    This was pretty funny. Another good coffee table book to thumb through and have on hand to read in a group. And it's actually helpful, despite being incredibly funny! This was pretty funny.

    I thought this would be a lot of humour and sarcasm, and thus, a lot of fun. But the writers ended up being serious about their advice *frowns* So yeah, thank you, but no thank you!

    I picked this up out of schadenfreude, really. I'm not fond of the Worst-Case series and this one just seemed like a receipe for disaster. Surprisingly it didn't suck? It wasn't great; there was at least one seriously transphobic entry (hint: your date is whatever gender they say they are and you need to suck it the fuck up), and the pick-up lines and excuses are really... blah. Final verdict? I was expecting it to be horrible, but it ended up just plain "blah." Not really worth the time, as it' I picked this up out of schadenfreude, really.

    What can say about this book? Really it's a funny read and hits on so many subjects that we all want to understand and learn to deal with...blind dates, bad kissers, acne, breakups. But, it truly is a very, very enjoyable and quick read. It's one of these reads where you can open to any page and begin reading.

It circulated in my office and it had everyone laughing and telling their own bad experiences and thinking perhaps they'd have done better if they had the advice the 3 authors offer very freely in the book. For example: How to have sex outdoors, how to sabotage your ex's new relationship and how to spot a fake toupee. If you need a good laugh, read this book!! I'm not one to enjoy this type of thing...but it really is not the stupid and immature kind of joke book. It would make a great gag gift.

    Stopped reading it when it started calling transgender people "he or she" and saying that you determine what their gender are from stereotypical traits rather than them actually telling you it and you accepting it, fuck off, that is not a red flag in any way, in fact the writer of this book is more of a red flag than anything they write in this book. I mean I guess there's some bullshit party tricks here and there but really that nullified anything about this book, the actual warnings are all ba Stopped reading it when it started calling transgender people "he or she" and saying that you determine what their gender are from stereotypical traits rather than them actually telling you it and you accepting it, fuck off, that is not a red flag in any way, in fact the writer of this book is more of a red flag than anything they write in this book. I mean I guess there's some bullshit party tricks here and there but really that nullified anything about this book, the actual warnings are all based on popular culture conventions and was it really that hard to just write the common basic Red flags that actually matter rather than be a unfunny prick? Jeez.

    Funnier than the Worst-Case Scenario book for the holidays, this book is full of lots of step by step instructions to get people out of all sorts of sex related mishaps. Topics include (but are not limited to) how to spot fakes (breasts, toupees), how to fake an orgasm (not recommended--by me or the book), what to do if you can't remember the name of the person you wake up next to, how to ditch your date, what to do if don't have enough money to pay the bill, and how to successfully have an affa Funnier than the Worst-Case Scenario book for the holidays, this book is full of lots of step by step instructions to get people out of all sorts of sex related mishaps.

Highly recommended, if only for a laugh.

    I'm completely saving this book for Falon, once she starts dating. I spotted this at a garage sale, and thought it would be a laugh, which it totally is. Even more hilarious is how COMPLETELY useful it is. I now know how to tell if I'm on a date with man or a woman, how to escape from a bathroom, how to disguise myself if I have to escape a date, and how to remove a bra. Well, I knew the last one already. They also trod into my territory in that I still plan on writing a book on how to have a prop I'm completely saving this book for Falon, once she starts dating.

Back off my grill, WCS people.

    It is refreshing to see the Worse Case Scenario format applied to one of the most emotional aspects of human existence: romantic relationships. The authors (who now include for the first time Jennifer Worick), cut through the emotional anguish, the stress, and mystery of relationships, simply declaring "If this happens, do this." The authors manage to stop just short of cynicism, even when they're explaining how to ditch a bad date, how to have an affair, and how to fake an orgasm.

    Overall I found the book informative; however there were a few parts that distracted me. I felt that the book came off as seriotyically sexist because it specified a male or a female in a certain roll when it could've been genderless words such as, your date, you, or they. Other than that, I enjoyed the book. I thought it was funny and informative. Quick read and time worth spent! Overall I found the book informative; however there were a few parts that distracted me.

    Lets face it folks... Some of the stuff you get in this book is more amusing than helpful. There is a good chance that some of the content will never be used by me in real life. But still it was so funny. I actually would not mind reading the rest of the books in this series. Never know when such information could come in handy.

    Cute book. I gave it as a gift to a male friend who was down on his dating luck and he actually used the "remove a bra with one hand" trick to snag his first serious girlfriend a couple months later. Well...maybe it wasn't the smooth move that sealed the deal, but I bet it didn't hurt. Cute book.

    It was ok. Received this book from a friend when I divorced. Meant to be humorous and practical for re-entering the dating scene. But since I do not want to know how to have sex in the bathroom of an airplane, I found the book not practical for me.

    This book is hilarious! From how to tell if your date is an axe-murderer to how to "pass gas" while on a date! Great for a light read. This book is hilarious! From how to tell if your date is an axe-murderer to how to "pass gas" while on a date! Great for a light read.

    This book seemed dull; it rarely succeeded at being funny. I learned very little. It's probably worth no more than a superficial look. This book seemed dull; it rarely succeeded at being funny. I learned very little. It's probably worth no more than a superficial look.

    There are a couple of tips in here I'd actually use (if I had to). The rest is pretty silly. There are a couple of tips in here I'd actually use (if I had to). The rest is pretty silly.

    Here's some real news you can use on the dating scene. There's also quite a bit of news you can't use, but all-in-all, I was able to learn a few tricks and things to be on the lookout for.

    For those that are as inept as I in the dating world, this book is pretty funny, or sad, or maybe just strangely useful.

    But the question I have is what use IS knowing you could block body odor with chamomile tea bags when most restaurants only carry black or green tea?
