1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible, 7 Nov. 2010
This review is from: It's Not Rocket Science: And other irritating modern cliches (Hardcover)
This book is terrible. I bought it as a present for a friend as a bit of a joke, but it was so bad I had to send it back.

It does not contain any interesting information and reads like a boring rant. All it does is list a load of clichés and accompany each one with some mundane grumbling about how annoying it is. Many of them barely contain any explanation at all. For example, "Missing you already: Has anyone ever said this seriously? It seems to be exclusively ironic." As for the humour, this depends on whether you include slightly sarcastic, unintelligent comments in your definition of "humour". This is about as funny as it gets: "Popular Area: Yes of course it's a popular area. People live there. They live there because once upon a time someone built some houses there. It is therefore a popular area!"

Overall - avoid.

I wish I had read this review before I wasted my money on this drivel.
