Although Mr. O'Roarke usually writes from a conservative perspective, this book can be read by anyone. The pictures are even funnier than the text. The only complaint I had was that it was too short.

I've read this book several times. Every time I pick it up, I end up laughing until I almost cry. As a bachelor myself, I relate to the grains of reality underneath O'Rouke's great sarcasm.

I read this book in spanish years ago when I was a bachelor... I laughed soooo much my family thought I was crazy... If I was going to recommend one book for out loud laughter this is the one. I've haven't found a book this much fun in years .... READ IT you will love it.

A complete anthropoligical study of the contemporary bachelor.
More than a bible, rather a rule book.
It manages all that is necessary to convey the truth behind 'guy living'. Lots of fun.

Not as good as "Eat The Rich" or "Parliament of Whores" or "All The Trouble in the World" or "Holidays in Hell" or "Give War A Chance"; those books are thought-provoking as well as screamingly funny. This one is just screamingly funny, but this might actually be a plus for people whose response to some of P.J.'s better works is a defensive "That's not funny!"; P.J. has a tendancy to poke fun at EVERYTHING, including the sacred cows of people who he disagrees with (and sometimes those he agrees with.)

I am petulantly withholding a 5 star rating on this little work of humor, well, because it's a little work. There. Why didn't he make it longer, dammit?
You must buy this. Anyone who's been a bachelor understands viscerally "Decorating with Alcohol".

Not only is this book hilarious, it is THE definitive guide to bachelor living.

As a 32 yr old bacelor, this book had me literally HOWLING with laughter! I let my girlfriend read it. We aren't dating anymore, LOL. As ridiculous and as obscene as some of it seems, it is startling to realize that I have actually LIVED like that!
FIVE STARS,..!!!!!!

O'Rourke has always written incisive and perceptive material, and this, his first book, points up the "always" part. Dorm rooms, bachelor pads, teenagers' rooms -- they're all the same when you come down to it, and for the same reason -- people who aren't answerable to anyone else (or don't think they aren't) live like they aren't answerable to anyone else! O'Rourke is married with a kid now, and if he lived like he's written about here, he probably did it to get out of his own former house. But then, as he puts it, "We're all bachelors now, strangers in a home we never made."
