This is one of the funniest books ever written.

I've found that opening to a random page and reading for a minute always leaves me laughing out loud.

I was a big fan of the show and this book made me like it even more (if that's possible).

Being a huge fan of the TV show, I greatly anticipated reading this book. Amazingly, the book exceeded all my expectations. It is without a doubt the funniest book I've ever read. I've found that opening to a random page and reading for a minute always leaves me laughing out loud. If you're into humor that is a little offbeat and subtle, this book is definitely for you.

Format: Paperback
This is hands down THE funniest book I have ever read. I meant to just read a little bit, but when I picked it up I couldn't put it back down. I finished the whole book in a day.
It is totally unique. They certainly have a perculiar sense of humor, but I think that anyone who is not easily offended would find it funny.
The whole thing is written as if it were completely factual a completely factual account of a trip through the U.S., which of course it isn't.
If you enjoyed the T.V. show, you have to read the book. It is unforgetable.

Format: Paperback
This book is just hysterical. I read it, the whole time trying to read the funniest parst to my friends, but eventually I just had to stop trying to do that because there are so many funny parts. There are even a few references to a couple skits from the show. Basically, if you liked the show, you will love this book.

Format: Paperback
This book is crucial to every aspect of my life. Most importantly, it determines those with whom I "hang." When I meet someone new, I let them flip through my copy for a few minutes. If they aren't on the floor laughing and begging me to borrow the book for a day within just a few moments, they are automatically excluded from receiving the benifits of my friendship. (They don't know yet, but there aren't really any.) In severe cases, I will have offenders arrested. This book is my life.

This was the funniest and best book i have ever read. I was a big fan of the show and this book made me like it even more (if that's possible). You have to read it if you like the show or just in a bad mood. It will cheer you up. I read this book over 8 times during work. BUY IT!

Fans of The State are already sold on this book...the show...and the awesome things the state members went on to produce. Therefore, all visual, auditory, and text media from this comedy sketch group should be required for all those Johnny "I'm funny at keg parties" Coolpants who brutalize open mics, improv, etc.

Alt. review for someone who was *not* a teenager/20-something in the early 1990s:
Want to impress the comedy-savvy lady or fellow you just met who *was* a teenager/20-something in the early 1990s? Make your move with some State pre-knowledge.

This is one of the funniest books ever written. I never even saw the show. I frequently quote the book. This is a great book for anyone who has ever left his home state. You can really relate to the depictions of each city and state. Even if you've never left your home town, you should buy this book. I haven't read Harry Potter yet, but I assure you that this is better reading. I would recommend buying a copy for every one of your friends, or two copies for yourself. It's that good.

I cried when The State went off the air. If only more people were as knock-you-off-your-a** funny as these blokes, America would be a better place to live.
