Overview

Maddox is the New York Times bestselling author of The Alphabet of Manliness, the creator of “The Best Page in the Universe,” and a genius.

Maddox can spell, do math, and run faster than your kids. And he can drive.

Adults and children alike would do well to read this book over and over again to learn from Maddox’s sage-like wisdom. Every keystroke Maddox types is brilliant. The world is better off with him in it. Maddox has selflessly shared some of his own art, and we must thank him for it. May his fertility continue to be dangerously potent, so as to impregnate as many babes as possible, and not one fewer.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

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.")

    Just Okay

    This book is somewhat funny but it gets old fast. Also, too much cursing, wish I had known that before purchasing. But if you are a fan of Maddox, this will be right up your alley!

    Greatest Book Ever

    Can cheer you up on any day and make you burst out laughing. Brought it into the office for the cube-mates and they loved it, even if they had kids.

    Highly Recommended for all men; Recommended for women but may cause testicular growth.

    From award winning author Maddox (a.k.a. George Ouzounian)comes a second book of epicness that will literally make every man and woman's testicles grow in it's presence. If you do not read this book you clearly are castrated or Gay... but if you read it and you were Gay you won't be by the end.
