Editorial Reviews

Review

“Comedians have a reputation for being dark, bitter and angry. And that’s exactly why their advice . . . is so entertaining to read. . . . Good advice? No. Fun reading material? Yes.” —The Observer’s Very Short List
 
“An apt hipster bathroom book.” —Details 
 
“Funny-funny.”—The Onion’s A.V. Club
 
“For a swift, re-motivating kick to the rear, I’ve never read anything like the gems dished out [in] You’re a Horrible Person, But I Like You.” —Caitlin Donohue, San Francisco Bay Guardian
 
“A smart, fun addition to any literary enthusiast’s artfully cluttered bedside table.” —Marie Claire
 
“Dark, offensive and insulting. And really, really funny. By the end of David Cross’s introduction, you’ll be ROFL. And yes, that inane Internet lingo is righteously ridiculed in here.” —All Headline News

The magazine includes essays on these topics, as well as lengthy interviews with philosophers, politicians, poets, and ninjas. We offer our readers an eclectic range of articles and interview subjects to underscore our belief that books are an interactive and vital medium.

I'm so glad I got this from the library, because it's just not funny, despite it's having some of the funniest people alive on its list of contributors. As other reviewers have noted, spend one minute reading random entries and you'll see just how bad it is.

I have a lot of respect for many of the people in this book and was surprised at how seldom I found it to be more than only slightly humorous. Maybe the set-up is flawed as someone else suggests, but whatever, I would highly recommend that you pick this up in a book store and read a few random pages before purchasing. Of course, at only $10 I don't feel too bad but still, I expected much more from it.

I picked this one up from the library because I knew a lot of the authors, and they are all very funny people. It had promise to be a very hilarious read. This book had a few laugh out loud moments that I was sharing with my husband, but a lot of it just fell kinda flat. It was a quick read. I wasn't expecting it to be life-altering or anything, definitely knew it wasn't going to be true advice, but I did hope it would be a bit funnier than it was.

If you absolutely HAVE to read this book, go to a library. I laughed maybe 3 times, and 2 were during Harold Ramis' part. I forced myself to finish it because I hate leaving books unread and I thought it might get funnier, but it's really not. Unfortunately I bought "You're a Horrible Person, But I Like You" the day it came out so I didn't read any reviews, but I hope my review will save some people from wasted time/effort/money. So disappointed!

What a letdown. So many funny/talented people - on screen, yet via the written word? Nothing. I smiled faintly here and there. And one outward laugh - to a Paul F Tomkin's submission of all people. OTher than that nothing. Should have just given up after a weak weak David Cross introduction.

terrible. glad i borrowed it instead of buying. it's a series of made-up questions on advice column style but after paging through several dozens of them including the one highlighted on the jacket about coming out of the closet to someone's parents... none of the questions or answers by professional comic were particularly funny. i've seen funnier product reviews on Amazon submitted by regular people.

Although some of the comedians giving advice are funny, this book is not. Didn't expect too much from it, but even with low expectations I was let down. If this book was on the 20 books for $2 list, it would have maybe been worth it, but at $11?, certainly not.

loved reading the chapters by my favorite comedians. I also discovered some new comedians. if you enjoy comedy books this is a must. light read too because its all advice column responses. most of them give horrible or indifferent advice but always VERY funny.
