Shut up, I'm Talking - Book Review

This is the first biography I've reviewed, and possibly the only non-school related one I've ever read. And it was a good place to start. Mr. Levey tells the most impossibly hilarious stories, made that much more amusing because they're all true.

A Canadian citizen, he worked as a speech writer for the Israeli delegation to the United Nations in New York while, ostensibly, getting his law degree. He later did a stint in Israel working at the Prime Minister's office during a very turbulent time in Israeli politics.

The book tries not to be political, and succeeds for the most part. You get a glimpse of a foreign govenment peppered with amusing anecdotes from his personal life.

Good for anyone looking for something different yet amusing.
