  1. Justin says:
    Anthologies can be kind of repetitive, with entry after entry harping on the same tired theme The theme for Things I ve Learned From Women Who ve Dumped Me feels particularly uninspired, as the topic of men bitching about women is arguably the most prominent in the history of literature But the credentials of editor Ben Karlin co editor of America The Book combined with the book s impressive list of contributors Andy Richter, Stephen Colbert, Neal Pollack, piqued my interest all the same.The hi [...]

  2. Chloe says:
    I heard this in its Audiobook format, which probably led me to appreciate it than I otherwise would have Having each author read their short essay was perfect, especially with such instantly recognizable voices as Patton Oswalt, John Oliver and Will Forte It s a very short read, even the audiobook was barely over three hours long, but one that will have you chuckling all the way I particularly liked Dan Savage s ode to the vagina that scared him out of the closet and Larry Wil s my new baby hat [...]

    I know what you re thinking and no I am not and was not a lesbian, not that there is anything at all wrong with that I picked up this book at ye old Costco, simply because of some of the writers names on the cover Nick Hornby, Stephen Colbert, Bob Odenkirk, Andy Richter, and Dan Savage, to name a few Also, I secretly wanted to know what relationships were like for men As a straight woman, you never can tell Men are simple in their thoughts and emotions NOT SIMPLETONS just not as complex as women [...]

  4. Sandra says:
    As any other anthology some contributions are funnier than others I was in need of a quick, humorous book for a 24 hour toppler readathon and it did the trick.

  5. Hannah Garden says:
    Eh I d hoped this was going to be hilarious and insightful, but all the humor was pretty much the same thing all the way through low grade irony and drab self flagellation Buncha weinerdogs.

  6. doreen says:
    This is a great read The writing from most of the contributors is funny, interesting and enjoyable I think there was only maybe one or two works that were sort of meh for me On the whole, I found myself very engaged in the writing, having finished this book in two days I took a break to watch the first disc of Pee Wee s Playhouse.The formatting of each essay anecdote differs, including comic strip contributions and and illustration Marcel Dzama My favourite entries include Lesson 9 Women are Nev [...]

  7. Valerie says:
    I was expecting much from this book Edited by Ben Karlin former editor of The Onion, former executive producer of The Daily Show and co creator of The Colbert Report this book should have been a rip roarin romp through male inadequacy and insecurity It started out strong, but somewhere along the line it became the male version of chick lit dick lit And boring to boot.At first, it was good for a few laughs But then I laughed less And got bored And maybe started to skim a bit And then started to [...]

  8. Anastacia says:
    This was one of the funniest books I have ever read, and it s one I will reach for many times to read again A collection of humorous short stories by some of the funniest, wittiest men of our time, this is a book that never fails to cause me to laugh out loud until the end.The book is a collection of essays written by hilarious men such as Nick Hornby, Stephen Colbert, Bob Odenkirk who discusses why nine years is the perfect amount of time to be in a bad relationship by year nine you try everyth [...]

  9. Jamie Collins says:
    This is a pretty weak collection I ended up skimming over several of these essays I expected better from Dan Savage his books about his family are very good David Wain s entry composed entirely of cellphone conversations was good I also liked Patton Oswalt s essay where he explains how a past relationship with a crazy stripper puts his minor quibbles with his wife into perspective And Ben Karlin s mom s forward was better than Karlin s essay.

  10. Books Ring Mah Bell says:
    done chucklelicious I was not sure who half these people were, very funny men easy and quick just like your mom.

  11. Elevate Difference says:
    I have a love hate relationship with liberal publications, like the New York Times, that discuss progressive issues and at the same time print articles that seem to use stone age mentality to prove the differences between women and men I am forever intrigued by science s never ending love affair with sexual dimorphism, and articles with the headlines What Do Women Want and Varying Sweat Scents Noted By Women seem to fill the pages of publications every day I have a similar love hate relationship [...]

  12. Christopher says:
    I threw on the audiobook to kill a slow day at work All the writers read their own pieces, which, if for nothing other than hearing John Oliver slag Nick Hornby, is worth it The best pieces come from where you d expect David Wain dealing with a perpetual stander upper Bob Odenkirk detailing his Nine year Bad Relationship Plan Dan Savage coming to terms with his sexuality Stephen Colbert s heavily redacted by his wife reminiscence of a fellow waitress and the mighty Patton Oswalt s supremely funn [...]

