First of all... as an Amazonian (woman who buys way too many books) I'm always suspicious of the first couple of reviews if they're really good. They could be written by friends who don't want the author sleeping on their couch anymore; or people being blackmailed by the author to say something good or the details of that lost weekend in high school will be his/her next book (videos on Youtube); or the 5-starred reviewers are related to the writer.

I am not Ben Nesvig's mother. I am a real reader. This is a very funny book. Really.

I would write more except I have to go eat a couple of ice cream sandwhiches because the 3-minute microwave pizza burned the roof of my mouth.

Five stars for laugh-out-loud-literature. I eagerly await the 3-D movie.

This books had me laughing out loud from early on. All of these things that we do in first world countries are so true!

I'm surprised at what a high quality book this is. I'm pretty skeptical of new ebooks with no ratings, but previewing it on Amazon hooked my attention. I think the author is going places. Keep it up!

This was one of the few books that was actually able to keep my attention. I am not a huge reader but this book was hilarious. It's a quick read packed with numerous rants on many of the daily "problems" I face. The rant on self-checkout lines needs to be read by every idiot at my grocery store.

The book was so fun to read and I read it in one sitting! I was like a crazy person laughing out loud to myself. With the food issues and the annoyance with hotel beds I found myself cracking up and wanting to share with friends.

Ben's sarcastic tone a-la David Sedaris was refreshing to read. I usually read more crime thrillers and this book was a welcome change to the books I usually read.

Thanks for a great read and for making me feel better about all the times I complain about my iPhone battery dying and my iced tea being too caffeinated and all the other first world problems I complain about ruining my life!

My husband downloaded a sample of this book then kept me awake laughing. After downloading the rest, he has kept me up every night this week (yes, a First World problem Ben forgot to mention...) so I had to give it a read myself. All I have to say is now I'm the one keeping him awake. Great book and a must read for anyone who is reading this!

I bought this book over a year ago and was having a difficult time in my life. My husband was living in Korea, serving in the U.S. Army, and I was waiting to hear if and when I could move over 7,000 miles away from my family and friends, to be with him. By the time I bought this book, we had been apart for almost 3 months. I had started a daily routine, read a few inspirational daily quotes, then read a funny first world problem from this book. Each day I would take out my Kindle, and read sections from a few different books. First World Problems always made me laugh. When I was finally approved to move over to Korea, I stopped my daily routine. I did read some more of the book here and there: on very long plane rides, before bed when I didn't feel like reading a novel, etc. I finally finished the book last night and wanted to share my thoughts about how funny it is!

I now live in Korea, and the things we complain about in regards to missing America are definitely first world problems. I can't drink water from the sink, there's no Target, no Chic-fil-a, I have to separate my recycling a ridiculous way, etc. This book made me laugh all the way to the very end! Great read, great buy!

Review from November 12, 2012: If you believe laughter is the best medicine then this book will cause a serious overdose. Ben Hesvig has problems, serious problems - First World problems; but he has no problem sharing them with you. Just the praise on the back of the book is worth the price of the book.

Review from February 15, 2013: Buy Ben Nesvig's new and improved First World Problems today, like right now, so you can bring on the laughter pronto. I guarantee that none of the "funny" has been extracted from the first edition. Thanks to a new eagle eye editor, the typos and other irritating mistakes have been axed placing this book right up there next to perfection.

Moderately amusing, too age and gender specific - maybe a 20 something guy would LOL, as they say.

I agree with "the Tree" as quoted on the back, "I died for this?!"

Okay if you find it for free somewhere.

I did appreciate the "riot" section.
