4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good but not every photo is classic PoWM material., September 3, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: People of Walmart: Shop and Awe (Paperback)
I enjoy People of Walmart, but just like on the site, some of the featured photos are not that funny. The book had many "classics" (like the back boobs photos, obnoxious t-shirts, scary hair, makeup and clothes, and Willy the Pimp) but some of the others were sort of meh. I assume that perhaps there were some rights issues with some of the photos (getting permission to publish) but I really don't know. And some of the stories were not that outstanding either. (The story about the Subway employee reporting on the weird sandwich a customer ordered every day was my favorite.)

I'd say that for me, perhaps 75% of the content was PoWM at its best.

The thing is, I suspect that everyone who gets this book will have a different idea of *what* 75% (or whatever percentage they designate) is classic PoWM. So because of that, I'd say that for most fans of PoWM, this book has *enough* of the good stuff to make it worth buying, but don't expect that every photo is a winner, because I don't think it is.

The book looks nice, with raised lettering on the cover and decent quality paper. (It doesn't look shoddily made or cheap.)
