Review: Cosbyology: Essays and Observations from the Doctor of Comedy

User Review  - Joseph - Goodreads

This was better than his Love and Marriage book. The way the book read, it seemed like he took a tape recording of it and then it was typed up to really capture the way he tells his stories/jokes. Read full review
