Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The hilarious, famously scathing Dos & Don’ts section of Vice gets its due in the latest compendium by Alvi, McInnes and Smith (The Vice Guide to Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll). It’s the best part of a magazine identified, variously, as an "ultra-hip underground magazine" and a "hotch-potch of F-words, cocaine, music and sex with occasional rants about how ‘stupid, lazy, older people should stop being so pathetic and shortsighted’ "—and known to those who read it as being a publication full of irresistibly stupid stuff written by very smart people. The legend of the magazine’s provenance is crucial ("Ten years ago two drunks and a junkie decided to take advantage of Montreal’s many ‘make work’ programs and start a government-funded magazine") to its appeal, and the Vice creators have spawned a kind of scruffy media empire out of their moments of juvenile genius. In the Dos & Don’ts, chief fashion analyst McInnis serves up wicked gems (many unprintable) to accompany the little photos. Of a man playing soccer in a Speedo, he writes, "You little Rikki-Tikki-Tavi in blue trunks—mongoosing all over the place like Julian Lennon video"; of a child wearing a leather jacket, he writes "Dear Kids, I hate your tiny little guts. Thanks for making it worse by ‘Born To Be Wild’ing your self sic up like that poster in my Guidance Counsellor’s sic office." When he’s feeling complimentary, he says of two middle-aged Quebecoise, "Even after 40 they still rock the high heels and cleavage….while the English moms go the way of the track pant, the frogs will be wearing that garter belt all the way to the grave." You get the idea.

So most of the photo write-ups come from insular, genre-arguing, punk ex-junkies... That's a fact. Though on the whole, the photos are interesting, and the fashion reviews are humorous, especially when a visual faux pas is employed.

Sadly, many of the critiques are poop level, and the reviews of women generally amount to "hot-or-not" trash.

Nevertheless, the book goes great next to a toilet and will, no doubt, be the envy of all your teenage male friends.

Love Vice. Had so much fun with this issue, as a San Diegan, the cover is too good! Passed on to my brother and then he shared with his friends... hope I ever get it back ! If you want a trip down memory lane infused with whip smart humor, Vice (any) is for you !

Do not, I repeat DO NOT read this book on the train. I tried it and was laughing so hard everyone on the train was staring at me. This book is too funny to be brought out in public. I almost peed myself. Keep this book indoors where it belongs. It is the funniest thing I have ever read in my life.

I only bought this because my picture is one of the "don'ts" "Don'ts" is kind of a weird word when you see it spelled out, what with the apostrophe followed by ts. If I saw that on craigslist I'd assume it was a transexual named Don

In an age too often focused on the superficial and mundane, it is good to see that some people still focus on key issues for society. Buy this important book for yourself, your friends, your loved ones.

I purchased this book for my girlfriend as a birthday gift, as we both love to people watch in public. After reading the reviews, and being a long-time fan of vice already, I placed the order.

I hit a home run with this gift. This is a thick book, but an easy read as it's broken into hilariously written short segments which hold your interest as long as you allow.

I now often hear her cracking up in the other room, and no longer have to ask why - I know she's flipping through this book :)

(That's a quote from somewhere in the book) I haven't stopped laughing since I picked up this book and now I also can't stop finding Do's and Don'ts all over the streets of Chicago. I'll be giving this book out to unsuspecting friends for Xmas this year.

It was almost exactly what I expected. The reason why it was ALMOST exactly what I expected and not EXACTLY exactly what I expected is because it had MORE than what I expected. More pics. More vulgarity. Just more.
