    A 'laugh out loud' look at dumb computer users

    I just got my copy in the mail today, and I can't stop laughing. When I was a computer tech, I thought I heard it all - apparently not. The stories in this book are a real treasure for anyone who uses a computer or works in customer service. It's also a fun read - one of those books you can open to any page and just start laughing out-loud. Highly recommended.

    To anyone who has ever worked as a tech or just tried to help a retarded friend figure out how to play an MP3, this book will bring back some pretty painful memories, but at least this time, you get to laugh at someone else!!!

    Techmares rock

    I've read this book 2 times on the past week it hit the shelf, i once worked with th author and this guy isnt joking about anything in this book. If you're a tech phone or other wise this book is for you. If you're not a tech, get it any way so your not wrinten about on the next book! The people that actually own these system should've never passed the 3rd grade let alone drive a car or be trusted with our children. This book tells you alot of problems that we have to sit through everyday and keep a big smile and say 'you're right, sir' you didn't need that cable in there that was red, red ones are extra parts. I dont know, every tech on the phones or somewere else could write a book but not this creative and explisive. Give many of thumbs up on this book hell it should be a novel to the people in it-EH-
