Totally lame. I thought it would be interesting. But mostly they just ask a bunch of interesting questions.. and manage to make the answers boring. Probably because a lot of the time the answer is like "we aren't sure" and then they make some smarmy dick jokes about it. They are like... unclever fratboys (is this redundant?). And they are adults (one is a doctor, allegedly), so it's even more unnaceptable. I'm not even giving this non-fiction shelving because, it was mostly just smarm-tastic commentary.

Becky Everhart I don't really know that it could completely be categorized as non-fiction, since it does use so many made-up scenes and (probably) made-up IM sessions. Creative non-fiction, which is much less policed, would be more up their alley, I'd say. Nice review, btw. Loved the fratboy part.
