4.0 out of 5 stars compilation 31 Jan. 2009
By Frank Bernarducci - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A compliation of stories about men, women and couple's sexual escapades. Humorous read, fun to discuss. Excerpts from Monica Lewinski's diary is priceless. While it is illustrated with photographs, it's more than a 'picture book.'

5.0 out of 5 stars A compilation, yet so much more 26 Mar. 2009
By Peter Brand - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Being a fan of's way of delivering pretty graphic pictures and essays in a very sincere and sensual way, I really wanted to see how this would translate to a book.
Just opening the Amazon box gave me a big surprise and proved taht this was not just a cheap copy/paste of old articles to make some cash, but actually a chronic of Nerve. What looks like a simple pink cover on the product pictures is actually a transparent neon pink plastic sleeve around the regular hardcover book. The thought of a book being rinsable made me laugh at first, now I just think it's incredibly beautiful and makes me smile every time I look at the book on it's special place in my bookshelf.
I was a bit disappointed at first that the pages weren't printed in glossy, but it's high quality paper and maybe this way it emphasises a bit more that this is a text book not an extra expensive edition of Playboy.

Reading the articles was just as fun, even though I knew a lot of them. The new context with the fotos of differet artists for each year made me read them more thorough than I usually do online. This way I discovered some sides of the articles that I hadn't noticed before. And some of the articles I didn't know I maybe wouldn't have even read online, like "Rebecca" a story by Vicky Hendricks about siamnese twin sisters having sex for the first time. But reading it was absolutely heart warming and the story is told in a very sensitive way and not weird and kind of repelling as the idea might suggest.

This story is also a good example how the Nerve writers manage to shed light on aspects of human sexuality that are hidden away by society without exploiting them for sensation.

I'm gonne close with the first quote in the book, by H. L. Mencken: "Puritanism: The haunting fear that someone, somewhere may be happy."
Thanks for continuing to make me happy Nerve. I'm looking forward to "The second ten years"!

4.0 out of 5 stars Bittersweet... 31 July 2010
By J.L - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book holds all that was wonderful about [...], which has now turned into a shadow of its former self, rarely publishing anything interesting or worthwhile and no longer edgy or relevant.

The book is beautiful inside and out.

I give it only four stars because they didn't include any of Grant Stoddard's columns.
