Action-packed and stocked with laughs, Prank the Monkey follows the quest of one crusader of justice as he dishes out revenge on the world's biggest--and most deserving--targets. Superprankster John Hargrave goes after Wal-Mart, pompous celebrities, and the entire U.S. Senate in this outrageously funny book, exposing them for the chimps they really are--and shows you how to do the same.
This premiere volume features dozens of all-new pranks, more ambitious than any attempted to date, plus updated versions of the stunts that made ZUG famous.
Sir John Hargrave (see the "Royal Pain in the Ass" prank), award-winning Internet humorist, has been pranking the system for years on his comedy website, ZUG.com.

be had and I do appreciate the irreverence this author has for the large and small targets of his wit. You have to acknowledge that there are very few in this line of work and for that I congratulate him. More like a 3.5 but not as funny as I thought it would turn out to be. I can only imagine this is a serious job for it does take a lot of diligence and perseverance to keep at, it but mostly it takes the kind of playful nature this author has in abundance. Some moments in the book much better than others but overall I do agree with need more of Sir John Hargrave's Prank the Monkey: The ZUG Book of Pranks kind of books, because after all if you can not enjoy a good laugh at messing around with the IRS, WalMart, etc., then we would all walk around being much to serious to be fun at all. Well definitely visit his website for who knows what he might write or say in the near future. Do not regret the purchase and the book itself was nicely presented. Worth the money and perhaps I am being too harsh with my rating for like I mentioned above, these kind of individuals are rare and few and we need all we can get! Come to think of it, for that alone, 4 Stars!
PS: I do not know what the problem is with Amazon but I certainly did not create the gap between.."There are some laughs to be had.." and the big space after.
If you're looking for thrills, look no further than this book, also makes a great level for short legs on coffee tables - show your guests you have got class!
The victims of these pranks are all "the man" - he never picks on little guys, so the comedy here isn't that mean-spirited in spite of being pranks. A very funny book.

Many a half-hour was spent during my early teens perusing pranks posted to the Zug website. The website was what inspired me to be interested in computers as a youngster, which served to alienate me from high school cliques, but eventually lead to my current job at a major Fortune 500 company... Eventually I made enough money to buy this book.
Now, with a Kindle in my bag, I can re-visit those days, and have a few laughs along the way. Thank you for writing this book, Sir Hargrave. It's been a blast.
