However you need to be someone who is cynical and has a good sense of humor. Not someone who ever says "oh that's mean" or "oh stop complaining". It's literally like one of the few humor books I have ever laughed out loud at. Ended up buying 5 copies for friends and they all love it.(less)

If there’s one thing every person on the planet has in common, it’s that we’ve all had to deal with an asshole at some point. When I saw this little beauty available on the clearance shelves at my local Half Price Books for a measly buck I snatched it right up. I mean I work for attorneys for Jeebus’ sake – I figured I could probably use at least 100 out of the 101 tear-out letters confronting a-holes about their a-holery. Unfortunate

This book is just hilarious. Too bad I can't send these letters to anyone or else I'd probably receive a restraining order.

Dear Assholes Who Wrote This Book,

I'm sure that you were the very paragons of wit in your sophomore year of high school, but sadly it seems your sense humor failed to develop past that stage. Just like many an over-praised 15-year-old, you've clung to those memories of making classmates laugh while the rest of the kids grew up and mastered higher levels of cleverness and repartee. Or at least a more advanced vocabulary.

To be sure, you've occasionally lucked into a good turn of phrase or witty an

This was just great. I bought this as a gift for a friend, and I'm that asshole who reads the books before gifting them.

I have to admit, I've left a few scathing and borderline psychotic notes on cars of assholes who park so close to mine that I have to crawl through from the passenger side. This book would have come in handy. I didn't realize how many people drove me crazy until I found myself agreeing with each of the 101 scenarios.

This book was such fun! I loved it! "Hand written" tear-out notes to all the A-holes that frustrate us on a daily basis. I laughed out loud at nearly all of them and the others gave me big smiles - just a few of those to whom the letters of frustration are written: Dear Asshole Backseat Driver, Dear Asshole Who Stole My Parking Space, Dear Asshole Joined at the Hip Couple, Dear Asshole Graffiti "Artist", Dear Asshole Who Brought Seafood to Work, Dear Asshole at the Movie Theater - and the list ...more

This book makes me laugh, over and over! I happened upon it one day in B&N and I'm glad I picked it up. I swear I could've written half of these letters! The book covers almost every type of moron out there. You will find a few you want to give to your coworkers, a few you want to give to your friends and a few you want to hand out to strangers. Uses for this book: Keep at work and reference for a good laugh on a slow Friday afternoon, Give to a friend you know appreciates this type of ...more

Any book that gives me a good hour of looking like a freak because I'm sitting in a corner cackling and hooting is worth 5 stars to me. I almost peed my pants. BTW, I paid $10 for it, so I'm going to lend it to everyone I know so i can pretend I got my money's worth.

I love this book. It's important to realize what it is, I think, and that's pretty much that it's a bathroom book. It's not something I'd sit and read straight through, but it's perfect for short bursts of reading. Each letter is about 3 paragraphs, and all are funny. Guaranteed that you know at least one of the assholes portrayed in this book ;-)

Funny book, I feel like they were speaking for me with most of these letters. I ended up buying multiple copies, one to rip out letters and leave them around work, and one just to keep to read.

Truly witty and fun! Buy it for laughs, buy it again to hand it out.

This is the funniest book that I have ever read! Hands down, one of the smartest, funniest and altogether supremely well written books in my humor collection. I laughed my ass off from start to finish. The best thing about this book was that every single letter in it could have very well been written by me at some point in my life. OUTSTANDING!!!
Mar 22, 2015 Asma rated it did not like it
Neither funny nor passionate. In most of the letters, I found myself thinking of the letter-writer as the real asshole.

Side note: This book reminded me of how much I hate whining, childish, self-centered brats.
Not to self: Don't be one of them.

Crud....I'm kicking myself for not thinking of this first.
Totally hilarious idea! Rip out letters to all the a- holes you might cross paths with. I laughed at some but found myself feeling like they missed the mark on others. The book was a great idea though.

This book was given to me as a gift.

There are some letters that I can definitely put to use.

It really does cover a wide spectrum of Assholes that we all encounter in our every day lives.
