5-Stars: Quick and Fun with Tinge of Truth The tone of the text is obviously humorous and a bit tongue in cheek, but it is tinged with truth.
2-Stars: Not humorous I thought it would be humorous and I think that was the intent but it falls far short of what I would consider witty.

5-stars: History The Way It Should Be This is a good example of why history is fun.
– John D Colfield
3-stars: A Superficial History Lesson With Potables It may not be tremendously nutritious or flavourful, but it’s tasty enough.

5-stars: An empowering book for fathers, and enlightening for everybody else! This fascinating, clearly written book contains a wealth of information about fathers’ importance to their children—both psychological and biological.
– Dennis Meredith
3-stars: Dry at times, but incredibly informative and rather interesting It presents a lot of facts and research, which do run into each other and can become a bit repetitive. But it was very informative and interesting, with some parts being more interesting than others.

4-stars: Your kids will thank you! Question: why would somebody read a parenting guide that advocates traumatizing children? Answer: because it’s really funny!
– Delite Rancher
1-star: Makes you wince far more often than laugh The title is humorous concept but the content is not written well. Don’t judge this book by its cover.

4 stars: entertaining and worthy guide to the wonderful world of whiskey Kudos to the authors for providing a concise, entertaining and worthy guide to the wonderful world of whiskey. A must companion for anyone on either side of the bar. It was a hard fought after gift at our annual holiday exchange!

2 stars: Good info, Format stinks I bought the Kindle version and was disappointed in the way it was formatted for the kindle. Good source of information but not very accessible via kindle

5 stars: A great bar book This is a unique book. For each drink, you are treated with a delightful and humorous anecdote that will make great cocktail conversation.
– George M.Burnell
2 stars: Coctail Archaeology To start, this book isn’t bad – but it’s not useful. Basically this is like hearing long stories from your grandfather’s “glory days” as a young man.

5 stars: “Made of stardust. Created in the heart of a star” As a father-to-be, this book speaks in a language I can relate to. It reads very analytical but is also mixed with some appropriate humor. Recommended for all the men that need a realistic book about the wonders of pregnancy.

5 stars: The classic cocktail book; not for beginners The Savoy guide has for a long time been seen as the end-all be-all of cocktail books.
2 stars: Embarrassingly bad paperback print The book itself is incredible. The paperback version, however, is an embarrassingly bad scan and reprint of the hardcover, with a 1-inch margin on all pages.

5 stars: Quick read but worth the time As described, this book is more a field manual than your usual parenting book. Everything is clear and concise without any additional fluff. I really like the bullet point style of delivery along with the big boxes in each chapter that say “Do” on one side and “Don’t Do” on the other. I would recommend this book to any parent (mother or father) to be.

5 stars: Great Little Book! This is a neat little book for writing down precious moments of cute quotes that your little ones say. I would definitely recommend this book to other parents.
– Michelle King
3 stars: Awesome idea but… Just a notebook, not much.

5 stars: Ridiculously amazing book In list after list he consistently manages to be authentic and laugh out funny without being bitter or obvious. I couldn’t pick a favorite list or even my top ten, because they were all brilliant, perfect, hilarious and so relatable.
– Kindle Customer
3 stars: He is amazing, but the book is ridiculous This book, however, was a dud for me. Yeah, I laughed, sometimes out loud. But, I just don’t think 71 lists is a great format for a book.
