For those who may be unfamiliar with the term, snark is a noun, meaning biting wit, or snide remarks. Snarkiness would be the quality of being snarky. Some call it sarcasm, but that sounds too mild. In any case, Lawrence Dorfman is the master of snark.
This Kindle edition propels the reader immediately into what appears to be a meaningless jumble of short jabs and unattributed snarky insults, such as these:
◆ A sharp tongue is no indication of a keen mind. ◆ Everyone is gifted. Some open the package sooner. ◆ It may be that your whole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others. ◆ You fill a much-needed gap. ◆ You have the Midas touch. Everything you touch turns to muffler. ◆ If he were any more stupid, he'd have to be watered twice a week. ◆
Bullets separate them, just as seen above, and they go on for pages. This may be unnerving and quite random to some readers, but just persevere and you'll soon get to the meat of this book.
◆ He has a mechanical mind. He just forgot to wind it up this morning. ◆ He smells the coffee, but can't find the pot. ◆ He would be out of his depth in a parking-lot puddle. ◆ He'd steal the straw from his mother's kennel. ◆ He's got that faraway look. The farther away he gets, the better he looks. ◆ In the land of the witless, the half-wit is king. ◆ It is mind over matter.Read more ›
It has many spelling errors and at some points you say "is that even a sentence?"
I got this for my brother in law who is 14 and he loved it.
If you are an adult... skip it. You are better off just surfing the web and kicking a good kick out of online articles.

The item was in great condition, as for its reading contents,
not so great.
I don't think I've ever laughed so hard in my entire 24 years of life.
I might order more of these for gifts...and highlight some insults for the recipient.

I saw this book at the store an had to get it on my kindle. Great for witty comebacks and just a nice laugh.Published on August 27, 2013 by Patrick Harrison
Like many limited subjects, this book gets pretty repetitive and stretched-out in order to make a "book". Maybe a bit more editing to remove the repetition...Published on May 10, 2013 by sparker
