Format: Paperback
This book is amazing. To everyone who says you can get all this for free on the website: did you even read the book? Or buy it for that matter? I am a huge fan of the site, I check it every day, and I bought this book hoping for new material. I was not let down. There are so many new ones - it is great. Since he only updates his site like once a week, getting like 40 new emails I have never read was a huge treat. My new favorites are the one where he gets some moron to call like five different Pizza Huts, and the one where he is a Vietnam Veteran trying to tell war stories to five year olds. This book is absolutely hilarious. Sure, there are some emails that are on the site already, but he adds commentary and stories to them. Also, some of them are even longer than I remember them being. This book is pure hilarity. A great gift for anyone who isn't easily offended.

The author has taken prank emails to a very funny level. I first learned of his website around 2010/2011 timeframe and I remember spending a lot of time on it, reading each email exchange, and laughing my butt off. Updates to the site grew less frequent until, fast-forward to 2014, it hasn't been updated since June of 2013, and it shows no signs of life at all. As a result, I decided to pony up the cash for his book, reading that it contained "60% content that's not available on [...]." While that may be true, I have to say I'm disappointed for two reasons:
1. The amount of content is rather short. I realize it's not War & Peace, but I didn't imagine knocking it out in under an hour. Several emails are 1 page or less.
2. The quality of content declines as time goes on. In other words, the new stuff isn't as good as his older, original email messages.

I won't launch into a diatribe on whether or not these emails are real or not--that's moot to me, as I'm more interested on the degree to which I enjoyed the stories. But I will say this; if you're buying the book and have never read his site, you'll really like the book. If you're buying this book and you've been a regular visitor to his site, you'll have a mixed review, much like this.

My 22 year old son told me about some of John Lindsay's antics when we were shopping one day. It was a story about his response to a guy looking for "concealed weapons." I laughed so hard just listening to my son describe it that he pulled up the whole story on the internet for me when we got home.

That night I spent too long going through other internet stories. Yes, some of them are beyond my comfort zone and I tried to skip those ones, but others were so hysterical I was afraid my husband or kids would think I was having a heart attack. That's when I learned Lindsay had a book out and - I just had to check it out.

I told my husband I would dog-ear the really funny stories and just counted about 25 dog-ears, so there are many pages in the book that totally cracked me up.

A fun read, but realize you will see a great many "MF's" and other obscene words and some topics. Not for the faint of heart and sometimes too crude for me, but if you appreciate laughing a lot, it's probably good medicine.

Hope this helps someone!

This is one of those books where you'll find yourself actually laughing out loud with each page turn. If you are not familiar with the writers website about the same subject you'll still love every second of reading this. This book is so funny I bought multiple copies to send out as gifts. This book is awesome.

I highly recommend this book for some good laughs. I'm sure you've probably already came across some of his emails that are floating around the web. They are sheer genius. It's an easy read, and short, but full of great stuff.

I'd buy again.

I can't really give this book a 5 stars rating because a number of the pranks countainted within are already available on the website. However, I was far from disappointed with the exclusive pranks. I thought the author would just add those that where not funny enough for the website but boy was I wrong. I had my share of guilty laughs while reading them.

I'm not sure if the author deserves to sell more copies but morality aside, this book is a great read!
