Review

‘Fact: The Simpsons is the funniest sitcom of all time. There are more gags, more characters, funnier plots, funnier sub-plots’
Loaded

‘It is likely to get very high ratings on terrestrial television; Britain is probably heading for a wave of Simpsons mania’
Independent On Sunday

‘The wittiest and most literate show on television’
Brenda Maddox, The Times

From the Back Cover

THE WORLD'S MOST POPULAR DELINQUENT REVEALS ALL IN THIS GUIDE TO THE HARD KNOCK FACTS OF LIFE, OUT NOW IN PAPERBACK

Written and illustrated by Matt Groening, the creator of the 'The Simpsons, Bart Simpson's Guide to Life' is chock full of the kind of humour that keeps Simpsons devotees hooked to the show.

Including such gems as Dr Bart's Miracle Cure, Homer's Dozen-Donut-A-Day Diet and the beauty secrets of Marge ('Never pluck protruding nose hair, death may result. Instead use a lightweight Weedwacker') and Homer ('The scent of chili dogs, onions and beer, when eaten in combination, makes women swoon').

With guest appearances by all the great 'Simpsons' characters, including Lisa, Moe, Barney, Millhouse, Krusty the Clown, Groundskeeper Willie, Mr Burns and Smithers. Like the shows themselves, 'Bart Simpson's Guide to Life' has something to please all age groups and is so crammed full of fun that you'll spot something new every time you read it.

This unique book gives you a glimpse into the mind of the most popular yellow faced boy ever. Words cannot describe how good this book is. You'll be laughing from the first page right the way through to the last page. I've now read this book 3 times and I still find it hard to put down. This book will make a great gift, and if you love The Simpsons well you just gotta have it.

This book is absolutely packed with pictures, captions, witty comments, information and, more importantly, hilarity.
I think anyone could read this book with enjoyment, not just children with a mind similar to Bart Simpson. There is so much to read in so many places that I doubt many people can honestly say they've read every single word-not because it's boring but because you can so easily miss something. On the contrary, it is very interesting and very funny. Well worth it's price and very cleverly made. I'd recommend it to anyone with a sense of humour.

a handbook might tell you how to eat or play . But this book tells you how to live ! This book will simply tell you a better way to do anything , even walking! There was a lot of rubbish in this book ; a game you can't win , 2 pages of stupid pages with no answers , why you will go to hell ... . It's not a good read if you're an adult , because all the jokes are aimed at kids . Don't try any of the advice!

"Bart Simpsons guide to life"
Bart Simpsons guide to life is a book for children aged 9-12. It gives some facts mixed in with humour and jokes e.g.:-"did you know that Turkey eats the most cereal in the world."
This book manages to display facts in funny and interesting way. It covers important subjects like school, food, health and fitness, work and money, after hours, parents... It has lots of jokes and is very funny. It is bright and full of pictures. I found this book really good and with only 186 pages it's not too heavy to read. It includes all America's favourite cartoon family and makes you laugh so hard your sides split.
The only bad things about this book are:- the price, at nearly pounds ,this book is a bit expensive for what it is. Also it is a bit long for young children .All in all though, this book is great and I would advise anyone to buy it this Christmas. Reported by Aimee .C

I love this book it is hillariouslly funny and ammusing i could sit there and read through the diffrent sections for hours on end and never get bored in my endless laughing.
I brought my copy of this book in the u.s.a and it had just come out and i have not put it down.
i am a simpsons collector with lots of rare items and this great book just topped of my great collection.
P>I would like to hear from matt groening to what he thinks of my review.
This book i could recommend to everyone although a lot of strong words used in the book so may not be suitable for young children but a great book all round but if you can't read for long a section from the book each night will do you the trick.

This book is probably one of the best books Ive ever read and I read ALOT.Its a little difficult for a non-Simpsons fan,but its great otherwise.I HIGHLY,HIGHLY congratulate the author(Matt Groening),and the artist.Wonderful.Its pure genius,funny-no hilarious,and there is ALWAYS something more to look at.Every page has its own sense of humor.I think that this book is SUPER for any kid ages 8-12 and above that its still great.It is funny,and makes fun of certain things,lbut its all humor and never seriously disses them,and is purely for fun.PKEASE GET THIS BOOK!
