    1. Reading this book was sort of like eating a doughnut. Do you ever have that moment halfway through a Krispy Kreme or those old-fashioneds they sell for $1.40 at Starbucks where all of a sudden you're like, "Why am I eating this?" And then another part of your brain—probably more directly connected to your sugar centers (that's totally a real medical term)—goes, "Uh, because it's in your MOUTH? It's a DOUGHNUT? Whatever. Chew, bitch, chew!" So you do, and later you're like, "Well. I did THAT" [...]


    2. I only read You're a Horrible Person, But I Like You because 1) I was searching for Sarah Vowell's new Unfamiliar Fishes on the library website but landed twelfth in the reserve line, while this book showed up under Ms. Vowell's search results as immediately available, and 2) the book seemed light on a weekend when I couldn't read heavy. You're a Horrible Person, But I Like You served its purpose, I suppose, but weakly. I'm not sure of the book's source but if I'm assessing the situation correct [...]


    3. The premise of this book is simple: A few dozen comedians provide "advice" to individuals who have written in to The Believer magazine asking questions. The contributor list (Aziz Ansari! Sarah Silverman! Paul F! Zach Galifinakis! Mindy Kaling!) reads like a who's who of my personal comedy favs, so I was certain I'd be at least amused by this book. Unfortunately, this was not the case. The problem is, the book is terrible. Wait, I can get more specific than that: The problem is, both the comedie [...]


    4. Good for an afternoon's worth of mild chuckles; I read it in one sitting. (Sidebar: if you get up to pee, come back and immediately pick up the book again, it doesn't count as a new sitting, does it? Whatever, I reject your draconian "sitting" laws. I play by my own rules: none.)It's a little disappointing that this book isn't more LOL-worthy than it is, given the insane constellation of talent involved. Seriously, every living funny smart humor-type person you've ever heard of is repped here, w [...]


    5. The best way I can some up my experience of reading this book is kind of like going thrift shopping, and being so excited because you just found something truly amazing, say a new vintage dress. You get so excited about the dress, and start getting excited about all the places you're going to wear it, and how great it's going to lookd then once you get home and put it back on, you realize that it has this weird stain that you didn't notice before, and kind of like a weird lingering smell that wo [...]


    6. It would be hard to decide whether the questions in this book—”Dear Tim and/or Eric, I really want to fight a bear. How can I make this happen?”—or the answers, are more ridiculous (a response from Cera on “what to do this weekend” includes advice on planting an arroyo or soapberry tree, waiting 2-3 hours for it to grow and proceeding to talk to it). Each comedian takes a unique approach to dealing with their imaginary audience, and responses run the gamut from personal anecdotes to [...]


    7. A series of fake letters asking for advice, answered by various comedians acting as agony aunts/uncles.There's certainly some funny stuff here, and as a book to keep by the toilet to pass those long, solitary, occasionally puncuated moments it is a fine and appropriate companion. The problem is after a while you start noticing that most of these comics tend to approach the letters in much the same way. Misunderstand what's being asked; answer a completely different question; act outraged at the [...]


    8. You're a Horrible Person is really hit and miss. The base concept is a lot of fun, an advice column with intentionally bad advice, but the execution doesn't always work. Part of it is if you don't really like a particular comedian's flavor of humor, you probably won't like his or her piece of the book. But a lot of these feel really phoned in. Nevertheless, some of it is really funny, like laugh out loud even though your coworkers in the break room are giving you weird looks funny. And it's a qu [...]


    9. Yeah I read this book. Who are you to judge me? The river does not always have to run deep. Oh because you only read the classics, and my books don't count as reading. Well that is very pedantic of you so why don't you abscond away from me. Yeah I know GRE vocab words too motherfucker. So I guess the real difference between you and I is that I have friends, get laid, and people are capable of loving me. Your over concern with the English language just proves how unattractive you are. Keep showin [...]


    10. I have only read the first few sections and I already know I need to buy this (which is rare!). If you like weirdo humor that is very out-there and snarky, you will love this book. This book seems to contain every single person I think is funny, like, they got them all!!!! Creepy.


    11. Aggressively unfunny. I chose this because it was free and I needed short, funny reads. The pieces were indeed short.



    12. Meh. I wanted this to be hilarious. So much talent in one book. But it just wasn't very good. Too forced?It would have been much better if each author had read their section aloud.



    13. I'm not really sure where they were going with this book. I'm not familiar with 'The Believer' or 'Sedarisms' specifically, but I am familiar with Amy Sedaris' brand of non-sensical humor and am pretty sure this is exactly what they were aiming for.When I read other reviews for this book, there were lots of references to 'hipsters.' This is a term that I've heard thrown around for the past eight years or so, and I still don't know exactly what it means. And more importantly, I don't know if I am [...]


    14. I thought this one was going to be funny, considering the wealth and breadth of the writers. These fictional Q&A's mostly aren't funny, which is sad. Also, a lot of the answers are written in the same style, which made me feel as though one person was responsible for writing the entire thing.There were, however, some exceptions.Samantha BeeDear Samantha: I was wondering if you could give me some investment advice. I’m about to retire and I’m a little freaked.Leah Dawson Sarasota, FL Dear [...]


    15. If you need a laugh, pick up this easy-read. If you want to feel euphoric because the world contains *so many* very funny people, this is the book for you. If you are a very gullible and literal person, do not follow any of the advice in this book!If you need advice about how to deal with cat-callers, ask Samantha Bee.For clarity on the carbohydrate content of cashews vs. semen, give yourself over to Michael Ian Black.Larry Doyle can help you see why being "likeable" is not all it's cracked up t [...]


