This guy's a riot. I saw a copy of this book in a bar and got my own copy at Borders. Even when I re-read sections I've already laughed at, I laugh again and so do my friends when I tell them. How about another 501 more Great things, mR. Taussig? signed, waiting in New Mexico

This book helped me realize how I needed to accept who I am even with my psycho-controlling mother.

My mom and I were shopping and she picked up this book, opened it and started laughing away. It so happened she had opened it to the "you can always say the right words in at least one other language" and, seeing as I speak four, it fit me perfectly. We drove home laughing (even had to pull off the road once) at the really true (well, at least to me) witty aspects of Gay life. I think my favourite is surely: I didn't choose to be Gay. I just got lucky:) Though I'd probably be better described with "you look like a Ralph Lauren model" or "you can dance". Girlfriend...you'd better buy this, it's fabulous.

Not a single dumb cliche in the book. I spent a lot of time reading these to friends, and they loved it too. I really recommend it.

I should be able to say 503 great things about a book with a title like this. But in reality, I have one great thing to say: it didn't cost me an arm and a leg so I don't feel so bad tossing it on the shelf and forgetting about it. Sure, some of the "great things" were funny and I'll probably be saying "I wasn't born gay. It was sheer luck" for a long time, but much of the book is based on ridiculously outdated stereotypes. I give it one star, but only because Amazon wouldn't let me skip that question.

This is the funniest book I think I've ever read. Obviously the queen from Richmond was all ragged out when she read it, because I howled at every page of this book. Really edgy stuff. Enjoy!
