"My friend, comedian Mark Schiff, has written a very funny book called 'Why Not? Lessons on Comedy, Courage and Chutzpah.' It's the closest thing you can get to hearing Mark tell hilarious stories, which is one of my favorite things to do." - Jerry Seinfeld
"Mark Schiff is a master storyteller! Not only do his stories make you both laugh and cry, but more importantly they make you want to be a better person. There are so many life lessons that Schiff indirectly teaches you by the experiences he had throughout his life that shape the exceptional human being he is today. This read is a must!" 
"Mark Schiff's masterpiece, "Why Not," is as hilariously funny as it is tasteful and deep -- an all-too-rare combination in modern times. Mark merits every one of the stellar endorsements he has received, and many more. "Why Not" has my highest recommendation."
"Author Mark Schiff has the ability to make you laugh until it hurts as well as making you think about important issues which on so many occasions... brought me to (sentimental and happy) tears. Terrific book! Terrific comedian! Terrific writing!"
