Not funny Jun 18, 2008
This book is not funny. There is not much else to say. It felt like a Jay Leno gag that is not going well, and yet it keeps going anyway.
I guess humor is subjective, but I cannot see how people could find this book amusing.
Don't waste your money Dec 31, 2007
I read the this site reviews before buying this book, so was expecting to find this book funny. This book is not the least bit funny--it is so not funny, it is even painful to read. The cover states that one of the authors wrote for Bob Hope. Do you know how long ago that must have been? I can't fathom how anyone could have found this book funny. Making fun of self-help books is a good premise, but the jokes are so lame--real groaners. I never found Bob Hope that funny either. This book gets zero stars.
HA-HA Oct 11, 2007
I don't think I read a single page of this book that didn't make me burst out laughing. Some of the material aims a tad low, but a lot is fairly cerebral, too. And it's high time someone did a send up of cloying self help books.
I think the book could've been a bit longer; I wanted to keep laughing. And I was disappointed they didn't satirize any of Dr. Laura's books. But, this thing was FUNNY. This is one of the best parodies around. It's "Spinal Tap funny."
Funny Sep 24, 2007
Admit it... you read all those popular so-called self-help books and put their advices, exercises, recommendations, suggestions, plans, ideas, mantras, meditations, visualizations, affirmations, prayers to work only to find that none of that silliness works, and then you turned to this book and had a NECESSARY GOOD OL' LAUGH!... I admit it.
Absolutley Awful! Sep 12, 2007
I really give this book NO stars. This was the dumbest book I have ever read. By reading the reviews of this book before I bought it-it sounded like it would be really funny. It is soooo disappointing, I couldn't finish reading it. Wish I could return it! It's going right into the charity box.
