Stupid book.
I'd give this book a 1.5 actually- okay it is light-hearted, there are some parts that are trying to be funny- I think I don't appreciate this book as much since I am in the medical field, so it wasn't that interesting to me. I liked his other 2 books much, much more (Why do men have nipples & Why do men fall asleep after sex).
Richard Stephenson
I thought it was okay.

I guess this branch of humor just doesn't tickle my funny bone. But I felt there were some REALLY long lull points in this one. I know for a fact I laughed out loud at least once. Not sure about the rest of the book.

I'm probably not the target audience for this one. Miss.

I picked this up from the University Bookstore thinking it would be one of those books I could read a couple of pages here and there when I was eating on campus...but it is reads like a 15 year old wrote was Horrible, no was worse, it was EL HORRIBLE!

Shelves: medicine
A light-hearted, quirky way to gain a small glimpse into the large world of information that medical practioners learn posed in an anecdotal, frat-guy style that helps to disguise the value of the bits of medical information tucked in between the humour.

I've never read anything quite like this -- self-absorbed and self-congratualtory, but unique in that there is some genuine medical advice scattered within this juvenile text. Smart and goofy, like Mel Brooks on a page.

Still a very entertaining read but not as entertaining as its two predecessors. Why Do Men Have Nipples? & Why Do Men Fall Asleep After Having Sex?. But there is an oath and a diploma when you finish the book.

This is just a compendium of stupid body jokes that most of us already know, such as "Tell everyone you need to micturate!" e.g., you have to pee. Ultimately this was a boring book.

Shelves: non-fiction, humor
This book was terrible. The authors think they are hilarious but they really aren't. The only reason I finished the book was because I had read the first two in the series.
Greg Parrott
Just not the usual book from these guys. The humor has slipped in my opinion. Almost like slap-stick. Read the first two these wrote together and stop there.
Jan 02, 2013 Joshua rated it liked it  ·  review of another edition
It was okay, but not nearly up-to-par with the previous two books by these authors. Still had some funny parts and quirky information, though.
Stacey Costas
It was fun, but nevertheless failed to be as good as the previous books of these two authors.

Not as funny as their previous books, but still somewhat humorous.

Mark Leyner is an American postmodernist author.
