    Well, being the author himself, I'm kinda biased towards this book. So I'll just quote from some other readers...From the Amazon.com description: "In a world wherein so much appears to be bizarre, insane, and beyond rational explanation, Secret Agent Reginald Dipwipple knows the insider truth: the world is incredibly incompetent. This is the world he operates in, fighting the good fight against terrorists struggling to make a living through mass intimidation.

A world of acronyms utterly indecipherable to the uninitiated: HUMINT, MASINT, GUTTER, USSR. A world where crises cause comedy. "And Dipwipple delivers.

From the United Nations to divided states, from the science of humor to the art of the bad joke, Dipwipple delivers. From the great questions of theology to the questionable greatness of bureaucracy, Dipwipple delivers. "Dipwipple not only delivers, he takes it back. This is his story."Excerpts from an Amazon.com reviewer (FIVE stars): "It's hard to compare Tongue-Tied With Stomach Knots to anything readily available. Reginald Dipwipple's first novel is a mix of goofy spy-adventure, well-educated travelogue, and digressive covert-intelligence history...This book had me laughing out loud at several points; at several others, I put the book down to do fact-checking/curiosity-satiating on some of the more interesting asides. For example, did you know that a laughing outbreak in 1960's Africa that was so severe that schools had to be shut down?"...At its best, Tongue-Tied is a brilliant work of comedy. Many of the laughs in the book comes from an old-fashioned sense of humor (the "Who's on First?" routine even makes a cameo in one situation) and carefully-worded phrases...It's all light-hearted though, and there's never a joke made in bad taste or at the expense of others...I would recommend Tongue-Tied With Stomach Knots to anyone looking for a sharply-written and smart comedy novel."Excerpts from an Amazon.com reviewer (FIVE stars): "First off, this is a very funny book if nothing else. After reading for a while, I also realized it's very cleverly organized and conceived, almost like the non-cartoon version of anything that Scott Adams has published. It's one of those humor rides that you might have had with an old English teacher, or simply from bouncing off friends from classic lines from movies such as Airplane. It's not serious, it is fun, and definitely suits anyone looking for clever humor which is a category dying in the bookstore these days."Excerpts from KIRKUS REVIEWS: "Punch lines abound in this lighthearted spy comedy. In a literary landscape full of serious spy thrillers, this romp sticks out like a 7-foot clown in a police lineup...[Indeed,] you'd be hard-pressed to find a spy novel that so steadily delivers page after page of one-liners and a plethora of comedic setups and knockdowns. The novel follows Reggie Dipwipple through a Police Academy-esque crash course in spy know-how and history of the SNACKS program, a.k.a. Sublime Nemesis Against Cabal Knaves Supreme (sworn enemies of GUTTER: Gouging Ulterior for Terror, Trafficking and Egomaniacal Rancor). Through his course work and on his first assignment, Dipwipple and the reader learn a great deal of trivia and true spy history...There are a few cringe-worthy puns and jokes you've heard before, but a healthy serving of intelligent comedy and longer setups usually keep the reader's attention on track...No one here is who they seem (even Dipwipple the author has an alias), so character development would seem difficult. Yet the author accomplishes plenty with the goofy material, providing the reader with flawed but fun characters and real bones beneath the comic exterior."Available at http://www.amazon.com/Tongue-Tied-Enl...

    can't finish this one right now. : ( there isn't enough of a story line. The writing style is great, very funny, but it's more like a lot of random history facts all related by the main character, strung together with just enough plot to make it flow
