Good advice from the little brat Bart Simpson. There's tons of funny things like Love=Hate unless they really hate. How to get out of doing chores. How to get more money from your parents. lies your parents tell you "If you tell me I promise I won't get mad. It is one of the best Simpsons books I have ever read! How to make your parents go crazy "Say are we there yet every 10 seconds". Barts dream room, and even if you don't like bart simpson there's things like Lisa's dream house Homer's Beauty Secrets and Marge's Beauty Secrets. It also has how to cheat "If you get caught don't say my name". What do parents think? Don't know then read! There is even Zesty Prayers "Now I lay me down to sleep. I pray my bladder doesn't leak. If I should pee before I wake, I pray the Lord to dry my lake". There's even Nutritional Information and Ingredients on the back. So give a hoot ask your parents to buy Bart Simpson's Guide to Life. If they don't let you yell and scream intill you lose all your breath and pass out on the floor. You won't be missing anything good I'll be here reading the old people's newspaper, so go, NOW!

I read this book around the year 2000 & it was so entertaining, I read it again & again. I remember I was about 11-12 years old, alternating between silently reading this book & playing Tetris on my neon green Gameboy, every night as my bedtime routine. Now that I look back on it, it seems a little tomboy-ish (even though my room was full of pink Princess-ness & hung up multicolored holiday lights -all year round). I was one of those rare kids, who actually liked to read & did it often without it being required by school. Bart tells it like it is & that's one of the reasons I called him my husband as a kid. I think I bought it from Borders all those years ago (I miss that store, why'd they have to close them all down?) & still have it in storage somewhere. I might have to dig it out & read it again, just for nostalgia's sake. I have a special connection w/ The Simpsons, I've been watching the show ever since I could remember (we were both born in 1988, so how come Maggie is still a baby & I had to age?). I actually collect anything I can relating to this awesome family & when I'm not able to, on to the Amazon Wish List it goes (where it gets dust & cobwebs on it, haha). Anyhoo, buy this book, it's a classic. Even though it's not really going to help solve your life problems, you'll still get a lot of mileage out of it & hours of quiet fun. You will not regret it & the people you pass it down to or lend it to will definitely appreciate your purchase. It truly is fun for all ages & a temporary escape from reality into the lovely, yellow land of Springfield, & more specifically, a view into the genius, manipulative mind of Brat, I mean Bart Simpson.

Format: Paperback
This book was first published in 1993 and like with all Simpsons' merchandise and books back then changes to the show over time have left these items a bit dated. Published three years after Do the Bartman swept to the top of the charts this book represents The Simpsons' in the early 90s, when the show was more about Bart rather than Homer. Bart had a lot of catchphrases which have not continued onto modern times which are in this book for example in the first lines Bart speaks to the reader as he introduces forgery he tell us "Okay, Listen up man!" Obviously he no longer talks like this so the vocabulary of Bart is a bit dated but the Matt Groening humour isn't.

Bart teachers the reader about personal enrichment through his eyes teaching us how to cope with the different aspects of life such as School, Food, Health, Money, Work, Parents, Art, Culture, Science, Psychology to name but a few of the vast topics covered. Like the vocabulary a lot of other characters hadn't become mainstream or even created in the first few seasons when this book came out so in the school yard there are a lot of illustrations of kid characters we are unfamiliar with but these are little things in no way retract from the overall enjoyment of this book. With the book being so old too, like I did you'll probably find it for a cheap price in many a second hand book shop.

I flipped through this book at a thrift shop. It reminds me a lot of Matt Groening's comic strip Life in Hell but, obviously, with Matt's much more popular Simpson's characters. Much like the average Simpsons viewer in the early-90's I had a hard time figuring out the target audience of this humor. It would seem that the jokes and subject matter are geared more towards 10-12 year-olds (unlike the show) but it also makes references that no kid would understand such as to the G-Spot and scabies which left me scratching my head. It's also not all jokes, there's one page with a list of latin prefixes; I could envision Bart sarcastically saying "gee, thanks man" as I was reading it. Unfortunately, this list was only slightly less funny than the material I found in the rest of the book. I decided to skip it, and maybe you should too, try Life in Hell instead.
