Good for a few laughs, which are occasionally in short supply in my world....

The usual selection of irresponsible idiots.

Meh. Might be ok if you read a few pages and set it down again over and over. As a book it just doesn't hang together despite the ample amounts of filler. The topic is the perfect source of interesting blog posts or online reading, but doesn't work in this format. Maybe teh first one was better, but I'd skip 'em both and check out the website instead.

I expected something better and was disappointed. This reads like Ripley's believe it or not. Yawn.
