From the Author

It all began with a first date...and not a particularly good date, either. Apparently, things between this guy and his roommate had gotten so bad that they now communicated almost exclusively via Post-it note. Ah, yes, I said, I know those notes well--my current apartment (where I lived with three other flatmates) had seen its share, most of them about the presence of unwashed dishes in the sink. They were usually signed with love; they were never addressed directly. I should start collecting them, I joked--put them on the Internet or something. Now that would be passive-aggressive.

Later that night--after it became clear that our relationship wasn't going to progress beyond standard small talk--I decided to do just that. And unlike my apartment's approach to dish-washing, the response to passiveaggressivenotes.com was enthusiastic, immediate, and overwhelming. Within weeks of the site's launch, thousands of notes poured in from shared bathrooms, kitchens, cubicles, and parking lots. (Wrote one reader: "Instead of a single note, can I submit an entire person? Like my mother?") This book represents the funniest and most outrageous of those submissions.

--Kerry Miller

Format: Paperback
Money for Old Rope, 4 Dec 2008
By A. Davies "Hengyang Hoon" - See all my reviews

Reviews promised I'd 'laugh out loud' at the notes in this book. I didn't. A small amount of the content is mildly amusing at best, and there is plenty of bad language too. That in itself wouldn't have stopped me buying it, but it's worth mentioning in case you were thinking of purchasing this book for a sensitive soul.

I bought it as a gift for a friend and will be sending it straight to a charity shop.

This book is proof that some people will buy anything ! And it goes straight into the "seemed like a good idea at the time " category.

A review on the cover of this drivel claims it to be deliriously funny, well I think that is about as far from the truth as possible. Make no mistake this book is an abomination and possibly the worst book I've ever read, and I shall put my hands up and say " Yes I got caught ". So good people of the world let my mistake be your lesson. If you want to waste an hour of your life then pick your nose or scratch your backside, there will be much more joy to be had.

Full of collegestyle notes, which is cool if that's what you think is funny, but a little variation would make this potentially good book even better.

5.0 out of 5 stars A quick way to improve your mood 7 Nov. 2008
By BALK - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I read Passive Aggressive Notes on the train home after a long day and went from tired and stressed out to laughing so hard that I shed a tear or two. It's a collection of real notes and photos of the outrageous things people can't find a way to say directly to their roommates and coworkers. Anyone who works in an office, shares an apartment, or dislikes confrontation will so love that this book exists.

5.0 out of 5 stars The notes in this book are hilarious! 17 Nov. 2008
By Jess - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I'm a big fan of the passive-aggressive notes website, and I'm excited to now share these hilarious notes with friends away from the computer, too! As someone who has lived with lots of different roommates and works in an office that witnesses its fair share of passive-aggressive notes, I can definitely relate to a number of the notes in this book. I also bought a copy for my coworker because I knew she'd appreciate it given all of the notes we've seen around our office.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny, funny stuff 5 Nov. 2008
By CP - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I always LOL at the PAN site, so I was thrilled to check out notes that didn't make it to the web. This book didn't disappoint. Somehow, the new stuff in the book is even more hilarious than what I've seen on the site. I'm just in awe of all the crazy people out there that write these notes! I've already passed the book to one of my co-workers who shares my distaste for people who'd rather write a note than make a verbal request. This is the perfect gift for your roommate or cube-mate (but read it yourself, first!).

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious--a great gift idea! 5 Nov. 2008
By Heartbreaker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It's the beginning of November and I already have my office Secret Santa gift taken care of--might be perfect for a few former roommates as well!!!
This is a great collection of notes ranging from the creative to the ridiculous that will have you laughing with each turn of the page(I personally love the flow-chart for office coffee mug cleaning and the pad-locked microwave). I would strongly recommend this for anyone with a sense of humor, or as a gift for anyone you think might have one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightfully Entertaining 5 Nov. 2008
By Sara - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have been a fan of passiveaggressivenotes.com since it started and its nice to have a print version! Having lived with some passive aggressive note-writers in my own life, I certainly can appreciate this collection. I think its a fabulous gift idea because its witty and fun. It is good for the people in your life with a great sense of humor and even better for those who need to do a little self reflection about their own passive-aggressive nature. This book is a must-have for any coffee table!!!
