I have just finished reading this book now for the second time and both times I loved every minute. I will now be leaving this book beside my toilet so guests can have a flick through as they do their thing, as it is perfect flick through, easy reading book, but i do have to admit that I did 'borrow' a few of the status updates for myself ;-) There are some awesome reviews of this book online so I suggest you do your own research on this one!

I think the very opposite of the extremely sheltered first reviewer. This book is so honest and topical at the moment and had me laughing out loud at every turn of the page... as well as a making me gasp here and there. I love this book, as it is so original and courage... and I am a huge Facebook fan which helps. This book will appeal to real people in the real world, and not so much to the PC Brigade so if you think that the world that we live in is a humour vacum, then this is probably not the book for you. I recommend this book and it would appear that I am not alone in this judging by the reviews it has been receiving in the media. Buy it, read it, love it!

It did take me a while to actually get around to reading this book as when I first purchased it I was using it for ideas for witty and funny Tweets and Facebook Updates, but that probably says more about me, as I just wasnt ready to sit down and get a feel for what the book had to say. It wasnt until I was off sick for a few days that I sat down and actually read the book through, and I was quite suprise at how intelligent the book is, as it gives a unique perspective into what social networking is about, and it isn't until I seen the updates listed like this that I actually realised. I suppose if I had researched some of the reviews on the book I would have known this before purchasing, but it was a pleasent surprise anyway! In conclusion I would recommend this book as it is very entertaining light reading, but be warned that it is in such a unique format that it may not be for everybody, but then again all Twitter and Facebook fans can at least purchase it for ideas for Tweets and Updates at the very least, and it will make for a nice Christmas Present for a few of your friends! Overall I give it 4.5 / 5

I think the very opposite of the extremely boring and sheltered first reviewer. This book is so honest and topical at the moment and had me laughing out loud at every turn of the page... as well as a few gasps here and there. I love this book, as it is so original and ballsy... and I am a huge Facebook fan which helps. This book will appeal to real people in the real world, so if you think that the world that we live in is a humour vacum, then this is probably not the book for you. I recommend this book and it would appear that I am not alone in this judging by the reviews it has been receiving: http://budurl.com/4t3g Buy it, read it, love it!

Posted 4/29/2009: Oh my gosh this book is horrible! I returned it immediately! I don't believe that anyone should THINK about putting this kind of "STATUS" on their Facebook information little alone READING this kind of GARBAGE! I had NO idea this book was so rude when I purchased it for my Mother. Thank goodness I didn't have it directly shipped to her house!!! (A "Peek Inside the Chapters" was not available when I purchased this book!). Every bad word is used, even the four letter C word which I find is the lowest of all lows against a woman. So if you LIKE this kind of book to read, then by all means, buy it, but I would NEVER put this garbage on MY Facebook page, EVER! I'm all for non-censorship but come one now! We don't need to read about this kind of garbage now do we? Why would anyone put most of this on their Facebook page IF it's true? Sad! I thought this book would be fun for my Mom to read as a new Facebook user but it's not even funny. Buy Facebook Me. It's awesome for new users.
