Quite a few of the answers, discussions and "editor's comments" did make me smile, and can be pretty clever in a surreal, not-to-be-taken-in-the-least-bit-seriously way. I can see how some people would really find it funny when others really wouldn't. But personally, ultimately I didn't find the book quite as funny as I thought it had promised. Then again, with a title like that, it did have a lot to live up to...
Some people may find it funny, but hey 'Last of the Summer Wine' lasted for years so there is no accounting for taste - this book made me smile less (and I despise Last Of The Summer Wine).
I would like to think that (if it is ever re-printed), the last question being "How do you feel now sucker, after parting with your hard earned cash for this dirge?". The title of the book is quite funny, hence 1 star.
PS I have an idea, I should give this book 5 stars, that is far more hilarious than anything between its pages.

I have to agree with the 'stuffshirts' I am afraid. I cannot even say it is 'puerile', it's just rubbish. I think there was something that made me laugh somewhere but not sure.
A shame, a great title and a great idea for a parody on the absolutely excellent New Scientist books but I think they had more humour in them than this does. It reminded me of 'Shite's unoriginal miscellany' the author's name was a perfect description of the contents.
Firstly I dont think i would find this half as funny if i was reading it, but the audio version did make me laugh aloud at work prompting colleagues to ask what was so funny and why i was sitting for two hours with a smile on my face!
I've noticed that some people may not have understood that this book is a spoof and completely fictional - all questions and answers are made up. This book is a parody of those ten-a-penny 'interesting q&a' books that have been all the rage in recent years and it spoofs them very well.
I would highly recommend the audio version as the voice talent is excellent and very funny. If you are a fan of Tamsin Grieg, Mark Heap or Julian Rhind-Tutt (the readers - all from Green Wing and many other brilliant TV Shows) you will know exactly what sort of comedy and colourful characters to expect.
Hope this helps! Like i said there didnt seem to be many (if any) other Audio CD reviews and i think the voice talent is worth a mention and it really makes the book a lot funnier!
