It's about time someone put all of those little sarcastic, negative thoughts we all have from time to time in a neat little collection that we can all laught at! Real life is ALWAYS more amusing than fiction, and Jimmy and Gloria offer a pessimistic but humorous view on everything from being single to public transportation in this book that after reading, you can't help but sharing with all of your friends. I've been a Jimmy fan since his debut on SNL and recommend it to all fans!

"I Hate This Place: The Pessimist's Guide to Life" is a clever assortment of pessimism at its very best. (It is also quite invigorating...with or without six cups of coffee.) Jimmy and Gloria Fallon, two "wild and crazy" siblings, have collaborated to create a fine owner's manual that successfully explains the pessimistic mind. No need to bring an umbrella. It won't rain on your parade...it's probably been cancelled, anyway. On a lighter note...Be sure to throw out all of your pennies, because, after all, "pennies are worthless." (Unless, of course, you superglue them to the floor of a subway train--when people try to pick them up, they retain some entertainment value.)

After some minor delays, UPS and his reindeers finally showed up with this book - AND BOY WAS IT WORTH IT! These guys can see the bad side to a bowl of Jello! Anyone who knows that 'Are we having fun or what?' really means 'What?' gets 11/10 in my book! When do we see the sequel! I can't wait!

As I read this book, I was saying to myself, 'Oh my God, I can totally relate to this stuff!'. (Why did I waste my money on those STUPID find-your-inner-self-and-five-seconds-later-still-be-miserable books? WHY? ). Jimmy and Gloria have given the most perfect guide to life for those who know that life is not always what it's cracked up to be. To all the pessimists ;and those born in the '70s, educated in the '80s (and the early '90s) , and living life like it REALLY is in the late '90s, out there, YOU MUST BUY THIS BOOK!

Apparently humor runs in the Fallon family. These two reflecta genius that so rarely can be seen in people from upstate New York.This book, a clever collection of snide observations and thoughts, causes even the most diehard, bitter pessimist to laugh out loud. And that, my book-buying friends, is comedy.

I saw this book and I like Jimmy Fallon. He's funny. I don't always see him on TV, but I love his books. I got one for my husband, my brother, and my daughter for Christmas, so they could laugh too.

Jimmy Fallon is one of my favorite people ever. I was pretty disappointed by this book, and kept waiting for it to get funny. Save your money- not even worth the $7 I paid.

Sorry Jimmy, I still love you though. :)
