Know what you are getting April 3 2006
By Adam Edwards - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I can't believe no one has given out the website address yet. If you haven't read the inspiration for the book, it's at [...] And if you have read that website, then I am surprised you haven't bought the book yet. It's just what you would expect from one of the funniest sites online, and having it in book form will change your life. Or, at least, the days when you read it because you will be hard pressed not to laugh!

The Ears Have It! Feb. 16 2006
By NStephens - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have been a fan of the site, because the hilarity of everyday life in New York is so real. The book is a great one to read while riding on the subway.

This would be the best Audio Book ever. March 30 2006
By Dr. Tracey E. Graham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Heard about it on NPR and had to have it. It has lived up to my expectations beautifully. Reading it is great, but hearing it performed with authentic NY voices would make an excellent audio book.

Hilarious New York moments, captured forever! Feb. 16 2006
By S. Carlisle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
There's nothing funnier than overhearing a snippet of conversation on the subway or the streets - it's a little window into other people's lives at times startling and shocking, but mostly hilarious. This great collection is a laugh-out-loud microcosm of the experience of living in New York. Highly recommended!

The Bi-Coastal Brooklynite Seal of Approval! Dec 27 2007
By wahzoh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book makes an excellent gift for that displaced New Yorker friend of yours who gets all misty-eyed and nostalgic at the thought of slogging through slush while chewing on a greasy slice of pizza.

I purchased this book for just one such dear friend. She really, really enjoyed her gift (which of course made me very happy) - enjoyed it so much, in fact, that she called me not once, but twice to read it aloud to me on the phone in her inimitable Brooklyn accent. She seemed to really feel that this book gave her a taste of home. And for that I will gladly give the book five stars.

The little snippets of overheard conversation are brief and easy to read, making this a potentially great bathroom book. Enjoy!
