This is one of this books, that you read and then wonder, whether you are just not getting it or it's not funny...10 minutes later you realise it's NOT FUNNY..

Waste of money really... Filled up with insults like:

''Henry Miller is not really a writer but non-stop talker to whom someone has given a typewriter. - Gerald Brenan''

'' (of Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho) I think the film is a reflection of most unpleasant mind, a mean, sly, sadistic little mind. - Dwight Macdonald ''

''The difference between Los Angeles and yoghurt is that yoghurt has real culture. - Tom Taussik''

Ridiculous... It was even more embarrassing, that I have purchased it for my fiancé, and as you can imagine, it was not a good gift...:(

This book is a great bathroom read. It is quite thick but full of all the little quirky comments you just wish you could say. It's a perfect book if you're trying to find some come-backs. I particularly like that the book is well organised into chapters wich covers all subjects. I would recomend it to all my friends and family but I can't admit that I picked up the best comments from a buok full of them.

Bought this book after hearing the author on the BBC. True to form this is a hilarious collection of juicy tidbits that will suit most palates.
Can be boring in parts where you may miss the context or not know the character. On the whole pleasurable read on the hoof.

More than half this book is taken up with insults about the famous before getting down to what the title of the book and its cover is meant to guarantee. That said fairly, amusing and cheap at the price. Go on and buy it. You know you want to!

Given this item 4 stars because although it is a hell of a laugh, a considerable amount of the insults are plain rubbish. Of course, that is to be expected from a book like this and to it's credit there are a lot of hilarious insults to be found as well.

My son loves this book he uses it to provide a quick retort with his friends.
