Brilliant - better than part 1! 26 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I just posted this because I feel that, unlike what a previous reviewer said, this is actually even funnier than The Book of Heroic Failures. The original is very focused on 1978 but the sequel obviously covers more ground and a wider area, as Pile heard more anecdotes from more people. But both are highly recommended.

Good, but not as good as Stephen's 1997 effort 6 July 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
While Mr. Pile's most recent effort is very funny, it doesn't quite reach the hilarity of his 1979 gem " the Incomplete Book of Failures". Having said that, I still found it a wonderful read and one of the few books which elicit outright belly laughs. The great thing is that people, being the way they are, will no doubt provide Stephen with an endless supply of fodder for the future exploration of hilarious failures.

Hilarious! 26 Dec. 1999
By Chris Sherlock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I'm not sure I know what the "Incomplete Book of Heroic Failures" is, I bought mine as the "Book of Heroic Failures". Maybe that is what you are referring to it as - I didn't realise it had that name! Probably when it first came out...
I think that this book is as funny as the first one... in some cases funnier! It's a pity it's out of print - or maybe not, considering its subject matter (failures) <grin>
Anyway, thanks amazon.com for giving me the chance to purchase this book again!
Incidently, I wonder if Stephen Pile will ever setup the Not Terribly Good Club of Great Britain again? <ponder>