    16. While walking through the library a bright red book with a funny title stopped me in my tracks, "You're a Horrible Person, But I Like You". This title made me wonder. Could I be a horrible person? NahCould people I know be horrible? Maybe some good advice would help.The believer magazine presents one wacky collection of advice from such producers, writers, and actors as Zach Galifanakis, Sarah Silverman, Buck Henry, Michael Cera, and Daniel Handler. From the start I couldn't help but laugh. Laug [...]


    17. I found about 25% of the jokes in this book (of which the entire book consists of jokes, even the About the Authors section) really, really funny, another 25% of the jokes I found really very unfunny and the remaining 50% of the jokes I just did not get (maybe, at David Cross's suggestion, because I'm not smart enough to "get" The Believer, but I highly doubt it). I found most of the time, the authors were trying really hard to be funny and it just didn't come across that way. Although I will sa [...]


    18. Dear Pete,I'm thinking of reading this book, but I'm not sure if it's a good use of my time. Also, I have foot pain. What should I do?-Foot Pain in BrisbaneDear Foot Pain,Let's start with the book.The concept of this book is hilarious and maybe undersold. The idea is that people write in with their Dear-Abby-Esque questions and then receive advice. BUT that advice comes from a linup of comedians and comedy writers, probably the worst people to ask.Because there are something like 30 different wr [...]


    19. I bought this book for $5 at a used book store in Delaware. The cover art and title were very striking and when I saw all the names of people who contributed to it's writing I just had to have it. My friend who was with me also threatened to spend $5 on it if I were to set it down for a mere second so I felt obligated to keep it close to me and eventually paid the monies to take it with me. While I was reading it I found some of the entries funny, and some horrendous. I was thinking I should mak [...]


    20. It’s easy to see why this is such a polarizing book, and I think it has a lot to do with expectations. Sure, people hate it because they think a lot of the “advice” given in this book is unhelpful and dumb. At the same time, some people found this book hilarious because it just tickled their absurdist mind. The truth probably lies somewhere in the middle. But, nevertheless, I thought this was an enjoyable book.For me the reason, ITYAHP (nice title, you fucking hipsters) works because I saw [...]


    21. This book was somewhat amusing. Although it is by no means hilarious, it is a very quick & easy read, so the effort-to-payoff ratio makes it worthwhile. The format is basically ridiculous questions, parodying what one might inquire of an advice columnist, answered by some of the currently most-celebrated minds in comedy today--Sarah Silverman, Adam McKay, Judd Apatow, Rainn Wilson, Larry Doyle, Amy Sedaris, Aziz Ansari, Janeane Garafolo, Zach Galifianakis, David Cross, Jim Gaffigan, Fred Arm [...]


    22. Given the names attached to this book I skipped reading all prior reviews and immediately purchased it. Oops.From the initial introduction by David Cross (actor: Tobias on Arrested Development, etc.) I was straight-faced disapointed. A quick read, but I still regret the commitment. It is clear that many of the contributing comedians put an absolutely minimal amount of effert into their contributions, and more often that not the questions are funnier than than the responses. With a few exceptions [...]


    23. I don't have much to say about this one; it's a collection of sarcastic/sometimes funny advice from The Believer's "Sedaratives" column. It does exactly what it says on the tin. There are a lot of comedians I like represented here, a bunch of Daily Show correspondents and people like Sarah Vowell, Aziz Ansari, and Amy Sedaris (of course). There were a few people I didn't recognize and a few I don't really like, but not as many as I expected.The problem I had with You're a Horrible Person, But I [...]


    24. This book was just downright hilarious. And yet, In the same aspect, It was kind of dumb. I change my answer from a 5 star to a 3 star now, because after really thinking about it, I was pretty back and forth throughout the entire book. I do think I even skimmed over some of the questions and just read them without really taking in anything because I didn't really like/know the person who was answering them, or I just didn't seem to think they were funny. However, WHY is it that some of the stupi [...]


    25. Fail, book. I didn't strictly read every page or"letter" (This book is just a bunch of fake advice letters with fake advice answers), but I did read/skim a lot. Also, I'm telling I read this last year so it wont count toward my 50 book goal of this year, b/c it doesn't deserve a spot. Okay? Okay. It's justt funny. There are a lot of funny people who contributed to this book, but's just the setup. Set them all up for unfunny failure. Judd Apatow's section was just him going like "Are these real [...]


    26. I arbitrarily decide to correlate the number of stars given to the percentage of material in the book that lives up to what it is supposed to do. That is, since this is a humorous book giving humorous advice, I should use the following scheme:80-100% funny = 5 stars60-80% funny = 4 stars40-60% funny = 3 stars20-40% funny = 2 stars0-20% funny = 1 starSo, numerically speaking, I should find at least 1 out of 5 pieces of advice funny in order to give the book any more than one star. Unfortunately, [...]


    27. The format of this book is somewhat limiting - a collection of advice columns where a humorist answers a set of usually-inane questions - but the list of comedians they collected to do this is just staggering. There's an amazing slate of The State players, current and former Daily Show correspondents/writers, a surprisingly large number of movie directors, and a handful of my favorite stand-up comedians. While some of the columnists don't seem to do well with the format and some only have a limi [...]


    28. The believer magazine has an advice column called "Sedaratives" - where everyday people write in for advice on literally anything and advice is dispensed by famous comedians, actors, directors and writers such as Sarah Silverman, Zach Galifankas, Judd Apatow - a collection of them from the magazine have been republished in this book.I had such high hopes for this book but I found most of the questions to be more interesting and frankly funnier then the advice given by the "professionals". A few [...]
