From Kirkus Reviews, December 15, 1998
Just when it seemed He'd squeezed every last bit of interest out of the "Why..." series, God weighs in, literally (16.7 pounds!!!), with another compendium of poignant and pithy vignettes from life on His planet. Fans will be generally pleased, with something even thrown in for the existentialists and atheists. All in all, another successful effort from the Big Fella.
Philosophy and Religion Editor's Recommended Book
God establishes His existence as an author to be reckoned with in this fine volume, successfully avoiding the self-righteous, sanctimonious sermonizing so typical of most religious writing today. While one may disagree with some of His choices, there's no disagreeing with His passion for the subject matter. Highly recommended, especially at the price.
In one example after another, popular author God provides proof that no matter how bad things are, they can get worse.

EXCELLENT!!! This could be His best book yet!!!
Loved "Why Good Things... " and plan to read it again, soon as I'm finished with the periodontal surgery and the lingering soreness.

I've read all of God's books, even the early novels, and I especially liked the last one, "Why Lightning Strikes Some People and Not Others," so I was prepared to love this one, but it never arrived! Got lost in the mail. So I took a credit and applied it to the Regis Philbin book, the one about his heart attack, which is terrific!

A wonderful value.
I've given copies to everyone in my bible study group. They think I've spent a fortune, when the book's cheaper than a cup of coffee at Denny's.

It's too heavy. Since the UPS man was here the book hasn't moved from its spot next to the phone on the little table in the front hallway.

It's written in plain, easy-to-understand language -- English!
And the Guy's got a sense of humor. Buy it. Leave it in the bathroom. Your friends will thank you, if not your wife.
A reader from London, England, UK , January 13, 1999
Considering my expectations -- a new book by one of my favorite authors -- this was a letdown. The whole thing feels rushed, as if He had a deadline to meet. The low price should be a tip-off.

Better than any of those stupid chicken soup books!
God takes us inside His world of losers, bums, and sleazeballs and delivers a moral haymaker that packs a wallop! If you read one book this year, make it (TITLE HERE).

He should stick to natural disasters
I liked the lightning book, I even liked the one about sinkholes, but when it comes to human nature, God doesn't have a clue. If I rob someone, or shoot them, I should be punished, plain and simple. No twists or turns, no detours -- it's straight to jail, or the electric chair. But God, for cryin' out loud, He lets some of these characters get away with, well, murder! But the price is right, so I'd recommend this book to anyone on a tight budget.
