50 Worse Dates Than Yours
by Justin Racz
ISBN 1-59691-264-2
Published January 2007 - Hardcover - 105 pages - $14.95

I'm sure we've all had our fair share of yucky dates.  The dates in this book are the ones to watch out for.  It's hard to get away from such lulus as Joe Hickey, Karaoke, She Was In It For The Meal, and Almost Divorced.  I found the "dates" not very original, with lines pinched from elsewhere - "I love the smell of exhaust in the morning", or from the MasterCard commercial - the same script format and then - "Priceless", or "Deal Or No Deal".  I mean, come on.  Think up your own lines.  Gimmicky and lacks substance of mirth, but I did love the paper of the book and its size.  I had to laugh when I read "writing contributions" at the back of the book.  You mean one person couldn't write this drivel on his own?  There can't possibly be more than 750 words for heaven's sake!  I write longer letters to my folks.  Illustrated.
Conclusion - Don't waste your money.  If this can get published then there has to be hope for me.
