it's a joke,
This review is from: Porn for Women (Paperback)
It's a joke, folks, it's supposed to be enjoyable. It's not earthshaking or revealing, just some good looking guys doing housework, that sort of thing. If you're offended or feel it sets women back a zillion years, oh well, it sucks to be you. Just don't buy it or act highly offended if somebody passes a copy around.
I intend to buy a few copies* of this book and give them as gifts. It makes me laugh. I think of "That '70s Show" when they were showing the various characters' fantasies. The main mom, Kitty, is laying on the sofa, saying "Oh, right there, Red, oh" and the camera pulls back and you see Red, her character's husband, dusting a tall lamp. It was funny, because it was silly. SO buy it if you think you can take the joke, avoid it if you're easily offended.
*FYI I don't get a kickback from the publishers for recommending this book and I have absolutely nothing to do with the group that put it together. (That was suggested of one of the reviewers) If they wanted to give me a kickback, I'd probably accept. Or not. Depends on what the offer was.

Yes, we all measure ourselves by how high our reviews are on Amazon.com. And yes, we're all so clueless that we can't click "Search inside this book" so we can decide for ourselves if the book interests us. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to jump off a cliff because (a) my review isn't listed first and (b) everyone else is doing it.

Mistah Stevens, you just don't want to believe people can actually like a book you don't like without it being some kind of conspiracy. And it's definitely NOT kosher to like everything you read either. Did I get that right? Great!
Now go change the kitty litter.

I am just astounded at your logic. Excuse me, I meant lack of. How do you divine that "many" of the reviewers on Amazon, particularly Ms. Andersen, as you say ".... are shills of the publisher and others..."? Do little voices or sometimes scary voices tell you of these things? Maybe, there are little green people who from time to time pick you up for a Tea Party on their space ship and tell you all the clandestine information about Amazon Reviewers. Get thee to a psychiatrist for a Reality check and take your meds. You'll feel much, much better. :)

If this is "perhaps the worst book" you've ever read, 1. You must not do a lot of reading. 2. You are totally lacking in a sense of humor. or 3. You're fear of an egalitarian relationship with a woman outweighs your sense of humor. Remind me not to introduce you to my daughters.

You're right, Josh. We are all just corporate lackeys who write reviews because we're told to. And then we turn around and blindly believe everyone else's reviews even though they, too, are written by lackeys.
I think you need to loosen up just a touch.

If she rates all products 5 stars, then perhaps she only chooses to review the products she really likes.

Josh - If this is the "worst book you've ever read", I think you might be missing the point. It's sold as porn. People look at the pictures, not read the words. Unless you are the one male in the universe who actually does read Playboy for the articles?
