< Bad visual
> yeah I think she can handle the other thing on her own.
The book includes 300 texted conversations, most of which have not previously appeared on the web site. Some of them are very funny, but my impression is that the percentage of laugh-out-loud autocorrect faux pas that are really good is lower in the book than on the web site. Or maybe it's just that there are a lot more examples to paw through on the site than in the book, so the success rate on the site seems higher. At any rate, I'd say that the book is not a necessary read. If you're a web savvy digital ager, stick with the web site. If, on the other hand, you want to buy a gift for someone who is digitally challenged, then picking up a copy of Damn You, Autocorrect! makes good sense.

(PS - I don't usually write in "textese" but it just seemed so appropriate for this review!)
I tried to pick out a few of my favorites to share here, such as:
"I broke my penis and it exploded all over my pants." (*pen)
"Please tell her I have herpes." (*her pies)
". . . stop leaving the bloody tampon!" (*bloody lamp on)
If you enjoy immature humor as much as I do, I highly recommend you purchase this book. You will definitely LOL! Literally!
This will be on my coffee table for a very long time for guests to laugh over.
Edited a month later: my girlfriend is very concerned about the uncontrolled laughter she hears in the other room when I'm re-reading this thing. It is powerfully funny.
So I bought this book for Kindle and loaded it onto iPad. It was just hilarious! I couldn't put it down. It's a light read but the situations resonate so strongly. This book is aimed where social interaction and technology meet, and the human costs of imperfect machines taking part in the conversation are so clear and funny.
I laughed so long and hard that tears ran from my eyes. When's the last time a book did that to you?

This book was perfect. I got it for a gag bathroom gift for my brother-in-law and ended up reading it all before I gave it to him. There are some great mess ups in there. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Amazon Customer
