Author:

“Hog Wild is a humor author, stand-up comedian, and lover of chicken wings.
He produces funny dating advice videos and other comedy on his web site.”

Description:

Subtitled “101 funny love advice answers, 20 sexy stories, and lots of jokes,” HogWild has “collected his best jokes, stories, and hysterical dating advice from his New York City stage show and his popular video series,” and compiled them into this book.

Appraisal:

This book was hilarious. If you aren’t turned off by humor that at times, at least by some standards, is crude (although no more so than what you might find on a cable TV comedy special) and if you’re able to overlook the occasional typo (this could stand another round of proofing to shakeout a lot of stragglers), then chances are you’ll feel the same. At least some of the love advice might even be good, just remember that this is comedy and the laugh is the goal. Hog Wild has a few “characters” that chime in to help him from time to time that include Nerd Boy (I wonder if he suggested the book’s title) and Redneck Guy, who provide some alternative perspectives on the world of dating. Just like a standup comedy act, without the need to dress up and travel downtown.

FYI:

Adult language and situations.

Format/Typo Issues:

A large number of typos and proofing errors.

Rating: *** Three stars

WOW.

Hog Wild has a great website with lots of video humor. It's well worth visiting for advice on how to man-up.

Some might be crude, but it was not rude. Good stuff.
