I saw excerpts of this in a magazine and the tears were tripping me but when I got the book I kinda discovered that those were the funnies ones in the book, it was ok but not as good as I thought it would be.

The book is pretty much as other reviewers have summed it up: extremely funny in places, less so in others and certainly worth a read if you want a quick giggle.

However, anyone looking at the 'buy all three...' suggestion above should probably be aware that one of the suggested books in that trio: "Passive Aggressive Notes: Painfully Polite and Hilariously Hostile Writings." is not, as this tacitly implies, another similar book - it's the same book, just with its American title and cover.

It may be worth buying but probably not twice!

Being a fan of the PAN blog this great little book offers more of the same amusing (and sometimes slightly terrifying) notes; it's a fun coffee table book and has had many of my friends in stitches.

For those who have shared accommodation at some point in your life then you know there has been a time when you wanted to do this but hadn't the balls so check out the jottings of those who did! Doesn't take long to get through and is hilarious in parts. Some are jottings of the intolerant OCD's and others are from those who have put up with a mother load of selfishness before exploding over the frigde white board or post-it pad armed with a Sharpie!

I bought this book hoping a little reference to passive aggressive domestic humour might quietly influence some of the visitors to my home.

I have a teenage daughter and one of her pals likes to pick his nose and wipe it on my bathroom wall each time he goes in there...

This gross act seems to have ceased so I will credit the book accordingly!

I got this as I love this genre having been bought "I Lick My Cheese" so I thought it would make a great present for a friend that has the same sense of humour.

Some of these are really laugh-out-loud while others don't quite hit the spot. However, for a bit of silliness and fun, it is always interesting to get tips on how to complain in future.
