I grew up near Chuck and am the same age, met him a few years back. He's a great guy and used to write for the High Plains Reader in the Grand Forks, Fargo North Dakota area. That being said, the books is really REALLY lacking in substance, but he knows it. Hence the title. If you are 30 years old or thereabouts... you'll get some good chuckles from a lot of what he writes, but the rest if fluffy.

A friend of mine said that reading Chuck Klosterman is like eating caramel corn. At the beginning, it tastes amazing and seems like the best idea ever, but later on, it might give you a tummyache. Fun, enjoyable, a little self-righteous, but self-consciously so, so it's disarming.

A "manifesto" has a message, and Klosterman doesn't -- the book is made up of disjointed essays and commentaries on various aspects of pop culture. Some of his points don't stand up against basic logic and rhetoric tests.

Parts of this book are very interesting and funny. Others feel like a bash fest or whine session at the physicist office. Over all not my cup of tea.

I found this book to be excessively strange and a little trippy. Not my favorite, but worth the read.
