    This is a great book for fans of the Mobituaries podcast Mo Rocca presents fascinating anecdotes of the deceased who led interesting lives that mattered The conversational style of writing is light witty and informative These short biographies are delivered as only Mo Rocca can chock full of complexity and nuance simplicity and brilliance

    I've been a fan of Mo Rocca's since his days on The Daily Show If you haven't listened to the podcast this book is based on you should The book covers most of the topics from the podcast in addition to several new ones The basis of the book and podcast is to bring unheralded and forgotten people fads and events from history that have been forgotten over the years to light Mo has a wry wit that comes through even so in the audiobook

    I am so pleased that a few of my favorite podcasters are writing books Last week I read Mike “Dirty Jobs” Rowe’s “The Way I Heard It” and this week Mo Rocca’s “Mobituaries Great Lives Worth Reliving” Thoughtful witty and heartfelt storytelling about fascinating subjects He is a true professional down to earth and has done his homework in research and interviewing The I learn about Mo and his extensive resume the I’m a fan Thanks to Simon Schuster for the ARC in exchange for my honest review

    The best adjective to describe Mo Rocca is curious From a very early age his seemingly insatiable curiosity has led him to seek out facts particularly in areas in which he is passionate about subjects as diverse as they are intriguing This may have started earlier but his love of the 1974 World Book Encyclopedia and continued fascination with its depth of interest led to his having it today line the walls of his bedroom Mobituaries the podcast led to this eponymous book in which Rocca provides sendoffs for people and things and even places that didn't get their just due when they passed on He provides a brief history of why the person place or thing was important and worthy of remembrance There is so much to love in this book As a contributor to CBS Sunday Morning he talked about his podcast and book which covers material not on the podcast and aired the fascinating segment on Herbert Hoover One of his loves is visiting Presidents' homes and libraries even the disgraced bad ones Will he ever visit Trump Tower? I experienced his passion for musical comedy once at a reunion of the cast and creators Stephen Sondheim of Into the Woods What makes these essays so much fun to read is hearing in my head his distinctive voice since there is so much humor and warmth throughout Very very highly recommended

    I really enjoyed reading strange bits of history which are unknown to me This book is based on podcasts which I am unfamiliar with but I believe most people will enjoy it

    This is probably best as a book you put out for the “occasional” read so that the reader can peruse it for the people or things they find the most interesting Each short chapter reads like the research information andor script that would accompany the podcast of Mobituaries and as such is best read in short spurts I believe the book would also be preferable as an audiobook one might choose to listen to as they do their daily exercises for exampleAs someone who has enjoyed various reports from Mo Rocca particularly on CBS Sunday Morning I could often hear his voice giving the information particularly when he would interject some of his clever dry humor Those were perhaps the best passages for me with one exception As an Auburn University alumna I enjoyed reading his information that gave the history of Auburn’s famous tradition of papering Toomer’s corners and the story of how the trees were poisoned by a somewhat overzealous to put it politely Alabama fanIt was also interesting to me to learn the history of the two schools which went a long way toward explaining the great divide Not being a native of the state I never uite understood the depth of passion that I often found existed between the two sets of supporters The MOBITUARIES’ chapter gave me an insight I didn’t have before and also is the best example for why I think this book is best for those who want to look in depth at a particular subject or individual I could easily see this book in a doctor’s waiting room on a coffee table or in the basket of “while you’re here” reading people sometimes put in their bathroomMy thanks to Simon and Schuster Publishing and NetGalley for providing me an Advanced Digital Read copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review

    I love this guy so obviously I have enjoyed his contributions to CBS over time This book is witty profound and educational in turns I wish I could include some of the brilliant uotes from this book but I have been privileged to get a copy from Net Galley prior to publication date I don't think it's allowedThe research by Rocca was extensive and the title tells it all as it is packed with information about the lives of very interesting people throughout the agesDon't miss this book if you love Mo RoccaNet Galley Advanced Reader Copy

    This would be a great book for trivia buffs a lot of random factspersonal observations which the author by including the subjects of these mobituaries in this very long list the book are declared dead underappreciated abandoned abruptly ceased circumstantially eclipsed no longer relevant to mainstream culture The mobits are tinged with nostalgia a sprinkle of wistfulness genuine regret and some shaded chiding There is cleverness present in this book but it does go on It was a good tweener book for me I'd done some heavy books and needed a book like this between heavy topics It was just right for that purpose I listened to this one If reading was involved I'm not sure I would have completed it This is the kind of book that to me promotes casual reading something that you can pick up and put down at any point with completion truly being optionalThat's 25 stars rounded up

    I thought it would be fitting to have my final book of 2019 be one about odd and witty obituaries The end of the year is filled with lists including those who have died that year We'll remember those people but what about the people we have forgotten or obscure details about a person which we never knew about That's Mobituaries I’ve enjoyed Mo Rocca’s humor for many years and find his appearances on CBS Sunday Morning very amusing and insightful His Mobituaries segment is always a treat which led me to his Podcast His book Mobituaries is simply of a good thing Lots of interesting bits of information some trivial some simply lost to history presented with Rocca’s shrewd wit If you’re a fan of history or Hollywood these “Mobits” will be especially interesting I fully expect there to be editions from Mo Very entertaining

    25 stars It was alright an average bookThere were a few stories that were really interesting and had me reading selections out loud to others But mostly it was dry and a tad bit boring I was disappointed by how many of the mobits were about things instead of people
