This book was different from what I expected! I thought it was actually going to be a text of someone embarking on the impossible journey of explaining or defining gothicism, but when I read the sentences about goths taking off like kites and sensing movement through their trousers I just knew that it was a parody :) There are a load of funny things in this book. I wouldn't recommend it if you don't like humorous takes on the subject or at all. Considering the price, I would say that it is a decent enough little read for some funny moments. I probably wouldn't have gotten it if it cost any more though. You might also want to avoid it if you are looking to do serious research. Otherwise enjoy!

As a tongue-in-cheek attempt at a handbook to either spot a Goth or be a Goth, it does hit the mark fairly well. The guide is structured by six chapters-namely, "the Dark and Mysterious world of Goths,"a guide to goth-spotting","Goth philosophy", "How to become a Goth: Ten simple steps", "The Mating Ritual" and "How to insult a Goth".

If you put numerous mistakes aside it's an enjoybale enough read that has a lot of funny moments.

I had actually bought this book as a joke, but it actually wasn't that bad. I couldn't help giggling in some parts 'I am not a goth!' - that is now my ongoing joke! Some bits are quite intresting, for example it lists the different words for goth in different languages. It's quite alright, given that its not to be taken too seriously, hence the silly jokes inside for example ' How to insult a goth'. To sum it up in one word: Silly

The book was a well received gift and a great pocket sized stocking filler. It is 'gothism' in a nutshell, albeit very much a tongue in cheek perspective. But all in all, a good little read.
