Kaufman does a good job of showing how being a regular guy can be special. Following Tom, who has become invisible to his wife, the story tells his experiences with the superheroes of Toronto. Descriptions of the character's superheroes friends are also included throughout the book and it is brilliant how Kaufman can make an unexceptional behaviour a super power.
Overall a very enjoyable and fun read.

A friend who gave me this book called it "a cute little book," and while he wasn't trying to stop me from reading it, he almost did. And he was right, but in the best way he could be. This is indeed a "cute, little" book, being both short (just over 100 pages) and cute (meaning light-hearted and funny). It's a sweet urban love story that is both surprisingly clever and unexpectedly poignant. More than anything else, though, this is a wildly funny and inventive little book that you'll want to recommend to both your friends and enemies, superheroes or not.

Format: Paperback
I liked this book because author Kaufman has a knack for looking at the different qualities people have and attributing super powers to them. For example the person who needs things to always be perfect has the super power of the Perfectionist. The person who always has a chip on their shoulder has the super power of the Chip. And so on. I was amazed at his (Kaufman's) ability identify these traits in people and make them interesting.

I disliked this book because the story, in my opinion, was too cutesy. Maybe I was expecting too much from a book with the title of "All my friends are superhereos", I don't know. But I struggled to retain interest in the story. Were it not for the interesting characters, I probably would not have finished this book.

Format: Paperback
this was a good story. the protagonist, who is just a normal guy, know all of these people with 'super powers', but they're odd super powers, like he's dating the perfectionist, who makes everything perfect. there was a guy who's super power was to take tension away from people, so he was always invited to parties, and my personal favourite, the spooner, who would sneak into the houses of lonely women to spoon with them. these kinds of things. so it was more of an an everyday interpretation of a super hero, making specific human characteristics super. because the super powers were so 'common' each interaction the protagonist had with a super hero seemed like a journey within the self because we, of course, all have at least a little of every 'power' within ourselves. so in that respect its an interesting read. but the ending is cute, even if you don't get over analytical like some (>.>).

Quite short but worth the read, interesting concept and "super powers". Story is well-executed and the characters are well-developed for such a short story
