There are so many gems on every page of this book I'm thinking of mounting it on a piece of silver and giving it to my wife as an anniversary ring.

I must admit the title attracted me in the first place having been a former marching band member. Do I need to say much about this book? It is worth every penny (including the shipping). There is much anticipation on this end for Vol. 2. I can't help but think the world should just stop and take time to read this book. Perhaps the world would be a little bit better place. Needless to say, it is extremely enjoyable for the whole family and allows for a different perspective on life...and that isn't a bad thing.

I just got the book in the mail and now I can't pry it from the domineering hands of my two roommates who have no idea who badbanana is. I showed them a snippet and told them how awesome my next two days were gonna be and they've sat on the couch tittering like a couple of babies on nitrous oxide for the past hour. So, uh, well done!

This book is refreshingly funny, simple, for a busy day and age and will make you smile book. I read a couple pages everyday and it always brings a smile to my face even on a stressful day.

I tweet, Well, I don't actually tweet a lot but I have a Twitter account because I love to follow certain people on there.
By far, my favorite person to follow is Bad Banana, aka Tim Seidell. I have been looking forward to and laughing at his comments for the last year.
And, now he has a book, a wonderful, terse, hysterical, pithy, amazing little book of his musings. AND, to make it even better, Brian Andreas, he of StoryPeople fame and fabulousness, had contributed lots of funny drawings to go along with the quotes.

This guy makes me laugh. Hard and Long. Loud and Lusty. This book is wonderful and I cannot wait for more, many more. But, for now, a lot of stockings I know will have this gem sticking out from them this Christmas

I can't wait for them all to "get" the title of my review! (You all too....HUGE laugh!)

This book is genius. Simple, short, and sweet. I must embrace the use of illustrations also, a true way to my heart. The short one liners will deff get you to crack up for sure. I highly recommend it.

Just got a glimpse of what was in this book today, and it made me laugh- a good, solid laugh! Cannot wait to read this whole book. This book reminds me of the best of Saturday Night Live. Nice work!

Gems of humor scattered about like empty beer cans after a shooting-empty-beer-cans party. I learned about the author via his Twitter persona: badbanana. It was a lot of fun to have so many funny comments collected in one convenient ebook.
