This is such a funny collection of comics, you will be crying and laughing for hours on end. The quality of the book it self is kind of if-ish but the content more than make ups for it. Scott Meyer's web comic, and his two accompanying books are absolutely awesome, you will definitely enjoy the jokes inside this book, and there is something for every person out there.

If you like your comics on the edge, you will love this book. The layout is not in the least bit weird: four square panels with people talking. On the other hand, the topics and the views on life are wilder than anything you'll see in mainstream comics. Scott Meyer dishes it out as well as he takes it. It is the Far Side meets Dilbert though lots of popular culture.

Basic Instructions is one of my favorite comic strips. Unlike some comic strips where you are lucky to get one laugh per strip, Scott Meyer has multiple punchlines per strip. Everyone has their own brand of humor, but this one hits me perfectly. I highly recommend it.

I don't know if it's just my copy, or a bad production run, or the age of the book (five years is not terribly old for a paperback IMHO), but mine is falling apart in the first dozen pages. Otherwise the material is top-notch funny.

Basic Instructions is full of good tips on how to live life, even if you are not a sci-fi buff.
