You're Only Human: A Guide to Life (Mini-Review)

By: The Gecko (allegedly)
Release Date: April 23, 2013
Published by: Workman Publishing
Genre(s): Humor

My Review: (4/5 stars*)

I will make this short and brief. This was a cute little book that has a bunch of laughs to go with it. It delivers humorous points about why we're all human and I think it's enjoyably entertaining. The fact that it's supposedly told by the charmingly funny Gecko from Geico only makes it even more intriguing. You're Only Human is written with intellect and wit that makes it appealing to anyone looking for a quick, fun read. I wish that it had more text as it's comprised of lots of doodles and illustrations which make up at least 80% of the book itself. Overall it will take you less than an hour to finish and it'll give you a good laugh. It's the perfect book companion for car travel or if you just have some time to kill and are in need of some quirky amusement; this will provide you with that! 


At last, The Gecko has written a book!

You know him and love him as one of the most famous characters on television, that humble, hardworking spokeslizard with the fetching accent. Turns out there s so much more to him. He s a philosopher, an aphorist, a humorist, an artist, a warm companion, a natural storyteller and, in a grand tradition, a keenly observant and wise outsider who in the course of living and traveling among us has discovered quite a lot about the things that make us human. Figuratively speaking, of course. You re Only Human is his brilliant take on people, written and illustrated with considerable charm.

He makes curious and interesting observations on everything from dreams to job interviews to adversity, Twitter to the Golden Rule (it s not what you think it is) to talking animals: I m really not sure what all the fuss is about. Lots of animals talk, including humans. The bigger question is, what do you have to say worth listening to?

You re Only Human will reveal a remarkable character who is equally at home discussing the secrets of the universe, and pie and chips. How lucky we are to publish his first book.
