SKIP THIS ONE

There is no story here, just an UNentertaining list being read off. Technically, one isn't supposed to review something if one has not completely listened to it. However I couldn't stand anymore than half way through chapter two. It DEFINITELY wasn't for me.

Would not recommend it

This book was tough to get through. At almost 4 hours I just mostly wish I could have my time back. I almost quit early but wanted to be able to give a honest feedback on the whole book. So I went ahead and listened to the whole thing. The first half of the book was just so tedious and hard to get through. I kept thinking where is the actual handbook? Where is the actual guide? The end admittedly got better at answering these questions.

Hilarious great narrate

This is a fun and wild ride from beginning to end. The narrator brings this to life and makes me laugh even when I know it's silly

It is written like a guide book

It is written like a guide book. Yes it is supposed to be funny but I don’t think it is pulled off very well. I could not get through it all. If you are looking for an entertaining story this is not the book for you. If you want some bad puns, and cheep jokes with no continuity to kill time on your drive home then this is what you need.
