In time for his upcoming campaign for governor of Texas, Friedman compiles his hilarious, insightful, and raunchy one-liners in this Little Red Book.

Cowboy Logic is filled with the bons mots of our favorite Texas legend, "the oldest Jew in Texas who doesn't own real estate."Complementing his ageless (and outrageous) maxims organized thematically are original cartoons and illustrations by the brilliant Ace Reid.

A Texan relative once introduced an old friend of his to me. They passed what sounded to be reminiscences of theirs with enduring crinkly-eyed smiles and grins. After closing-off the seemingly off-handed encounter, my relative pointed out the covert subtlties of the preceding event as we walked away. The old-timer had begun with seemingly self-deprecating remarks -- wrapping these around hidden and ironic, good-natured teasing and delayed-action barbs: the lovable Texas Two-step. Old-timers will give you the "high sign" -- that little wiggle of the pointer finger as you pass each other's pick-up trucks on a country road. They acknowledge that you may be a fool and/or a king, but we may need to help each other down the road. Life is you and it is I and the daylight between you and I. This book is a Texas high sign.

If you can appreciate Kinky Friedman as a singer/song writer, humorist and sometime politician running for Governor of Texas; you will enjoy this collection of witty statements. The book is set up on chapters by subject and expression of view consists of a sentence or two or at most a short paragraph. Very much like taking Will Rogers famous one liners and dedicating a page to each. The book is best for your office shelf to pull off for a laugh or two or to entertain someone cooling their heels in your office. My favorite expression actually is a cowboy expression, "Never drink downstream from a herd."

We made this purchase for a friend that lives in Colorado and is very much enamored with Kinky Friedman. Who would have thought!

I bought the book because I saw his interview on "60 minutes" and the man was hilarious. This book is very easy to read, has some interesting 1-liner and cartoons but it is OK, nothing too exciting. Most of the funny 1-liner was repeated in the "60 minutes" interview, so...watch the interview instead of spending the money to buy the book. Oh well...

This book is very funny. We read this book at a friend's house and really liked the book so thought we would get one for our house to finish reading. Would definately recomend this book to read.

When I read the editorial review that this book was full of one liners, I didn't realize that each page of this 198 page dud has only one line. This could have been completed in I would geuss 12 pages. So don't waste your money, unless you just want to contribute to Kinky's political campaign.

I bought this book on a hope that Mr. Friedman was more comedian than politician or rightwing ideologue. In such cases one often is likely to find nuggets of truth not to be found elsewhere amidst these mostly anti-intellectual diatribes.

That did indeed prove to be the case here. What I had in mind was the hilarious humor of the type deployed by the Blue Collar quartet of Bill Engvald, Ron White, Larry the Cable Guy and Jeff Foxworthy. But it seems that they have exhausted that trope, leaving little room for the likes of Mr. Friedman.

And while there are a few nice zingers among these nearly 200 pages, on the whole, one or two moderately weak anti-intellectual maxims per page hardly seemed to warranted a complete book.

Undoubtedly this book was intended as just a slick way to help Kinky defray some of the costs of his Gubernatorial campaign run. Too bad I caught that train late. Even so, here are my 25 favorite maxims from the book:

--It's okay to think you're a cowboy - unless you happen to run into someone who thinks he's an Indian.
--Be yourself - that way you never have to remember who you are.
--Give a cowpoke enough rope and he'll either hog-tie himself or start up a rope factory.
--Leap sideways before your karma runs over your dogma.
--No matter where you go, sooner or later you will see yourself in the rear view mirror.
--The only two good balls I ever hit was when I stepped on the garden rake.
--Where there is a will there is a lawyer.
--May all your juries be well hung.
--A perfect childhood is the worse possible preparation for life.
--The important things in life are not things.
--You can lead a politician to water but you can't make him think.
--No teacher left behind,
--A fool and his money are soon elected.
--If you elect me as the first Jewish Governor of Texas, I will drop the speed limit to 54.95
--I'm for the little fellers - not the Rockefellers.
--The Democrats and the Republicans have become the same guy admiring himself in the mirror.
--One of these days they are going to make a life out of my movie.
--I am a giver in a taker's body.
--I am sixty-one but I read at the sixty-three level.
--I have always been searching for a lifestyle that does not require my presence.
--If you have seen one Sistine Chapel you have seen them all.
--We Jews believe it was Santa Claus that killed Jesus.
--The greatest sermons are not delivered - they are lived.
--Let Saigons be bygones.
--There is a fine line between fiction and non-fiction, and I believed I snorted it in 1976.
And the best of all:
--Mama, when I grow up I am going to be a musician. Make up your mind son because you can't be both.
