San's new life is going well, but of course eventually his lies will have to catch up with him. Continue reading Show less Is it any good? Teen readers will relate to San's attitudes toward his classmates -- bullies, girls, jocks -- and his awkwardness around other kids. Waste of time to read. I read this book because I enjoy Jake and Amir videos and one of the authors is Amir Blumenfeld , the premise seemed funny, and the fake reviews on the cover implied a relatively smart kind of humor.
So hmm, how do I feel now that I've read the book? Well, on the surface this book seems written for a male in his early 20's who was in a college frat and exemplifies every negative stereotype. Yet the book is clearly not trying to take itself seriously. It uses the bro-dude stereotype to get a laugh I read this book because I enjoy Jake and Amir videos and one of the authors is Amir Blumenfeld , the premise seemed funny, and the fake reviews on the cover implied a relatively smart kind of humor.
It uses the bro-dude stereotype to get a laugh, which is evident in the over-the-top advice the book gives. Plus, throughout the book there is some actual information like how to categorize different types of wines which seems targeted towards a more intelligent reader. So it's hard to know if this book is catering to the bro-dude or making fun of him, or both.
Either way I would say pass on this one unless you are in that very narrow band of being in your early 20's, pretty shallow, and already a fan of CollegeHumor. For what it is, I say 3 stars. If you're outside the targeted demographic, 1 star. I was enjoying this book and actually learned a few things, who would have thought?
Obviously when it comes to women you should only ever be concerned about their appearance. The entire book is written for straight males and this fact shines through every chapter.
There's no "advice" at all aimed I was enjoying this book and actually learned a few things, who would have thought? There's no "advice" at all aimed towards females but if you do yourself a favor and skip the final chapter on dating it can be a funny read.

For instance, don't wear striped shirts out clubbing and do make Pimm's No. This book is goofy, somewhat irritating and it will be outdated by next spring.

Sometimes this hits too close to home. We all know someone who does these things and comes across as a pretentious jerk. That said, there were some interesting explanations about the very basics of music and alcohol.
The authors don't beat around the bush and suggest that all of these tricks are about wooing girls into bed. Sometimes it comes across as creepy, other times it's just hilarious in a "that'll never work and if it does then shame on the both of you" sort of way. All in all it's an amus Sometimes this hits too close to home. All in all it's an amusing read with some good pointers, and some bewilderingly bad ones too. Jan 12, Shannon Hedges rated it liked it. The authors suggest things like saying "I didn't know I applied for a job working for Big Brother!
Another gem concerns name-dropping famous writers who mention the beverage you're serving at your cocktail party in one of their works: Substitute Faulkner for Hemingway if you're below the Mason-Dixon line. This is such a wonderfully absurd book, great for the CollegeHumor crowd. Dec 01, Jonathan Gascho rated it it was ok.
Kind of embarrassed for reading this one. Lots of wink-wink-nudge-nudge-you-know-we're-really-kidding-here -- but it's not kidding. Occasionally useful and funny at times, but it turned into such a venting of misogynistic insecurity that I almost started to feel bad for the guy. On the upside, it made me feel pretty good about myself, and for how much things have changed since ! Jul 20, Mike rated it really liked it. Seemingly stupid "Collegehumor.
I thought this book would actually be humorous and have some kind of deeper, positive message hidden within, but it really just teaches one how to behave like a total asshole and overall definitely sucks. If you're looking for humor and substance, look elsewhere.
