Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

The sequel to 2005's surprise bestseller Why Do Mean Have Nipples?, the latest from writer-physician duo Leyner and Goldberg is immensely readable and educational, but it's also crude and predictable. Like the first volume, this book is set up in a Q&A format, pursuing wisdom both odd ("Do animals commit suicide?") and impolite ("Why do your eyes water when you poop?"). Unfortunately, the hit-or-miss formula is heavier on the misses this time around; many of the questions read like leftovers or magazine filler ("Can you get herpes from a hot tub?" "Why can we still not cure the common cold?" "Why do your ears pop on an airplane?"), while others serve only to debunk urban legends ("Do copper bracelets help with rheumatism?" "Is it true that you cannot die in a dream?"). The strange, quasi-fictitious chapter introductions return, as do transcripts of instant-message exchanges between Leyner and Goldberg, providing a break from the call-and-response format and serving to broaden the lovable doofus personalities of the writers; they also serve to erode the credibility of the authors, whose writing style-rife with bathroom humor and always searching for a punch line-may put off some readers. Though not for everyone, this should make an ideal gift book for fans of the first volume, or any other wiseacres on your list.

I don't have time to give a review that it at least 20 words long. What's wrong with just giving a star rating?

Can the Chat! Jan. 27 2007
By Dr. Philip J. Kinsler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book has three types of entries; Pretty interesting medical ephemera; spoofs of therapy sessions the authors are allegedly doing; and Instant Messenger chat transcripts between the two authors. The medical questions get a 4 star. The humorous therapy transcripts are actually pretty funny, at least for someone in the field--I note a prior reviewer did not realize they were tongue in cheek. Then there are the IM's. These are about as funny as being in a room full of drunks when you're the only one sober. They're juvenile and funny only to the authors. Time to can 'em.

A fun read Aug. 13 2006
By Kelly J. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I had seen the previous book advertised but had not read it, when I saw this new book in the store I decided to give it a try. Myself, my husband and my 18 year old son have now read the book. I have to admit that there were parts(mostly bathroom humor) that my menfolk found more entertaining than I did. We ALL had several laugh outloud moments!!! I am a maternity nurse in southern California and I found the information offered in that section of the book to be both accurate and entertaining. We all felt like we were just sitting around laughing with a couple of goofball friends who happen to have a little bit of knowledge on the subject matter.(Just enough to be dangerous) The only thing I would improve is to possibly tone down the language a touch so I would feel better to let my 14 year old daughter read it.

Need More Questions, less IM and inane intros Aug. 7 2006
By G. Hawver - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Normally, I read these types of books for the information and this book does offer quite a bit of interesting and useful information. However, I found myself skipping the inane IM transcripts and short story-like intros because: 1) they weren't nearly as clever as the authors apparently think they are, 2)don't add anything to the wealth of information found in the remainder of the book, and 3)are boring. I felt like I only got half a book, since I started to only read the questions and answers. I bought both this book and the previous, but may have to skip the next one if they continue to waste so much of my time and money. C'mon guys -- more Q&A, less blah blah blah!

Beware Of Needless Filler Jan. 27 2007
By L. Lopinto - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I actually bought this book after browsing through it in a store. The pages I leafed through were strictly 'factoid' pages, answering some pretty interesting little questions. I'm a sucker for books akin to the 'Schott's Original Miscellany" series and so I bought this book anticipating I'd come home to a nice volume of enlightening facts.

What I found was that about half of this book [or more] consists of chat transcripts of the two authors bantering to each other, obviously convinced of their own hilariousness. There are also long introduction passages to each chapter recounting very far-fetched stories. They're funny stories, don't get me wrong, but they're so reminiscent of a sitcom in nature that I personally started doubting how 'factual' the rest of their book is. I found their very self-congratulatory style of writing to be rather grating as well. It just didn't lend itself well to investing much trust in the concreteness of their answers to the touted questions.

If you're looking for stuff similar to the Schott's series, I would not reccomend this book. If you want to read chat transcripts and throwaway humor with a few bits of interesting material thrown in between, then go for it.

Good idea, not so good turnout. Aug. 25 2007
By Thomas Bentley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Some of the questions are rediculous, for example: If I swallow a watermelon seed, will a watermelon grow in my stomach?

I hate to believe that enough people were seriously that concerned about something so rediculous that they had to print it in the book.

As for half of the other questions, you got roundabout answers that weren't really answered, but fluffed to take up room.

Not worth the buy. My suggestion is to go to your boostore, find it, flip through the questions and read the answers you are honestly curious about and save your money.
