This book is made to dip into quickly for a bus ride, bathroom break, or other moment where you've got a few minutes but don't want anything that actually requires an attention span. Quick stories and factoids, rather in the style of Cracked, Listverse, or Mental Floss, except not actually in list form. The tone is breezy but never comes up with the kind of zinger or turn of phrase that makes you read a particular line out loud because it's just that funny.

If you're irritated by references to hot chicks, half-naked women, and entirely naked women, this might not be the book for you, though. Most readers, though, of either sex, will find these frequent but casual references innocuous.

A quick fun read something that would probably be good for a quick read at break or when you have a small amout of time. Very humorious and funny. I was able to get it for free for Kindle otherwise I usually dont purchase one topic humor books but this is a funny book for its kind.

I hoped this book would be entertaining and I was not disappointed. Entertaining with a touch of education is never a bad thing. Although anyone would enjoy this book it is written with a man's point of view in mind. Enjoy and have fun with it.

I got this when it was a free download. It is reasonably entertaining but the content is nothing special at all.

It is very poor value for money. The writing style is okay and there are quite a few interesting facts but generally you can get all this stuff for free on the internet.

It also suffers a lot from not having decent photos. A reference book like this really needs photos to be useful.

It is quite amusing in places but the level of detail or insight never rises above the level of a newspaper or magazine article.

In essence this is yet another cut and paste job offered for sale on the kindle.
