    Awesome Book

    This is an awesome book. I went to Catholic school, and this book makes me remember those days with pleasure. I bought a couple of these books and gave them to my friends who went to school with me, and they couldn't stop laughing. It has all the saints that we had to memorize, except they're really cool. I wish we had this book when we were students!I brought my copy to a party, and everybody picked out a saint that was exactly like them. Mine is St. Marcus the Moocher. I'm going to buy a bunch of these as Christmas presents and pick a "patron saint" for each of my friends.Tony

    Very Clever!

    This little book has a very innovative title and is amusing for just about anyone to flip through. As a college student, I thought it was highly amusing...and I'm not even Catholic! I showed it to my 13 year old sister and she found it funny as well! My copy has certainly been changing hands a lot since I show it to nearly everyone I know! (Oddly enough, they can all relate to at least one of the Saints in there! :P)

    Great Book

    This book had me laughing til I cried. Very well written and witty. I originally bought it for a friend, but I liked it so much that I got a copy for myself as well.

    Amazingly Amusing Read

    I picked up this book knowing that I will get a good laugh by reading it, as the author, Ron Kanfi is the owner of NobleWorks, a well known company for its humorous and naughty greeting cards, which I love. This book is hysterically funny and bold. Provocative, sinfully sick but fantastically amusing, I enjoyed it very much.

    Interesting find.

    The information provided is very valuable and the author thinks outside the box. The power of prayer is well explained. Personally i have benefited a lot. I think you will too.

    a fun, clever book!

    I got this one after reading Kanfi's 'Life is Like a Box of Dirty Diapers'. This book is full of hilarious illustrations alongside incredibly witty writing. If you enjoy laughing by yourself, with your friends, or on the toilet, I'd highly recommend this book!

    Holy Cards

    When the cover of this book first caught my eye, I thought it would make a lovely gift for a long-time friend's birthday.
    On closer inspection, I realized that the content would be far from my initial impression.
    What looks like a reverent collection of Lives of the Saints and manifestations of Christ and His Mother Mary, is indeed a spoof of these representations.
    I read the book cover-to-cover that evening and sent it off to my unsuspecting friend. She was as amused by this book as I was and it turned out to be a perfect gift!
    I've purchased a copy for myself and am passing it around to my mostly Catholic friends. Much of the sarcasm would be lost on readers not familiar with the long history of the study of saints and the possession of Holy Cards (the trading cards of my day).
    However, I challenge any reader not to be enchanted by the creativity and irreverence of the author, no matter what your religious allegiance.
