Format: Paperback
I'm so glad I can get this book over Amazon.Com. I never bought this book, but I have read it cover-to-cover many times in bookstores. I'm was too law-abiding to steal it, and I'd be embarrassed to admit I actually bought the thing.
Anyway, the book went out of print and I never saw it again and I rued the fact I never bought it. But joy! Here it is on Amazon.Com! I'm not letting it get away this time. I'll tell anyone who asks I shoplifted it.
This book totally had my number, it's very funny to see how she had pegged my lifestyle; or how I conformed to the book before reading it. I especially enjoyed "The Goatee through History"

I remember when Sarah Dunn was hanging out in
slacker coffee shops in Philly, like the Last Drop, writing this book. Now's she's moved on up to NYC and is writing for Michael J. Fox's Spin City TV show. Not a bad career move. But Sarah, be assured, the slackers are still slacking in your old haunts.

This book, with its chaotic layout and graphics, its entertaining prose, and nail-on-the-head insights is a must for Generation X navel-gazers. My kid sister and I bookend this group (I'm 30, she's 20) and Sarah's book made for a great gift for the l'il shrimp.

Every generation needs a field guide; Sarah's is ours.

i came across this book in a dollar bin, at the time i was working in an independent record store, drinking coffee all the time, and smoking way too many cigarettes. i thought it was brilliant. this book really summed up a time and a place, a grungy apathetic precurser to the hipsters of now. and though it no longer applies, i still love this book!

I think the 'Official Slacker Handbook' is a great expression of today's
generation by Sarah Dunn.Lots of humor in it & an idea of the lifestyle
of today's generation;mostly in their twenties or even teens.I personally
recommend that EVERY library stocks at least one copy of 'The Official
Slacker Handbook'.It's one book you either love,hate or as the author,Sarah
puts it,love to hate.

Format: Paperback
Book is a lot of fun

Info on how to do lab studies, the look of a slacker, even a questionaire on your job to see how it measures up to being a slackers dream (encouraged to make calls on the job, don't necessarily have to show up, and so forth)

A very informative book. Though not everyone has the fortitude to get food stamps off the state to afford all the brightly colored breakfast cereals!
