3.0 out of 5 stars Can the Chat! 28 Jan 2007
By Dr. Philip J. Kinsler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book has three types of entries; Pretty interesting medical ephemera; spoofs of therapy sessions the authors are allegedly doing; and Instant Messenger chat transcripts between the two authors. The medical questions get a 4 star. The humorous therapy transcripts are actually pretty funny, at least for someone in the field--I note a prior reviewer did not realize they were tongue in cheek. Then there are the IM's. These are about as funny as being in a room full of drunks when you're the only one sober. They're juvenile and funny only to the authors. Time to can 'em.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun read 13 Aug 2006
By Kelly J. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I had seen the previous book advertised but had not read it, when I saw this new book in the store I decided to give it a try. Myself, my husband and my 18 year old son have now read the book. I have to admit that there were parts(mostly bathroom humor) that my menfolk found more entertaining than I did. We ALL had several laugh outloud moments!!! I am a maternity nurse in southern California and I found the information offered in that section of the book to be both accurate and entertaining. We all felt like we were just sitting around laughing with a couple of goofball friends who happen to have a little bit of knowledge on the subject matter.(Just enough to be dangerous) The only thing I would improve is to possibly tone down the language a touch so I would feel better to let my 14 year old daughter read it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Need More Questions, less IM and inane intros 7 Aug 2006
By G. Hawver - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Normally, I read these types of books for the information and this book does offer quite a bit of interesting and useful information. However, I found myself skipping the inane IM transcripts and short story-like intros because: 1) they weren't nearly as clever as the authors apparently think they are, 2)don't add anything to the wealth of information found in the remainder of the book, and 3)are boring. I felt like I only got half a book, since I started to only read the questions and answers. I bought both this book and the previous, but may have to skip the next one if they continue to waste so much of my time and money. C'mon guys -- more Q&A, less blah blah blah!

2.0 out of 5 stars Beware Of Needless Filler 27 Jan 2007
By L. Lopinto - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I actually bought this book after browsing through it in a store. The pages I leafed through were strictly 'factoid' pages, answering some pretty interesting little questions. I'm a sucker for books akin to the 'Schott's Original Miscellany" series and so I bought this book anticipating I'd come home to a nice volume of enlightening facts.

What I found was that about half of this book [or more] consists of chat transcripts of the two authors bantering to each other, obviously convinced of their own hilariousness. There are also long introduction passages to each chapter recounting very far-fetched stories. They're funny stories, don't get me wrong, but they're so reminiscent of a sitcom in nature that I personally started doubting how 'factual' the rest of their book is. I found their very self-congratulatory style of writing to be rather grating as well. It just didn't lend itself well to investing much trust in the concreteness of their answers to the touted questions.

If you're looking for stuff similar to the Schott's series, I would not reccomend this book. If you want to read chat transcripts and throwaway humor with a few bits of interesting material thrown in between, then go for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Humor and Medical Science 4 April 2007
By Scott M. Kruse - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
As a scientist I read this for my own curiosity. I have a hard time keeping Leyner's books (also "Why Do Men Have Nipples") out of my students hands - they often grab it off the shelf, without asking, and become very focused. Students read this voraciously, want to learn more and ask a multitude of questions they never thought about before.

Leyner's books open the world of objective thinking and scientific curiosty wide and deep. Yes, there is much humor between the pages. These books provide the answers to questions we have not yet learned how to ask and help us ask more. Well done.
