If you have never watched an episode of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" then this book is not for a jabroni like you.
But if you are a glue-huffing degenerate who enjoys the antics of the most wretched gang of drunks, this is a self-help book for written just for you suckers, er, geniuses.
The funniest sections were Charlie's by far. It's ironic that an illiterate's writings and rants were the best. Love his advice for stalking the one you love. His avian brilliance also reminds us why he is the pre-eminent expert on US bird law.
And his recipes for making cheese are priceless. Remember that old Polly-O String Cheese Commercial? Just order a pie, but hold everything but the cheese!
Other cheese making recipes include stealing from rat traps or making your own cheese with orange juice and half and half, letting it sit around for a couple of weeks behind a toilet...and enjoy!
That Charlie, he's a cheese-rat genius.
Dennis' sections are lucid and intelligent. He actually gives good advice on how to not get stuck doing Charlie work and how a man should properly apply makeup (to his face, abs and male parts). Dennis may be a potential serial killer, is questionably a rapist and absolutely is a voyeur, but other than that, he's a golden god with a body sculpted to proportions of Michaelangelo's David, so what he says matters.
I love Frank's advice how to manipulate everybody. That man knows his stuff. And his recipes! Mmm-mmm! Now I know how to make a delicious rum ham using only a canned ham, a few bottles of rum, a gun and several bullets. Plus Italian parsley for garnish to make it classy. There's his blue-jean tea recipe which require crabs dredged out from the polluted Delaware river.Read more ›
It is essential reading not only for the Always Sunny fan, but for anyone wishing to be a knowledgeable, well-rounded, decent human being.
I'm very happy to have a canonical recipe for rum ham, as the other recipe I found on the internet--while delicious--needed far more booze: that and the raccoon recipe together are worth the price of the book. I was also pleased by the information I learned from Mr. Kelly's expert piece--nay--dissertation on Bird Law....sparrows...that chapter will be an important reference to me for years to come.
Having read the book and taken the quizzes, I feel like a better person already--my highly-effective four-hour giant is indeed awake. Get a copy and awaken yours today.
The chapters are extremely short and end abruptly, and most of the book is strung together with some weak filler material and attempts at meta-humor that get particularly exhausting after the first few "editor's notes" and footnotes. The rest of it reads like the typical banter of The Gang, and you can practically hear them yelling over each other as you read it. Unfortunately, this is far less entertaining in print than it is on the screen.
While there is a chapter or two from each character that contains the horrible "advice" you'd expect, it's quite scattered and mostly just rehashing old jokes and situations from the series. You don't have to be a hardcore fan of the series to pick up on subtle inside jokes or references in these pages; there aren't any. If you're even vaguely familiar with their most popular episodes, you can expect to be bludgeoned repeatedly with those same jokes for most of the book.
If your sense of humor is mostly regurgitating funny one-liners and pop culture references and you also enjoy watching It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, you're probably going to love this book. If you just enjoy the show and don't feel like reliving it, you should probably wait until you find it in a bargain bin before adding it to your collection.
I could see Charlie, Mac, Sweet Dee, and Frank saying everything in this book, mannerism and all, in my head so clearly. This book is pretty bananas and it takes a certain kind of person to appreciate the genius of the unapologetic, politically incorrect comedic storytelling of Sunny and the ridiculousness of us human beings (which is why this is so entertaining, oh my goodness) so if you’re going into this book blind… I don’t even know what to tell you.
This show is shameless in all of its truth and it’s glorious. So Sunny fans, you’re in for quite a treat with this book.

Lots of callbacks to the show, sure, but I think I was hoping for more new jokes. The word "anyway" is the first word in way too many sentences. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Ryan Koch
