OK, these guys took a 30 second title and turned it into 14:30 minutes of fame. The first 50 pages are funny, but 226 pages of pirattitude wear thin.

Still its good fun. I supposed I'm just a little jealous it wasn't my idea.

This was an entertaining enough read but I didn't find it hilarious at all, as previous readers have said. The lack of structure was also quite annoying. Still, I find the whole idea of "Pirattitude" and "Talk alike a pirate day" absolutely brilliant:)

Completely ridiculous. The best part is absolutely the pickup lines for pirates. Avast, ye maties! Or something.

I can’t say this book taught me to be a pirate. Therefore, I can only assume that I ALREADY WAS A PIRATE! ARRRRRR!
