5.0 out of 5 stars The Very Best (and Worst) Dating Moments In One Delightfully Funny Book Oct. 23 2006
By Coe Douglas - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Everyone once in a while a book comes along that catches you completely off guard and ends up becoming a personal favorite. "Me Talk Pretty One Day" by David Sedaris was one example, "BarCode" is another. With their fingers firmly on the pulse of the modern dating scene, the authors outline the many funny and sometimes painfully funny moments we all encounter as we flail about like fish out of water trying to meet the next Mr or Mrs. Right. And while none of us may ever understand the opposite sex (or the same sex for that matter) we can at least now define our dealings with them in very amusing terms.

5.0 out of 5 stars Transcends Generations! Nov. 1 2006
By BarCode Decoder - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I've been out of the scene for a while and trust me, this book is still great fun! Everyone can relate to these hilarious terms if they've ever dated in college and beyond. And amazingly, it's already catching on! I heard the term "updating" used in the Barcode context just a few weeks ago and the ultra-trendy user admitted to sneaking lingo from the book. I'm giving a copy to all my friends for Christmas to help them remember half the things they wish they could forget!

5.0 out of 5 stars If I'd Only Known Then ... Nov. 4 2006
By Catherine McCarty - Published on
Format: Hardcover
If you ask me, Bar Code has come 20 years too late. If I'd only known back in my single days to watch out for my Tammy tendencies, I surely would have done better at Red Rover. Instead, I spent too much time running Memory Laps, Pair-a-Scoping, and naively falling for those guys with Altered Egos, who were only interested in the Pammys anyway. Fortunately, I was completely on-target about my husband's Premarital Specs, so now I'm sleeping in Fuddy Duds, no longer worried about Down Thighzing. Still, this hilarious little guide has helped me bring closure to all those haunting memories of my dating past, and I bet it will do the same for all those 40-and 50-somethings who still CAN'T BELIEVE we wore that, said that, or did that way back when. This year I'll be putting Bar Code in the Christmas stockings of all my still- or newly-single friends. It's my duty to save them from all those Federlines out there ... and from themselves.
5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious! Oct. 31 2006
By Peggy Teel - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Hilarious! The perfect book to keep out when you're having the girls over for cocktails. My friends and I have always had carguments or worn fake-up. We just didn't know what to call it. I'm definitely going to give my friend a copy, so she can dump that Federline she's dating and find someone who deserves her. A great book for single people or those of us who want to look back and laugh about our single days.
