This book was a gift for my daughter's 13-year-old friend. The book was funny, but contained some very mature content.

I bought this book for my 14-year-old daughter, and luckily I thumbed through it before she did. There are blurbs that are borderline pornographic. If you don't want your kid enlightened about things like vibrat..., masterba...., various boob comments, etc. Avoid this book. I am pretty lenient about things, but this book is super crude in many places.

I've been a fan of this website for a long time, and admittedly just was into it for the hilarious texts. When I saw that a book was coming out, I didn't know what I could find in the book that wasn't on the website...man, was I surprised!

First there are mostly new texts, which had me laughing out loud with friends for a few minutes. However, what really got me was the way they organized the book. They've made something called the "Seven Phases of Textual Maturity" which, while not only clever, are actually also really true.

They have some clever analogies about how the cell phone has essentially made the kids the teachers of the parents, and that they've watched them grow up like children and eventually be self-sustaining "mature texters." Seriously, I can't recommend this book enough for everyone. Parents included! I've picked up a few more copies for gifts, and I think that everyone I'm going to give it to will love it.

I will warn you though, some of these are not for the feint of heart: there are extremely explicit texts in this book, but I, for one, was not offended. It shows the true and gritty texts and sides of parents that some people don't expect. Originally I thought they were there for shock value, because I had never gotten anything like that form my parents, but since talking with my friends and sharing these texts with them, they have told me some ridonculous stories of explicit texts from their own parents..so apparently it really happens!

I bought this to share a good laugh with my teen daughter, as a christmas present. Before I wrapped it, I cracked it open. I realized that this is not for kids. It isn't really funny, but rather a bunch of texts that someone over their word processor must have said to themselves, "wouldn't it be funny if someone texted this?" Then they seemed to have written it down and published a book. A few were funny, the rest were just dumb.

I bought this as a gift for my 16-year-old son based on the book's cover. Fortunately, I leafed through it before wrapping it - although there were a few funny entries, far too many were vulgar and distasteful (e.g. a mom texting her son about the smell of his semen, a dad texting his son about his mother's breasts). I offered it to my friend with college-aged sons, but she didn't think they'd want it either. They appreciate raunchy humor, but this is merely raunchy.

Once I opened the book I couldn't put it down until I had finished. It was so funny and I was able to relate to all hilarious text that the parents were sending out. Great gift and fun book to add the the collection. If you like Ted L. Nancy you will love this book!!

I bought this for my 13 year old son, without reading the reviews. Luckily I glanced through before giving it to him. Most of the content is sexually raunchy and tasteless, going more for sexual "gross-out" kind of humor. Even my husband found the book pretty bad, and we are pretty liberal parents. Very disappointed.

My daughter bought this book about a year ago, and I found it really funny. The price was down to about $4 and change, so I bought one for myself. She bought some other books about funny texts just like this, but this was the funniest out of all of them.

Bought this to be a fun book to leave around house for kids, friends - family conversation. Some content not at all appropriate for children - not even teens. It's in the "donate" pile. Not what I expected.

I thought it was rude, crude and just plain stupid. I can't believe anyone would text their kids the stuff that these parents supposedly texted. It was a complete waste of time and money.