  13. lp says:
    Bad Disappointing And further evidence that Stephen Colbert is not funny in print A piece by Patton Oswalt was quite amusing, in which he realizes how awesome his wife is particularly in comparing her to his ex girlfriend a terrible, violent, uneducated stripper Actually, now that I think about it, Damian of Kulash, Jr of OKGO had a pretty sweet as in aww piece, and Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne I know did an interesting and humorous breakdown of a cheesy love song Oh, and of course Dan [...]

    Oy ve Where did they get this many whack jobs So, I want to tell you, these are Not the type of men I d be with They are in no way, shape or form even qualified as mensch More like, schlemielueless.What s is all of these guys are now the pride joy of their mammalas All are now very successful comedians But did I find them funny, well not at all I m thinking, that this book written by men is for mene I honestly didn t get what they were talking aboutDo I blame the women who dumped them Nope not [...]

  15. Oriana says:
    Meh and meh and meh This is pretty much what you d expect a bunch of moderately clever dudes being self deprecatingly funny except less funny than you d hope Despite a whole lot of filler, there are some some great moments, like when Andy Richter calls the people who run television networks a bunch of gutless cunts or when Dan Savage describes his first time putting his finger in a vagina as it feeling like a large, lukewarm piece of lasagna with hair David Rees is funny Will Forte and Todd Hans [...]

  16. Patrick says:
    Really funny collection of essays, including, but not limited to Bob Odenkirk s transcription of part of his seminar 9 Years is Exactly the Right Amount of Time to be in a Bad Relationship, Stephen Colbert s would be heart warming story that is all but completely blacked out by his wife s marker to keep things private, Will Forte s reminiscence of a girlfriend who kept riding off on another guy s motorcycle but kept insisting they were just friends, Patton Oswalt comparing his wife at her worst [...]

  17. Kim says:
    I m not sure why I kept reading this book Maybe because each essay was by a different author, I had hope it would get better Nope This book made me have nightmares about junior high school Only a few of the essays were even remotely illuminating, interesting or funny The entry by Dan Savage yes, of Savage Love was um eye opening, but I guarantee you it will make any woman who reads it feel ugly and disgusting, even though that is really not his intent Go buy something else, such as How to Remode [...]

  18. Marissa Morrison says:
    This book was surprisingly dull and morose, considering that most of the contributors are humorists What many of the writers learned is that breaking up hurts and they don t have a clue about what went wrong with their relationships Only a handful of the pieces like the ones by Dan Savage, Will Forte, and Stephen Colbert really held my attentionchokengtitik

    titikchokengs I don t know why my review says spoiler alert at the top I didn t put that there.


  19. Amy says:
    My husband I listened to this on a car ride We expected it to be a comedy, and while some of the short stories were humorous, overall, it was very disappointing We didn t laugh, and we found ourselves skipping over most of the chapters because they were just crude and not funny Very disappointed especially with all of the contributors.


  20. Katie says:
    A collection of essays from male comedians and writers about dating, relationships and their issues with women Some of the contributions were entertaining and others not so much I laughed out loud a couple times, but not quite as often as I hoped Overall a quick, light read with a little something fun for anyone who has ever dated anyone, ever.

  21. Trevor says:
    I was hoping for laugh out loud stories, and while there were many smiles, I ended up feeling a little down these are stories wrought with insecurities, damages, and regrets written within plenty of self deprecation It had me, and will have others guys and girls , reflecting on past romances that left their psychological welts and fond memories behind.

  22. Felicity says:
    Eh.I thought there was going to be something interesting or at least funny in this book I really found neither.

  23. clare says:
    At first I was like, oh, how cute Men are sensitive and insecure etc Eventually I found myself thinking, Where are your huevos

  24. Chelsea says:
    Great audio book, with essays read by the authors very funny men, with some witty observations on dating usually unsuccessfully.

  25. R. says:
    Highly recommend Paul Simms I m Easy which can be read at The New Yorker under the title Four Short Crushes newyorker humor 2007 0

  26. Alberto Lopez says:
    Interesting but not much It s like driving by a car crash You know it s wrong to look but just can t stop doing it.
