Format: Paperback
I'm confused. Is this a discussion board about pizza? I'm trying to review a book that has 94/96 non-pizza-related pages. Am I in the right place?

This book is smart, light-hearted, and fun to read. The authors poke fun at some of New York's most well-known "attractions", but it's the charts/graphs/photos that go with each chapter that really tickle me pink. Though this book remains remarkably neutral throughout, New Yorkers already seem to be getting riled up about it. Those guys must really hate ambivalence. Either that, or they are totally uninterested in banishing stereotypes that New Yorkers get easily riled up.

Honestly, this book is cute and far from offensive. It's a great gift that even New Yorkers would enjoy. (Ideally, New Yorkers that moved to New York within the last 6-9 months from California.)

I feel relatively neutral about book reviews, however I am making an exception for this. I have lived in New York for about a year now. Yesterday I saw this at the checkout stand at B&N, and just seeing the cover made me laugh out loud. I already felt 53% more sane than I did prior to seeing the cover (exact statistic...if I could do footnotes in this review I would put one here and write "not an exact statistic"). I bought it and love it. Thanks guys for telling it like it is. Everybody is so damn hopped up about the magical amazingness of new york. They're not fooling us.

It's certainly there. I've added it to our book collection, so you can't say we don't have it. And I read it. I thought 'oh, here's a book to read' and it was. It filled up some time that was going to go to waste, so I'm grateful for that.

Great title. Fun book. I lived in NYC for more than 6 years and often thought the same neutrality about such a terrifc city. It's different when you live there day in and out. These guys are spot on. Finally another side of the story.

Format: Paperback
This is a short little book that *wants* to be very very funny, but in reality, strains for laughs on nearly every page.

The pages on "Katz's Delicatessen," "Sex and the City," the U.N. and "Street Food" are the funniest, mostly because they are true, so there's none of the effort a reader feels on the other pages.

I surely wouldn't pay full price for this book (my copy was a gift). A few smiles, but no real laughs here.

On a side note, it's depressing to note that the book was "manufactured in China."
