The author obviously hasn't done extensive research and is sarcastic him/herself. And they quite obviously are a terrible, terrible writer with an awful grip on irony and satire. (Translation for those whom are sarcasm-impaired: It rocked.)

Sarcasm is necessary to identify humor, intelligence, compassion, and wit.

I purchased this book for a Christmas gift, but spent a lot of time reading it prior to wrapping it It is a wonderful book - lots of humor. I was laughing out loud. The gift recipient laughted even louder! The author forces the you to look at everyday things from an entirely different perspective. I want to purchase one for myself and would highly recommend it.
