From the Back Cover

"WOW! This is our fattest book ever!" - Jim and Tim, The Duct Tape Guys

Forget everything you may have read or heard about duct tape. Compiled from a lifetime's obsession, The Jumbo Duct Tape Book is a magnum opus of nuttiness. If you duct tape you hands to the front and back covers of this book, you'll find it almost impossible to put down!

I was looking for a book that could actually tell me about practical things you could do with Duct Tape. Unfortunately, much of this book is filled with stupid-trying-to-be-funny things. Yes, there are a few good practical ideas, but most sound like they came from bad comedy writers struggling to come up with something funny. As a result, most of the book is filled with really stupid things that are far from funny.

Here are some examples of some pages: "Muzzle your mutt" with a graphic of duct tape around a dogs nose and mouth. Ha ha? Use a wadded up piece of duct tape in place of a silver tooth filling. Ha ha. Duct tape your telephone hand set down so you won't be inclined to answer the phone during the dinner hour when a telemarketer calls? Ha ha.

My 12 year old is funnier than these guys. Now I've wasted my 8 bucks and I'm still looking to find a decent book about duct tape. Don't make the same mistake I made- save your money.

I was given the page-a-day calendar based on this foolish book as a Christmas gift. It's chock full of the same dribble mentioned in the previous reviews. Here's another fine example: "Refrigerator Repair. Jim's whole refrigerator door fell off, and he made a whole new door out of duct tape!" That's it. No further detail offered up. If it's actually true (hard to imagine) a bit more detail might of actually made the story mildly entertaining. I suppose it's meant to be a joke. The problem of course is quite obvious - it's simply not funny!

To put it quite frankly, this is a book written by idiots for idiots. If you're the type who thought those old Dorf on Golf videos staring Tim Conway were a hoot, then this might be your cup of tea. If Hee Haw and the Red Green Show strike you as high-brow entertainment, then by all means order your copy right now. And what about my calendar? After about a week of this crap I started to feel having it displayed in my office might in fact sully my reputation. It's now at home sitting upside down beside the phone for use as a tear-off note pad.

THis book has a whole bunch of stupid things you can do with duct tape like repair your torn pants. it does not have instructions on how to make cool things with Duct tape. My 8 year old son came up with making a duct tape pillow, now that is a better idea than all of the ideas in this JUMBO but worthless book.
Bought 2 other duct tape books - yes my boys are into making duct tape projects form Amazon and they were both worth buying this one however is NOT.

This book is full of really stupid and useless information. Its really more like a bad joke book about duct tape. I wasted my time and money on this book. I did not learn or read a single useful thing about duct tape from this book.

Okay, the alligator picture was funny -- because it was real. I had hoped when I purchased the book that I would find funny but real applications of duct tape. However, 99% of the book is over-the-top humor that all begins to sound the same before you get half way through.

Very disappointed with this book. It ended up being more of a joke book (not that funny). I was looking for a book of projects for my grandson. I bought him several rolls of duct tape but the book didn't have any projects--just foolish jokes. Even my 11-year old grandson was disappointed. Thanks a lot for the Christmas gift fiasco. Don't waste your money. Once you read the jokes there is no need to keep the book.

This was a great one off Christmas present. And actually a lot of good tips! I got it for my fiancee because my father in law isn't a big reader but I knew it would make him laugh. Now I have it, and I couldn't be happier.

Pretty good. It has some interesting tips for those who may not be familiar with the use of duct tape.. I'd recommend it as a household reference book - nice to have on the shelf for times of emergency . Those of us who are familiar with Duct Tape will get a good chuckle out of some of the uses.
