Reviews for Humblebrag: The Art of False Modesty by Harris Wittels
"Harris Wittels is a hilarious performer and writer and with this book he has coined a new term for that thing that drives us crazy. But honestly, I don’t know how I feel about this whole thing. It makes me nervous." -Amy Poehler"Great, Harris. This is a really good use of your time." -Mindy Kaling, comedian and NYT bestselling author of Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?"HUMBLEBRAG: The Art of False Modesty is an amazing assembly of hilariousness and an anthology of heartbreaking insecurity. Enjoy it-but don’t forget how sad it is.” -Sarah Silverman, comedian and New York Times bestselling author of The Bedwetter"I haven’t read this, and never intend to, but Harris is my friend, so I feel obligated to give him a ‘blurb’ for his book. He’s a funny writer…I’m sure it’s not that bad." -Aziz Ansari, comedian, NBC’s Parks and Recreation"I can’t believe they asked me of all people to blurb a bestselling book! Weird." -Bill Simmons, ESPN columnist and New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Basketball"So weird to be asked to write a blurb for this amazing book when they passed over Alec Baldwin, Bono and The Pope. Like I’m ANYWHERE near as important as those guys. I mean, I DO have more Twitter followers than Baldwin. Oh well." -Patton Oswalt, comedian and New York Times bestselling author of Zombie Spaceship Wasteland"Since the dawn of man, bragging has been evolving, growing more elusive and resilient. Thank you, Harris Wittels, for identifying the new strain, the "humblebrag." Humanity is forever in your debt. -Ezra Koenig, lead singer of Vampire Weekend
