    1. Warning: do not read this book in public places, such as quiet coffee shops! I did and burst out laughing several times and got "the look". It truly discusses the troubles we Americans face: inferior toilet paper, buffets missing key items, toilets that flush poorly, and only having tap water to drink. I was hooked at the beginning of the book when he described me, the reader, as someone reading it on their Kindle. (I was.) It is a wonderfully humorous look at what we, as Americans, consider tri [...]

    2. Okay. For those giving this book a low rating: It's supposed to be light and fun to read. It's a comedy and not meant to be a literary masterpiece (or at least I don't think the author intended it to be the next Great American Novel). That being said, it is a wonderful book and for the price, how could anyone possibly complain? I found the humor particularly relevant and have often "ranted" about the same topics as Ben. I liked the short pieces and, yes, they seem a bit like stand-up comedy. But [...]

    3. A farcical list of 101 annoying little issues we face in America on a daily basis, each followed by a two-page rant on the subject. Perhaps you've been aggravated by some of these too?:* Bought too much food and now everything's molding* The bio-degradable SunChips bag hurts my ears* Paid in cash and now I have to carry around coins* The battery on my key fob died* It's impossible to buy just one thing at CostcoSee? They're funny if you read with tongue firmly planted in cheek. Residents of thir [...]

    4. Should have an "Americans Only" warningI really looked forward to reading a satirical view of our 'first world problems' - this wasn't it. The writing was woefully inadequate and it read like a series of one-liners from an unsuccessful stand-up comic but the greatest disappointment came from the fact that this book is 94% applicable only in America. If you are not American (and America, most of the world isn't), then there will be little in this book that you will relate to, or find even mildly [...]

    5. Terrible. Stumbled upon it on Kindle and should have known better; it's never a good idea to base a book on a trending topic on Twitter. The format here is to pick a deliberately ridiculous "problem" like noisy Sun Chips bags and embark upon a mercifully brief but shoddily edited (perhaps just NON-edited) rant on the subject. It's kind of like Stuff White People Like turned on its head - and of course it's REALLY like the preposterously played-out "What's the deal with" standup shtick. The autho [...]

    6. Ben, you would make an excellent stand-up comedian. I'd definitely go to your shows. I like how you think (mostly because we think the same way), and you have a gift of insight that makes for really funny observations. I think you have less talent as an author, and the material in this "book" would have been conveyed a lot better in a different form. It was tiring reading rant after rant like this, especially because each one had such definite conclusions. They could have been organized better a [...]

    7. this books was awesome. wickedly funny, it made me laugh out loud. if ben was a stand up Comic In my area i would defenitly go see him. two thumbs way up

    8. This book had the worst humor. It was as dry as the Sahara. I was too annoyed with the writing, I quit reading it.

    9. We've all had these thoughts. We've all shared these complaints. We've all felt like dicks knowing that these trivial problems are more important to us than actual important issues. Yet we all get frustrated by these seemingly intractable problems of our first world lifestyle. You might feel bad voicing your opinions on these annoyingly trivial thorns in our collective sides but Ben doesn't!

    10. WARNINGWARNINGDo NOT read this book in a room full of strangers. This book is one of few that literally had me "laughing out loud". I simply could not control myself. As a result, I ended up looking like I escaped the closest Looney bin. This book both relatable and hilarious!

    11. This is a great toilet-reading book. It's comprised of short, sometimes funny, essays about coping with life in a first world nation. There's nothing really deep and meaningful here's just fun to read.

    12. The book is self-published, and while the author is often funny, having an editor would have helped enormously. There are so many errors in grammar, usage, and punctuation that I was too distracted to enjoy the observations as much as I could have.

    13. Cute, but if you didn't understand satire and sarcasm, you might mistake him for a whiney child. Light and humorous. Made me smile when I was sick. Served its purpose. If you don't like potty humor, you may not like some of itbut that being said, it wasn't too bad. :)

    14. Biggest First World Problem: Biting into a raisin infested cookie when you were expecting delicious chocolate chips. It's fascist, that's what it is.I want to be friends with this dudeis book was hilarious!

    15. I read this today in a couple of hours. It was funny. No story line or anything. Just random thoughts on random topics. I did laugh out loud and some of the fart related stuff and the work stuff. Fun quick read with excellent points.

    16. Needed something lightweight and fun to read and greatly enjoyed this collection. A quick read that had me laughing hard enough that I experienced the first world problem of needing to wipe laughter-tears from my eyes on my pajama shirt.

    17. A light-hearted book. Much of it was silly but it did show how petty people can be about everyday life. Reminds us to be thankful for what we do have!!

    18. Rated 6.95 out of 10. This is a collection of short essays (most extremely short). While some were really excellent most were nothing to brag about.

    19. Read a sample of the book, which I felt was enough. Each chapter points out a "problem" of most Americans, in dry humorous writing. A funny concept but I wasn't compelled to finish it.

    20. A lighthearted quick read. I laughed a few times, mostly at myself because I suffer from a lot of these "problems."

    21. At several points, I laughed so hard that I was in tears! It's made even more funny by the fact that I guarantee most of us have had these same thoughts!

    22. Author has a nasaly, whiny voice while reading his own work. Hint: Don't be so cheap nexxt time, hire a professional narrator. Would have been much better.

    23. My husband and I just finished listening to the audio version of this book, which is read by the author. We enjoyed every minute of it!

    24. Really, I wasted my free book for the month on this. Some parts are funny however, it is awfully written and isn't engaging. Unfortunate, but glad I didn't spend money on it!
