I just finished reading through all of the "search inside this book" pages--including clicking "surprise me" as many times as I could. I was laughing so hard! If I was at home, I would have been cracking up (out loud), but since I was at work, I just had to hold my mouth shut and settle for the silent, shaking laughter. I can't wait to buy this book!

Tyler Stanton has written an incredibly funny book. His humorous insights into everyday life allows you to laugh a little in the midst of a stress-filled life. This book is great for reading in the "special place" or when you need a stress-reliever.

The only complaint I had about Everyday Absurdities is that minutes after purchasing it, my Kindle was flung from a moving vehicle and destroyed. Now I am stuck with a busted screen with Emily Dickinson staring at me. Let's be honest, nobody should have to live with being haunted by Emily Dickinson. It's terrifying. The whole e-ink thing makes it just really creepy. It's like my Kindle has been turned into a window to the afterlife, and Emily Dickinson is REALLY interested in what I'm doing.

Am I saying that by buying this book, Tyler Stanton will destroy your Kindle? No. I'm not. Especially not if you buy the actual hard copy of the book. It's hard to get a Kindle destroyed if you don't own a Kindle.

Regardless, I'm almost 78% sure that what happened to me was an isolated incident, and Tyler Stanton is NOT to blame for this. It's probable that I left the Kindle on top of the vehicle, so I am to blame. Part of me still has doubts, I'll admit it, but otherwise, you're probably safe.

Everyday Absurdities was funny and educational while it lasted, though.

I paid $7.99 for this book but I would have gladly paid $8.00; you can quote me on that.

I feel the need to clarify that though my name is "Stanton", I do not know nor am I related to Tyler Stanton. Although, my mother's maiden name is Stanton; so that could all be a lie and we just don't know that we're related. There's literally no way to tell with these things.

I would advise everyone to buy this book and give it to their children when they hit puberty.

That's all I have to say on the matter.

Thank you for your time,
Stanton

THIS was my original review "I haven't read this book, but people I think are quite funny say that it's a funny book. I trust these people. I probably wouldn't trust them with my children, my bank account, or my car, but for humorous things...100% trust. I have also read the cover. Completely. It's not funny. It's plain. But, I'm guessing that it is a juxtaposition of a humorless exterior against the humorous inside, or if our will, a donut with sprinkles...turned inside out. Because if it was just a cheap graphic designer or just laziness, that would not be funny. It would be sad. However, dark humor is indeed (mostly) funny, at least to me, and it could be that too. It's a benefit of the doubt sort of thing here. I don't want to trifle with details. Suffice it to say that a cover can be trivial in this case, technically, but that wouldn't be clever. It would be predictable. Excellent humor is anything but that. So, I guess ironical is the word I'm looking for....and ...wait for it...found. Yep, found it. Ironical.

This book is the best ironical book I have never read. And I mean that.

If I were going to read a book like this, I would pick this one first. But actually, I already read "Stuff Christians Like" which is trivial and humorous too. So, I guess I can't do that. But, if I were going to pick a second funny, but trivial book, this would be my second, third, or fifth choice. My fourth choice would be "The Shack". That's been decided for a while.

But I would hope that I could just borrow it from someone, because you can see all Tyler's stuff totally free on YouTube, and I'd feel like a tool shelling out actual money for this paper version of sketch videos.

A small little pamphlet full of elite humor, sarcasm, and wit. Read and chuckle... and then pretend you came up with the material when you share it with your friends later. Truly points out some wonderful "Everyday Absurdities". Five stars.

If you like Tyler's blog, you love the book. However trying to understand the mindset of this man as he lives his life outloud for our pleasure is a full time job.
