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.

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 "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.

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

This book of essays was pretty funny - the Zack Morris chapter was particularly good fun. And I did enjoy the hypothetical questions, but the book just wasn't up there with my favorites - probably because there were too many references and sections on things that I don't care for, such as The Real World.

As someone who grew up in the late 80's/early 90's, this book had me laughing out loud. Although I do not agree with the authors sometimes outrageous claims about society, He sure knows how to make a point using funny and obscure references. Such as the entire chapter on 'Saved by the Bell'. That in itself is worth reading the book.

I am not typically a quitter...I usually make it through a book no matter what. But this one was an exception. It was off to a great start, but crashed and burned so quickly.

This book is funny, and sometimes thought-provoking. It's not meant to be a call to arms or anything, it's humor. This is the kind of book that you'll reference to in a conversation with your friends.

I think this is the best book I have read by this author. I have not liked his other books as much as this book.

With a witty and sarcastic voice, Chuck Klosterman reviews today's pop-culture society in essays and humerous interludes.

Interesting if eclectic collection of essays on pop culture. Klosterman's viewpoint is sometimes insightful, sometimes annoying, sometimes makes you think, but should never be mistaken for something profound.

Funny, funny book. Some parts more interesting and quotable than others, but worth the read.

I read this book after hearing many rave reviews, and was disappointed. It was interesting, but I found many parts of this book to be trite, and at times downright irritating.

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.
