Overview

Previously published as I Am Better Than Your Kids.

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Alphabet of Manliness, the creator of “The Best Page in the Universe,” and overall genius, comes an outrageous, laugh-out-loud critique of children’s artwork that finally cuts those little smug know-it-alls down to size.


Previously published as I Am Better Than Your Kids.

If you think children are precious little snowflakes who are perfect in every way, think again. If you cherish every piece of art, every book report, every letter to Santa your child gives you, then this book is not for you. If your refrigerator is adorned with mementos from your kid’s childhood, then you are a sucker.

Maddox, who has been writing hilarious essays for his popular site, TheBestPageInTheUniverse.com since 1996, can spell, do math, and run faster than your kids—and, he is here to show you just how inferior your kids are. Marvel as Maddox deconstructs an eight-year-old’s crayon-drawn family portrait! Laugh uproariously as he judges sub-par Valentines, homemade “gifts,” and other areas of elementary-aged underperformance!

Why reward weakness and mediocrity with gold stars? You are in Maddox’s world now, and no child is safe from the scrutiny and critical gaze of the world’s foremost authority on children’s crappy artwork.

Editorial Reviews

The author of The Alphabet of Manliness is at it again. In his latest sarcastic rant, Maddox mocks parents who think that their bratty little offspring are just budding Picassos or Einsteins waiting to germinate. Not surprisingly, the sneering keeper of TheBestPageInTheUniverse.com will have none of it: He wants you to know that the finger-painted masterpieces you cherish are actually worthless and those third-grade book reports rightfully belong in history's dustbin. For contrarian spirits, I Am Better Than Your Kids. (P.S. This book is not just the product of one extremely bad day. According to a watcher of Maddox's website, he "endorses chauvinism, and expresses dislike towards children, senior citizens, women's rights activists, vegetarians, environmentalists, hippies, celebrities, personalities, George W. Bush, Mac user, Goths and jocks.")

Perfect conversation piece, just leave it on the table

This is a funny and an irreverent book saying things we all think but won't say out loud. This is more of a "bathroom" reader to give you a chuckle or two while doing your "business".

Maddox and everything he does is amazing. Every review less than 5 stars is wrong.

At least give me 9 pages in the middle of the book instead of just the first 9 pages with just title page and the table of contents. Morons.
