Overview

Lying is like 95% of what I do. But believe me: in this book, I’ll let you know exactly how to become a master spy just like me. Obviously, you won’t be as good at it as I am, but that’s because you’re you, and I’m Sterling Archer.

I know, I know, it sucks not being me.

But don’t beat yourself up about it, because I’m going to show you all the good stuff—what to wear; what to drink; how to seduce women (and, when necessary, men); how to beat up men (and, when necessary, women); how to tell the difference between call girls and hookers (hint: when they’re dead, they’re just hookers) and everything about weapons, secret devices, lying ex-girlfriends, and turtlenecks. In a word? How to Archer.

If you're a big fan of Archer, you should definitely check out this book. It's filled with all sorts of references from the show, but also keeps it fresh with new insights from Sterling's world. The writing is as if the characters really did write this. Definitely read this. You won't be disappointed.

If you like Archer, you'll LOVE this book! And if you don't, go chew on a poison dart frog. But Nook users beware... the electronic version is full of distracting punctuation errors (lots of commas that should be periods, vice versa, etc.) But the more egregious shortcoming is that all of the footnotes - quite numerous and hilariously essential to your true enjoyment of the subject matter - are relegated to the very end. Obviously it's impossible (or at least maddening) to keep flipping back and forth on an e-reader, so this is one you'll want to pick up in hard copy. Or soft copy, as the case may be...

I'm a woman so none of this would apply to me even if I ever considered using any of Archer's techniques unless I twisted it to make it a feminine style. But it's a really really funny read, especially if you read the entire book with Archer's voice in your mind. I'm glad I chose to buy it.

Fun, light reading for fans of the show. The writing captures Archer extremely well. I find myself returning to the book when I want a particularly amusing reference. If you're sensitive, be prepared to be offended occasionally, and take it in stride.

This was a pretty entertaining (and easy) read, but I'm also a big fan of the show. It is very true to the Archer character and you can hear his voice as you read the book. I don't think somebody that has never seen the show would get the humor. A must read for any Archer fan though.

I am a huge fan of this tv show so when I heard that there was a book I had to buy it. It was well worth the money! Full of the same humor as the show!

If you like Archer, this book is a MUST!!! It had to have been written by the writers because it's written in his voice perfectly.

I love me some Archer. If you love Archer you too should enjoy the book. About the first 1/3 of the book I was laughing so hard, and wanting to share just about every paragraph with friends and family. After that it started to drag on. By the end of the book, I was glad it was over.
