Product Description

The prevaricating pros who helped students glide through seven years of college in The CollegeHumor Guide to College are back to show post-grads how to turn life into an "Easy A" by, well, faking it.

From sounding like an MBA to bribing the maître d' to acting sensitive post-sex, here is everything aspiring equivocators need to know to B.S. their way to success in the real world.

As the authors remind readers: "The important thing isn't who you are; it's who other people think you are." With this poseur's bible in hand, a generation is poised to go forth and fake it.

Honestly, this is a pretty dumb book. It is not clever or funny, isn't likely to make anyone over the age of 14 chuckle.

Bought this for my feminist sister as a joke. Returned because it's for a male audience, stupid male audience.

Simply Wonderful!

Buy this book, it's great. It's something like 60% funny BS and 40% valuable knowledge that you really can use and probably should have. I got this one and was laughing out loud and so far everybody I've let read it has loved it and most wanted to buy their own copy.

I should note, it's mostly geared to younger males. It has tips on how to dress, how to pick up girls, and how to make yourself seem more interesting. To give you an idea of the humor, one suggestion is to break items at your girlfriend's house, so you can be the white knight and repair them...just remember exactly how you disabled them. Ha ha ha!

The back of the hard cover book I have has a fancy picture of the galaxy with a big impressive title and in small print tells you to leave this side facing up because people rarely read the small print. You know what, that actually worked on one person so far. They commented about how impressive it was I was reading a book on astrophysics! This book is just plain fun.

Absolutely hilarious to me lol. I really enjoyed this book. It's oddly full of interesting information, but presented in a hilarious way. Really enjoyed this.

I thought this book would be better
by Colleen Sullivan (3 out of 5 stars)

I love college humor series online, so naturally, I thought this book would be equally as funny.

The sad truth is it isn't. It's actually kinda boring to read. I wouldn't really recommend it to anyone.

It reads more like a textbook than an actual story, so it's boring to follow.

Fun and entertaining

got this a long time ago, but it was pretty funny. It is a satirical book and is very sarcastic. I wouldn't recommended actually doing anything it says in the book. You can actually learn some interesting facts from it well.
