    1. this is a quick read on the toilet book again, if you like PJ, you ll like the humor but he must have needed scotch money, so he wrote this one in about a day and a half.


    2. Any guy who doesn t find this funny is still living at home and is not a prospect for dating, marriage and especially spawning.




    3. Cuando compr este libro en la m tica colecci n de El Papagayo no esperaba gran cosa L gico no sab a que P.J O Rourke era uno de los escritores americanos de humor m s agudos Bajo una portada chorra y un contenido idiota se esconde un contenido chorra e idiota Pero enormemente divertido Es el libro que m s veces he le do en la vida y cada vez me sigue pareciendo m s divertido.


    4. P.J O Rourke aborda con un gran sentido del humor la vida del soltero moderno bueno, desde los ochenta haciendo observaciones que estiran a la exageraci n sin que por ello rompan con un fondo con el que es f cil identificarse y est pleno de verdades Un libro ligero, sin m s, para pasar el rato con la aparici n de una ocurrencia tras otra, a medio camino entre el estilo de Seinfeld y Groucho Marx Lo malo de la edici n que le fue la traducci n el encargado de hacerlo exager en la adaptaci n hasta [...]


    5. Okay, yes, it s funny Very much so, in places But it s also one of those books that tries to be slick and hilarious by consciously making the most politicallyincorrect jokes possible, with the result that it s by turns disgusting and actively repulsive And, you know, I ll laugh at almost anything, as humor is one of the greatest forces of healing we have at our disposal But the jokes here have a real bite to them, the face saving retractions ring hollow, and I m just not interested in wading thr [...]


    6. Being a huge fan of O Rourke s other works like Eat the Rich, Holiday s in Hell and Parliment of Whores, this volume was pathetic It might be mildly amusing, but it s like PJ tried to stretch a stand up comedian s sketch into an entire book It falls ridiculously flat.


    7. good, but I was younger then and maybe the empathy has lasted Cannot say I have ever used many of the cooking tips


    8. This should be required reading for every incoming college freshman of the guy persuasion And apparently was, judging from my own college dorm back in the day, but that s a different story.





    9. Outrageously funny I ve read many of O Rourke s works in the past, but somehow I d missed this one I laughed all of the way through it and I even caught myself taking a few notes.



    10. my brother gave me this when i went away to college it s forever held a special place in my heart ever since even without that, it s still a great book.
