More About the Author

As a young child, Ben Nesvig didn't talk much. Instead, he opted to create a running commentary in his head as the main source of entertainment. Those years of silent perception have sharpened his observational skills and given us the insights of a hyper-vigilant mind. From the topics of turkey bacon to public restrooms, Ben uses writing to delve into the minutiae of everyday life and expose the humor in it.

First of all... as an Amazonian (woman who buys way too many books) I'm always suspicious of the first couple of reviews if they're really good. They could be written by friends who don't want the author sleeping on their couch anymore; or people being blackmailed by the author to say something good or the details of that lost weekend in high school will be his/her next book (videos on Youtube); or the 5-starred reviewers are related to the writer.

I am not Ben Nesvig's mother. I am a real reader. This is a very funny book. Really.

I would write more except I have to go eat a couple of ice cream sandwhiches because the 3-minute microwave pizza burned the roof of my mouth.

Five stars for laugh-out-loud-literature. I eagerly await the 3-D movie.

This books had me laughing out loud from early on. All of these things that we do in first world countries are so true!

I'm surprised at what a high quality book this is. I'm pretty skeptical of new ebooks with no ratings, but previewing it on Amazon hooked my attention. I think the author is going places. Keep it up!

This was one of the few books that was actually able to keep my attention. I am not a huge reader but this book was hilarious. It's a quick read packed with numerous rants on many of the daily "problems" I face. The rant on self-checkout lines needs to be read by every idiot at my grocery store.

The book was so fun to read and I read it in one sitting! I was like a crazy person laughing out loud to myself. With the food issues and the annoyance with hotel beds I found myself cracking up and wanting to share with friends.

Ben's sarcastic tone a-la David Sedaris was refreshing to read. I usually read more crime thrillers and this book was a welcome change to the books I usually read.

Thanks for a great read and for making me feel better about all the times I complain about my iPhone battery dying and my iced tea being too caffeinated and all the other first world problems I complain about ruining my life!

This book blatantly lays out all the things wrong in this messed up world we were born in to. All the unfairness and annoying things that other people do are spelled out for us. My thoughts have finally been marked on paper and I feel normal because someone else feels the same way! Thank you, Ben Nesvig, for letting me know it's okay to be annoyed. And I was going to join a support group.

Very humorous and quick read. I found many of the "rants" funny because they were so true. I loved his perspective

My husband downloaded a sample of this book then kept me awake laughing. After downloading the rest, he has kept me up every night this week (yes, a First World problem Ben forgot to mention...) so I had to give it a read myself. All I have to say is now I'm the one keeping him awake. Great book and a must read for anyone who is reading this!
