Overview

He's back: the curse of customer service departments everywhere--Ted L. Nancy, letter writer extraordinaire whose imbecilic queries have a way of eliciting equally idiotic answers from some of the world’s biggest companies and dignitaries.
 
From the bestselling author of Letters from a Nut comes the latest collection of seemingly serious but crazed correspondence. All New Letters from a Nut includes more than 200 letters, from bizarre to outright loony requests and compliments written by Mr. Nancy to Icelandic malls, German theme parks, shoe museums, foreign presidents, commode companies, waffle cone businesses, and the Hotel Del Fino in Greece along with their equally sincere but hilarious responses.
 
With his previous books, Ted L. Nancy distinguished himself as America's favorite postal humorist. This latest compilation highlights his comic status through letters to an upscale Amsterdam hotel requesting a room for his 300 hamsters and him to put on his play HAMSTERDAM; to Vons Supermarkets complaining that their Diet Black Cherry soda is sending him paranormal messages; to Armour Meats seeking a 59-foot piece of bologna and a note to the City of Glendale, California, asking for help in starting his new comedy club, THE JOKESTRAP; and many more….
 
Throughout Ted L. Nancy demonstrates his genius for convincing people his absurd queries are dead serious, demonstrated by the responses he receives.
All New Letters From a Nut is unabashedly silly, unapologetically sophomoric, and 100% funny.
 
With a foreword by Jerry Seinfeld

I just downloaded the sample, which anyone can do for free, and they have fixed it so you can read the NOOK version. Check it out yourself. I am so happy! Now that this feature is working I can take All New Letters From A Nut with me on all my summer trips. My friends will die laughing at his funny letters and I will be the one to bring it to them on my laptop! Sweet! It's fixed. It's working! Ted Rules!

I just like Ted L. Nancy's writing. I've been a fan for a long time. He makes me smile. This new book is a hoot. If you like Ted - you'll like All New Letters From A Nut.

Let me just say first that I thought the first Letters From a Nut book was one of the funniest things I have ever read. I cracked up at every moment of it. So saying that this is the garabage left over from the original. Most of the jokes are just recycled from the original and the ones that are new are more confusing than funny. Honestly, I could have put this book down at any time. It just got kind of boring. So saying that there were some funny moments. I did like the joke with the Hamster and thought the gorilla costume part was really funny. Whoever wrote this (?) is a skilled comedian and clearly knows how to be funny. Not only that but Ted Nancy is so polite to the people he is playing a prank on that you can not help but crack a smile at him. Still I find this book to be a dissappointing sequel to a hillarious original. If your looking for occassional laughs and quite a few grimaces this book might be for you. If not you would have better fun picking up the original and reading it instead. This book just did not do it for me.

There should be a warning or at least a return offered on mistkes like this. I'm sure the book is hilarious (like the others in the series are), but who can tell since the type is far too small to even read. The exact correspondence is copied so it is impossible to resize to the point of readibility. A real disappointment!

I do have to say, I probably would have enjoyed this...if I could have read the letters on my nook. The book contains copy of the letters, in photographic form. Great for authenticity. Not so great when read on a device that can't zoom in on a page. I just have two words for BN: Epic Fail. You should have seen this coming, you're a book store!

This book is impossible to read on a nook. Too bad B&N didn't take the time or effort to let nook customers know it.

This is a quick enjoyable read. Ted writes a weird letter and then sends it to places like shoe makers, theme parks, malls, etc. He asks to have a shoe made called a Bananny which a nanny wears that looks like a banana. He shows them a little picture. They answer him and this book shows both the letter and the answer. Sometimes you just want mindless entertainment. You don't have to follow it that closely. You can pick it up a few days later and still get absorbed in it. If you like weird nonsense this book will be for you.

I got this book as a Christmas gift. To be honest I had never read any of these books before. But my sister-in-law kept raving about them. So I read "All New Letters From A Nut". I laughed my head off. And the good thing is you don't have to read the first book or any of them in any order to enjoy this one. It's all just random writings - letters & emails this man Ted Nancy writes to various places and businesses, etc. They answer him and both the letter and the replies are printed. It's really quite entertaining. Finished the whole book in a few days taking my time. Now I will give them as gifts.

Ted L. Nancy's mind is one I appreciate. He writes strange letters to real people and they answer him. In one letter he writes to the Prime Minster of Latvia praising him & his accomplishments. Then he says he belongs to a club where a member wears a hat with a feather in it. What??? Who writes this to people? I actually lived in Latvia for awhile. No one would think of doing this there. Ted asks the Prime Minister to be the President of his Walnut Club. Insane. The Prime Minster sent him a signed photo. Highly recommended.
