The book is attractively put together but filled with the weakest and lamest come backs there are. It's as if a twelve year old put this together.
Here are some of the insults and comebacks they give you:
"You still think you can be anything you want -- and get paid for it."
"Are you still paying off your student loans to poseur school?"
"Don't bother me; I'm living happily ever after."

There is nothing in here you would use in regular conversation. Nothing to keep in your arsenal to bust out, spur of the moment.
The book is not funny at all, so it's not even enjoyable to just flip through. Thumbing through the thing you're struggling to find at least one that is humorous. They lack all originality. Majority of the things written in here I learned in the early '90s, in grade school. The other half are the type of slogans you'd see on a fat kids t-shirt, like "Did you take the short bus to school?"

There are tons of books on Amazon filled with wit and humour, but this ain't one. This book is a waste of time.

Sure, some of the one-liners are humorous, but not nearly so much as I had hoped. Still, the "Lines for All Occasions" series does make an interesting coffee table set. I've found that people are far more likely to pick one of these up and flip through it than they will other books.

The comebacks and insults in this book are truly lame. Most were old, bad lines. I was embarrassed just reading these let alone using them.

I ordered this from Amazon after flipping through it in a store. The pages I read in the store must have contained the only witty, clever retorts in the book. For the most part these are dumb, truly insulting or both. I bought this as a gift but ended up not giving it to the intended giftee.

It's okay, and the idea is funny. But there are some "comebacks" that are really old or dated. When I asked my teenager his comment is "very lame."

Not what I was expecting. THey were seriously just insults - not particularly witty or the type of thing you would really say.

Even though a number of these "insults" and "comebacks" are somewhat dated, and as a result, "cheesy", overall they are funny, and quite a few are clever. Although this book is purely meant as entertainment, there are a few nuggets you can memorize and unleash at any given appropriate time!
