My name is Seau Bia, and i think that this is by far the greatest poetry book of all time and that the author will one day be recognized as the undisputed greatest writer of all time. I would also like to add that this book is good and makes me laugh.

I don't really believe that "a night without armor II: the revenge" is a parody of Jewel's book. Yes, the cover was parodied, and Beau used all of Jewel's titles as titles for his own poems. But from there, any similarity between what Beau writes and what Jewel wrote ends. He claims to have written this book in four hours, and having known Beau in high school and knowing the way he does things, it's probably true. But the quickness in the writing and the total opposite-of-Jewel's-writing approach he takes should not be taken for a straight parody, as, say, "Weird Al" Yankovic's "Eat It" would be. Beau is original and fresh, and in a world of driveling, whining poets (I did not mention Jewel here out of respect for her fans), I think maybe we need a breath of fresh Oklahoma air.

I have the book by Jewel "A Night Without Armor" and I love it. And I love Beau Sia's work too so...when I saw this existed I had to get it. It's great. Funny, and unexpectedly deep, which is what I expected. I love reading the two books together.

This is the funniest book I have ever read. You absolutely don't need to have read Jewel's poetry to appreciate Beau's genius. I love Jewel's music, this book is nothing against her. If anything it's more affectionate satire of Charles Bukowski's poetry. The point is: buy this book, buy it twice. It made me want to be a poet, a very offensive poet, but a poet none the less. To all those who were offended by some of his poems, I understand how you might be, but come on, sometimes we just need to laugh at things that we're not supposed to admit are funny. You'll feel better once you do.

A Night Without Armor II was a clever idea, but it gets boring quickly. The poems aren't interesting or funny enough to keep the book going. Judging by some of Beau's other work, he's an excellent poet. I wish he would put out a book of his more engaging efforts.

This book is hysterical. I have it on an end table in my living room, along side Jewel's A Night Without Armor. You should read them together for the full effect. Sia has everything down--the picture on the back cover, the titles to the poems, his preface… it's brilliant.

If you happen to love Jewel's poetry, you may find this book upsetting...

Or?

… ENLIGHTENING.

To be clear, Jewel is not a good writer. However, this book could be the best thing that ever happened to Jewel's book; it probably sells more accompanying this book than it does on it's own!

Also: This is a great gift idea for those people who you don't know what to give for Christmas and who you only exchange little gifts with--your brother, the colleague at the office with a sense of humor, your roommate, etc. Best to package it with Jewel's book too, for the full effect.

I read some of the poems. It is so funny. I read it at the Strand. If I ever come up with $10, this will be the first book I'll buy. Jewel fans will really appreciate it, but anyone will appreciate the humor. While super funny, it's still poetry. It's the best modern book of poetry I've ever read. Who says poetry can't be funny? Even unintentionally, Jewel's is.

You don't have to read Jewel's book to appreciate this one. Every poem by Sia is a guaranteed ovation at any poetry reading. To the teenager who was offended by this book, use your sense of humor (I know you have one if you can pick WebTV as your ISP).
