i would hope that if one were to purchase this book one would know and understand who amy sedaris is and expect, as i did, a fun, quirky guide to entertaining. so, if you want advice from martha stewart download a great martha stewart instructional but if you wanna learn how to not take life too seriously, then download 'i like you'...it's fun!

"I Like You: Entertaining Under the Influence" is a cheeky alternative to the every day recipe/ entertaining guides. No other guide specifically encompasses the in's and out's of entertaining for lumberjacks, funeral wakes, the elderly, when a rich uncle comes to visit, children, and the long overlooked demographic in most entertaining guides: stoners. Bless Ms. Sedaris for writing such a delightful tome for those of us who really can't be as together as Martha (you know who you are). This book is really top-notch and a great gift for the ever-diligent hostess in your life (providing she has a wacky sense of humor). I've purchased one copy of this book before and it wound up leaving with a party guest. Yes, it's so brilliant that I bought it twice. Whoever wound up with my last copy will hopefully invite me to one of their parties and I'll know who did it by the charmingly strange party decor & finger foods they'll employ from this book. Buy it, you can't have my copy.

I've loved Amy Sedaris since she was on the unique show 'Strangers With Candy.' I knew when this book came out that my dinner parties would never be the same. The great thing about this book is that she can make you laugh the entire time you are putting together an inexpensive and unique party. Amy thinks of the most interesting things to bring to the dinner table, and her recipes are fantastic. I love all of the condiments with google eyes and references to her bunny. The pictures are amazing, the book is well written, the drawings are adorable, and yet it looks very DIY because of all of the personal touches on every single page.

I LIKE YOU isn't a children's book. In fact, unless your parents say you can read it, or you're at least sixteen, I wouldn't recommend it. But if you're a mature teenager who enjoys off-beat humor mixed in with recipes, entertaining tips, and a hodgepodge of other 'homey' ideas, then this is the book for you. 'Hello, and I like you.' According to Ms. Sedaris, this is what you're saying every time you invite someone into your house. Unfortunately, I had originally thought that when I invited people into my house I was saying, 'Hello, sorry my house looks like bohemian children with outrageous hobbies live here.' But, whatever. Amy Sedaris, whom you might recognize from roles in School of Rock, Bewitched, Elf, and Strangers With Candy, has given us a slew of ideas, recipes, and helpful hints for entertaining those people we invite into our home. This over-sized tome is chock full of recipes, from the hors d'oeuvres to the main course to dessert. Mixed in, of course, are witty comments from Ms. Sedaris herself, hilarious photos, and tips on keeping that party spirit alive. If you want to give the perfect gift, for any occasion, to someone you love, show them you like them by handing them a copy of I LIKE YOU. Believe me, everyone will be happy. **Reviewed by: Jennifer Wardrip, aka 'The Genius'

I really like her sense of humor and thought this was hilarious at first glance. There is very good advice for overnight guests like: 'stay somewhere else', or 'don't bring things that need to be buried'. And the advice for dropping by unannounced is not only humourous, it is spot on. But the casual references to drug abuse are a little depressing: the herion/cocaine salt and pepper shakers cross that little line. As did calling recovering abusers boring. There's also an explicit sketch of her bent over examining her nether-regions. (However the thought of my sons sneaking the cookbook up to their bedrooms for a peek--that juxtaposition cracks me up). I gave it a 4, but I wouldn't recommend it if you have kids. Alcohol and drug abuse, no matter how hard you try, just isn't funny.
