    BARELY OKAY

    Some bits are funny.
    Some are definitely not.
    Some parts are not fully developed.
    Others are simply rantings.
    I guess, this book is only for the authors' fans.

    Fun book, some problems though

    The book has very enjoyable readings in it, but there is ALOT left unsaid. For example, Bill/ Hilary Clinton. For these two people, there is only about 5 pages telling why they are schmucks, when there should really be about 20+ pages. Jackie I must say, does hit big issues REALLY hard, like immagration problems 'my favorite reading'. Overall, it is good reading, and it does make you that much smarter and more aware of whats going on in america. The book would have been perfect if it was just alittle longer. Pick it up anways if your looking for something to read in your spare time. You could finish it within 2-3 days.

    Oh Yes!

    Mason and Felder have written a true gem. The book reads easy but hits hard. So funny yet so sad because it's true. If you need an 'all-in-one' reference of schmuck-ness...this is the book for you. If all your life, you have to tell other schmucks why they are schmucks...this is the book for you. If you are a schmuck... THEN THIS IS DEFINITELY THE BOOK FOR YOU!!!
