the insight and perception Cosby's shows of the human psyche.

First Line: "A lot of writers - like Mark Twain and James Baldwin - write long books."
