The essays were fantastic, and they didn't have anything to do with drunken children. You'll have to read the story to understand the reference; I'm not going to give it away! ;) This is warped humor with adult themes. If it were a movie, it would be rated "R."
There are several categories listed in the contents: Family, Education, Biology, Christmas, Enterprise, Order, Celebrity, God, and Death. Each essay is listed in the table of contents, and the author's approach to each subject is unique. They are hyperlinked to the text, which is very convenient. And be sure to read the preface, footnotes, etc., which are also hyper-linked. They are funny, too.
Well, McQuinn's book isn't groundbreaking in any pushing-the-envelope sense, but it is informed by the same dry, sly, deadpan sensibility. (Example: There is a transcript of a conversation between a mom and dad and their son, where the parents explain that they are getting a divorce, and they are getting a divorce because of what a disappointment the son is. If you like that skewed take on society, then you'll like this book.)
The other thing is that this is not self-deprecating humor, where all the laughs are based on what a lame, sappy, spineless, fumbler the author is. I don't get those at all, but there are a bunch of them out there. This isn't one of them.
So, while not the most hilarious thing ever written, this book has a nice vibe, some sly lines, a few honest chuckles, and an overall engaging appeal. Worth a try, or at least a look.
Looking forward on hearing more from Dan McQuinn. I would even pay for his next book!
The author has a twisted mind and has a great way of putting the reader front-row-center with a wonderful view of how it works.
Read this book! You won't be sorry. If you're easily offended by satirical social commentary, read it anyway! You'll love it!
McQuinn covers a myriad of topics in a variety of ways. Subjects such as Christmas, parenting, and celebrities, are touched upon through letters, conversations, daily schedules and short paragraphs among others. The consistent item throughout is, of course, the low-brow, sophomoric humor.
With that, I suppose those who enjoy this type of thing may find it amusing.

This is a good book for fantasy readers. It kept me interested and I will search out books by this author. Definitely worth the pricePublished on September 16, 2013 by Amazon Customer
You can skip this one. It's not funny, not insightful, not interesting, no redeeming value of any kind. Don't waste your money.Published on February 24, 2013 by rabidreader
If you're grumpy with life (temporarily), this quick read will pull you right out of it. It will make you laugh at things a happy person would scoff at. Awesome little read.Published on January 30, 2013 by B. Daniel
Went down hill fast. Glad it was free or I would be upset. I now know why it was freePublished on December 27, 2012 by Amazon Customer
I should have looked closer or read a sample. This is def not my kind of humor. I feel bad giving it a poor rating since i do hold myself responsible for downloading it.Published on November 14, 2012 by 5blueeyed*w*mama
In my opinion, this was so boring that I couldn't get past a couple of pages. I was hoping to find a good comedy book to read, but this wasn't it. Read morePublished on August 1, 2012 by Gipper
