Well, Duh! is intellectually challenged. Everything is in the form of short blurbs which provide no supporting evidence and not enough information. I looked up a few things to see if they were actually true and it turns out that this writer takes some serious liberties with the truth by not including certain relevant facts or by writing the blurb in a manner that makes it sound far worse than it actually was.

Apparently supposed to be humorous are things like:

It's a cute read, I'm not sure how many of the facts are 100% true but it is certainly entertaining.

I think this book was intended as humor. Fenster crosses the line to hectoring the reader a lot. It was sort of like being trapped in a Bill O'Reilly interview. There were some funny moments and a lot of ranting about how stupid some people are and how not to be stupid.
It'd be a good book if you only had 5 minutes a day to read it. It would take forever to read, but it probably wouldn't feel like you were being beat over the head about stupidity.

I really love this – the blurbs were short and quick to read and they were really funny. I especially like the part about eccentric people. I disagree with the other reviewers. I'm actually keeping this book to read again at some point, which is rare for me – I usually swap out my books. I didn't like the second part towards the end where the author simply made jokes about things. That part was weak.

This would have been 3 stars...but I don't find the Bible to be stupid, and making fun of it is not okay! I thought this was good for a road trip and actually liked the book at the beginning. At the end he veered off course and mostly made fun of other things instead of including facts. I wouldn't read another by this author!

This is my favorite book! I love to flip to a random page and read about the stupid things people have tried. It brings out the lighter side of my day.

some humorous factoids, but many of them were innaccurate or misleading for the sake of laughs.

Some parts were really funny, but some parts were just Eh.
