    Pretty Chill

    I think this book is fabulous. It is a hilarious way to view different situations and make yourself seem more knowledgeable than you really are. I enjoyed reading it and recommend it to others between the ages of 16-26.

    Also, the author from Berkeley is Amir Blumenfeld, not Adam Blumenfeld. Please change.

    Don't waste your time or money...

    This is one of the lamest 'books' I've ever read. Besides the authors' self-aggrandizing attempts at satire, there is absolutely nothing even grin-worthy between the pieces of cardboard wasted on the cover. Even if you're already an arrogant prick, the dismal pandering of these privleged, childish ego cases (Shah especially) will make you ashamed to be educated, literate, and even human. If I've ever seen a better case for castration, I already forgot it. You're better off going to a frat party and starting an argument about gay marriage if you want to see cretins pontificating.

    Amazing Book

    I really loved this book! Now my colleagues seem to think that i'm the go to girl for random knowledge. I'm usually just totally making crap up, but hey, at least they think I know what the heck I'm talking about!
