One More Thing by B.J. Novak

If you need to laugh, escape, or be entertained, the book "One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories" by B.J.Novak may be just what you need. The stories are light hearted, engaging, and quirky. I found myself coming back to read certain short stories over and over again because of how they made me laugh or because of their gentle insight. 

I think my favorite tale is "Walking on Eggshells (or When I Loved Tony Robbins)". But the one that seems to linger in my heart is "The Ambulance Driver". 
I'm so impressed with Novak's imagination, creativity, and ability to draw a person in. Being able to consistently entertain is a gift and his dialogue skills are a marvel. He has become one of my favorites.
