Well, I know this book is a parody. You need to keep this in mind while reading this book. There is nothing really 'funny' about it in my opinion. It is crude, rude, and kind of degrading, to say the least. The author uses words like 'douchebag' and "MILF". I'm sure you know what that means. Is it necessary in funny/comedic books to use such language? I do not recommend this book to anyone. 

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
