Ok, what can I say? I'd rate this book a 4, It made me laugh my head off, and my dad's! This book is a lol joke book, filled with useful tips along the way from none other than Bart Simpson. In this book Bart teaches you how to speak different laungages, tells you what goes on in your prents mind, zesty prayers, and much, much more! Learn a lot about life with Bart Simpson, and a lot of laughs along the way!

I have such fond memories of the Simpson¿s, especially Bart. There¿s something entertaining in his absolute determination to be anti-everything. He¿s rude, disobedient, obnoxious and yet we love him.I can¿t really describe this book. It¿s a conglomeration of Bart¿s wisdom from sex to religion to cheating in school. Some of the information is based in fact but I wouldn¿t use it for a report. Despite it feeling childish, this book is not for children. The language is a little rough and there are some ideas your children just don¿t need to have come from someone else (let alone think of on their own).I thoroughly enjoyed this trip down memory lane. I felt like I was back in high school pouring over Life is Hell in the back of class with my friends. This is one you could probably read over and over because there are so many little parts to each page. I¿m glad I picked this up. I needed a little sunshine to carry me on to spring.

Nice entertaining read for a 5 hour car ride. Some truly inspired jokes as well as plenty mild ones. Basically, this book can't really decide who its audience is, and so is spotty, but has something for everyone.

Strangely entrancing and solidly entertaining. Minus one star for shoddy, sloppy artwork occasionally. Plus one star for the running gag on the secret to life. I've used these lessons many times throughout life - no joke - and always been satisfied. Thanks, Bart!

Funny, don't have to be a Simpsons fan to enjoy (but it helps), and humorous at both the juvenile and adult levels. Generally factually accurate as well.

This IS the best Simpsons book ever! And that is not an opinion. The second I opened this book I could not put it down. I almost walked into traffic walking home from the Barns and Noble. In summary this book is recomended for ANYBODY. Even if they hate the Simpsons (Although I don't Know why anybody would). :)

This book is really enjoyable.. Even though it doesn't really have anything to do with the actual show, it is still very funny to read different subjects such as babies religion etc. according to the characters of the Simpsons. I laughed when a question in the book was: Where do babies come from? Todd Flanders responded with- 'I'm not sure exactly but I think you could go to hell for asking that question.' It's a great rainy day book which any Simpsons fan would enjoy

This is a great book. It is very funny and has a lot of 'good' advice. I loved it. Whoever remotely likes the simpsons must get it. If you've read it and didn't like it, then all I have to say is EAT MY SHORTS!

Bart Simpson's Guide to Life- This book is fun to read when bored or when trying to fall asleep. I gave to my 17 year old brother on his birthday, he was glad I got it for him(he's a big fan of the simpsons). There is one funny part I liked best, it showed Bart's playground playmates and their personality. For example one was one of a attention seeking girl and her future career was an actor another one was a mr. know-it-all boy and he was predicted to be a critict. Hopefully you by this book and have a few laughs with your friends.

I haven't read this book, but from all of the viewers that read this book, I think I might go and buy it. I know that the book is good because the simpsons is the funniest tv show ever made.
