Classic book for the ages! I got this book at work and just flipping through the book had me in splits! Co-workers were like WTH?

Well worth the money - I promise you won't be able to stop laughing.

"Fail Nation" is a collection of photos originally posted on the Internet which illustrate classic gaffes of all sorts. The book is all color and nicely made, and the photos are generally well selected and captioned. There are numerous classic errors here, and generally my favorites are in the "Where to Eat" and "Where to Stay" sections. My very favorite appears on p. 74, showcasing a daily chicken special at Popeye's. I rather like Popeye's chicken, but will never be able to think of this particular dish in the same way.

You will read through the book very quickly; I've read it several times now and it never fails to entertain (if you'll pardon the pun). If you are a fan of surreal humor, satire, or simply like gawking at the colossal errors of others, this book is for you.

It made me laugh, not as much as the website, but it is portable and I don't have to worry about a WiFi signal. Plus I can share it easily. I like the set-up like a travel book, its a cute idea to make a gift-book more fun.

If you've ever been on the website failblog.org, then you don't need this book. It's a collection of some of the materials they have there. But it's a really bad collection. It's not even their funniest stuff. Save yourself $10 and just go online to their website.

It's not bad for a short bathroom read. But that's about it. The bathroom's where this book belongs.

I Enjoy the website, check it daily, however I was a little disappointed with the book. I thought the selections could have been better and the captions used in the book were not as good as the ones on the website. Its lost that lovin feeling and its gone....gone .. gone...whoa ooh whoa ooh whoa

Just a silly book...which is why I bought it...wanted the laugh. Sadly laughs we pretty hard to come by! Glad I didn't spend the money on a print book! Still..wishing I'd spent my funds on something else!

Great book!

And just a side note: The first picture of "Entrance/Not an Entrance" (a picture I have actually taken myself) was the front entrance/non-entrance of the Griffith Observatory in Hollywood... its not some random place... its a place of higher learning which makes it that much more funny.

Kind of funny, graphics were small on the kindle fire 8.9. The content is nothing you couldn't find on the Internet.
