Vonnegut presents over 30"interviews" with historical figures such as Sir Isaac Newton, Clarence Darrow, James Earl Ray, Eugene Debs, John Brown, Adolf Hitler, William Shakespeare and Kilgore Trout among others.
This book is quite short, but nonetheless fun. Vonnegut's sharp wit and clever humor run rampant through the short "stories"; theyre more likeoverviews. Even in its short form, he still manages to get his point across. A great read if you have an extra 45 minutes lying around. You wont regret it.
