Publisher's Summary

The Believer magazine presents a compendium of advice from producers, writers, and actors of The Daily Show, Saturday Night Live, Parks and Recreation, The Late Show with David Letterman, The Hangover, and The Colbert Report, along with other musicians, cartoonists, New Yorker writers, and those similarly unqualified to offer guidance.
Here Amy Sedaris describes the perfect murder for unwanted hermit crabs - you will need a piece of meat and a brick. Simon Rich explains how to avoid being found dead in your underwear by firemen - buy some long johns. Zach Galifianakis provides insight into how he changed his name without a social security card - he just started calling himself Adam Zapple, and it stuck. Bob Saget finally illuminates what "friends with benefits" really means - a nonsexual relationship wherein your ex makes monetary deposits into your bank account.

Stupid, not funny, worst audible ever.

This production is nominally a set of advice-column-like questions submitted by Believer readers that are answered in advice columnist style by the contributors, presumably in their own voices. The questions were uninteresting, and the answers were without exception UNamusing. Just not funny or even interesting. I gave up after a few hours of listening that did not raise so much as a chuckle. I abandoned listening to this, and started listening instead to "How to be a woman" by Caitlin Moran, and was relieved to discover that my capacity for appreciating humor, wit, and a very appealing presentation had not been permanently crippled by the Believer garbage. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY. Very disappointing, because in the past I have enjoyed a lot of humor from the mcsweeneys mill. I only regret that I could not figure out how to give it zero stars in every category.

Not funny

Any additional comments?

I don't know anything about the first book or The Believer or any kind of prior knowledge that might have made this book funny. This book was a waste of time and money.
It has a funny title and funny names associated with it, but it is not funny.
The book is set up in a Q&A format. Unfunny questions are asked and unfunny answers are given.
