Amazon.com Reviews on The Far Side:
Five Stars! - Edutainment at its finest: What a breath of fresh air ;) ! This short but sweet book will leave your cheeks hurting from continuous laughter....and you will be all the smarter for it! When you can seamlessly combine education and humor you know you have a keeper. Your friends and colleagues will be happy you shared this with them and you will be remembered with a chuckle. Such a neat little gift and source of edutainment!
Five Star! – Buy the series! This was one of the most amusing (and educational) fun books I have ever read. I have now read the whole series and they have taken a prominent place in my (guess where?) library. Thank you Dr Weiss. What's next?
Five Stars! - Never knew that being educated could be so much fun. Great read, well done!
Five Stars! - Laughter is the best medicine and this book is the best!
Five Stars! - Great fun...great read...who knew passing gas could be educational! This should be a best seller!
Five Stars! - Can't say enough...this book is not only funny, but I learned a lot too! We should make this a must read for our politicians!
Five Stars! - I wasn't sure what to expect when purchasing this book, but was pleasantly surprised to find a lighthearted and fun collection of cartoons and information. Gas has always proven funny to me, but here it was also enlightening! Between the clever single panel cartoons of Dan Reynolds and the uniquely fascinating information and trivia from Dr. Joseph Weiss, "The Fart Side" was a 'breeze' to read!
Barnes & Noble.com on The Fart Side:
Five Stars! - Highly entertaining, well done, puts the fun back in passing gas! The way humour should be.
Five Stars! - I don't think I have ever laughed so hard! Cracked me up......Should be a must read for everyone!
Five Stars! - Education, the way it should be.....informative and entertaining. I made the mistake of reading this in a public place and laughing out loud......All I had to say is that it was a book on passing wind........everyone wanted a copy.
Five Stars! - OMG...stop!! I kept laughing and passing gas at the same time! This puts The Far Side to shame....more educational and more entertaining. Hilarious and yet informative. This is an instant classic........someone will be using this book in a movie!
