While I also enjoyed "How to tell if your cat is plotting to kill you" more than this book, it was still an amusing compilation of comics. Like Family Guy, I preferred the zany, completely random skits rather than the gory / extremely awkward ones. But still entertaining!

Its very disturbing but is also pretty funny tho it is very mature read

This book isn't that good. I like "How to tell if your cat is plotting to kill you" better.

Not for anyone over thirty. I loved the grammar instructions, but other than that, just for the young who are not big content readers.

If you're a fan of the website, you'll love this book. A lot of the comics are from the website, but there's a few new ones too.

Quite useful guides on things. I finally found out why my hi fives, hugs, and campfires never work. Most of the content is completely unrelated but it is funny
