Book Description

MUSINGS OF A MONKEY is the first ever book by Bristol-based blogger Steven Baxter. (Look at how I am pretending to be someone else, talking about me!) It combines popular and lesser-known blogposts from the Enemies of Reason, Warm Cherryade and Farewell Prozac blogs with plenty of fresh material, including a hastily-cobbled-together chapter on phonehacking, called “Hastily-Cobbled-Together Chapter on Phonehacking”, to try and desperately appear to be more up-to-date than it really is. There are funny bits and sad bits. There are bits about biscuits. There are parodies, spoofs and all kinds of jolly japes. You’ll love it. Seriously, you will. I'm not begging. I said I wouldn't beg. I told myself I wouldn't. I'm better than that, I said. But now I'm here and... I'll beg. Please buy it. Please. Honestly, I need you to buy it. Would you buy it please? Please?

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and Interesting 2 Jan. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I very much enjoyed 'Musings of a Monkey' i was giggling endlessly at the 'A-Z of internet commenting' post at the beginning. The chapters on depression were very informative. Deffo worth a read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Musings... 2 Oct. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a book of blog posts about various topics: the media, politics, depression, shopping at Ikea... As befitting blog posts, these pieces are witty, conversational, scattershot, and in places inconclusive and ephemeral. You might wonder how such a book could deserve five stars... but it assuredly does.

The key is Baxter's personality, which comes across loud and clear no matter what he's writing about. Wise but doubtful of his own wisdom, sceptical but generous to those he's sceptical towards. Likes biscuits. Worries too much about his own failings, like most decent people. Someone you'd stand a pint to. It may be a false feeling, maybe the 'real' Seven Baxter isn't here in this gloriously messy and human book; but it sure feels like he is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, recommended. 1 Sept. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Funny and well-written with a hint of ginger. Surprisingly articulate for a monkey, although I've seen that new Planet of the Apes movie so that might explain it.
