I must disclaim that I have known Bev for almost 20 years. She is one of the most genuinely funny, smart and smartly funny people I've known. It's great to see her talents finally in widespread print.

As for the book, it's wonderful. Funny, sharp, (as noted) crass in the best possible sense of the world, and without a doubt geared towards an adult audience that likes humor that takes both the high road, the low road and the subway at the same time.

I tend to read at night, and as such when reading humor books, I tend to wake my significant other when reading particularly funny books. She can tell how funny a book is by how difficult it is for her to get to sleep. Let's just say she slept badly for two nights straight. This is a book you can fly through in no time, but it's a tear-inducing bit of work here. Now, the items themselves are pretty absurd... nightmare fuel, in some cases. That would be amusing enough, without any commentary. However, that's the magic of the book. The author commentary (on the level of Mystery Science Theater 3000's best writing often), interactions with auction people and feedback are gut-wrenchingly funny.

Also, it's not fit for kids. Seriously. This one is your book, adult folks. However, be prepared for high quality poop jokes, sexual innuendo and outright profanity. All of which are used like surgical instruments in the most craftsmanlike manner to bring you the funny.

Buy this.

First, let me say that I love reading Cary's "List of the Day" and I also really liked his other book, 1001 Things to Scare the Crap Out of You. This book isn't a random book of facts, but instead is a collection of 101 things the author(s) bought on ebay. Apparently they went for the craziest things they could find. Each item has at least one full color photo, along with the price paid, as well as the ebay seller's description. The fun starts when Cary (and Beverly) add their own thoughts to the mix, and often include "back and forth" emails between the buyers and sellers of said items. Here is my only complaint....when I purchsed the item it did not mention in the description that there were two different chapters on "adult" items, "Crap for your junk" and "Adults only crap" When I picked up my 11 year old from school, she opened the box with the book in it and started flipping through it. We both laughed at the giant false teeth and the "cowboy gray squirrel head mount" but I about drove off the road when she asked me "What's that?" and showed me a picture of a "butt plug with disco lights." Not something I wanted to explain to my 11 year old. So, not having a little heads up about those two chapters in the item description was a bummer. I still enjoyed the book, but it's certainly not something you want your kids to flip through.

*****UPDATE November 29, 2011*****
I am aware that the current description of the book mentions some of the more adult oriented "items" listed in the book, however, when I orginally wrote my review (September 27, 2011) this description was not in place. The description which names some of the items was added October 4, 2011. I am pleased that Amazon chose to change the description to give a little more insight as to what was in the book, but I stand by original review.

I bought this for my Dad but I can't stop reading it! Some of the things in it are just crazy… like a fart filter, so you don't ever have to worry about smelly farts again! Seriously, I can't make this stuff up. I was about to wrap the gift, but decided to wait so that my husband can take a peek at it was well.

Being a notorious Ebay addict who has had approximately 1,800 Ebay transactions (with perfect feedback, folks!), I snapped this up as soon as I saw it at our local Half Price Books. Shortly thereafter I was laughing until tears flowed. It wasn't so much the items - though they did give me some ideas for new categories to explore on Ebay, where the best thing is to get on to a new item area before everybody else in some two-bit lost town in Texas does. After all, you only need one shiftless rival bidder to bid up the price of something you cleverly spotted. No, it was the Messages between the authors and the sellers. They were as amusing as anything I've read in quite some time. Nice work!

I was truly amazed at what was purchased on eBay in this book. From dinosaur dung, to deeds for moon property, to taxidermy cowboy squirrels...you'll be cracking up at the insane items listed in this book! Can't wait to check out more books by Cary McNeal...these are hilarious!
