    I was pretty darn disappointed in this. There didn't seem to be too much to the book and it felt like what was there was a little representative. Things were just not as funny as I had hoped for and a lot of the pictures seemed to only be "fails" because their context wasn't shown.

    Another bite-sized tome from the world the Internet has given us, this laugh-a-minute image collection parades on display the ineptitude of individuals who only had ONE JOB...and failed miserably! Yet another soundbite of a book leaves us wondering when this genre will grow into something more substantial, or, far more unlikely, fade away completely because of the loss of the novelty factor! A very enjoyable read, nonetheless, and a comforting reminder that, no matter *how* bad you are at your job, at least you're not one of these people.

    This is a fairly standard blog spin off book with some random pictures submitted from the internet, some more “real” than others; ostensibly recording various incidences of gross incompetence, naive gaffs, accidental blunders, and other weird things somebody took a picture of once. There is no back story to any of the images collected, and a few seem suspiciously contrived; some are not even "fails," but simply bad luck or just random weirdness. However, setting the book up as a pseudo-travel book, complete with scrawled notes from other readers, was an inspired move, particularly the maps. Good for some laugh when your network is down.

    A book that will have you giggling or laughing to your heart's content as you look through pictures presented within the pages. This is mankind's best of the best spelling mistakes, errors and twisted thinking put into a humorous touristic guide to Fail Nation. The book is easy to read while including some tips and/or tidbits that will help to tie everything together in one book that flows well. And since so many categories are covered there is guaranteed to be something for everyone. ~A Funny Book~

    The "Fail Nation" actually has many similarities to picture books. What makes this book different is because it gains life from a blog. "Fail Nation" features many stupid, silly, ignorant, unnecessary yet unintentionally mistakes on signboards, public announcements (or other sources) from almost all over the globe; as photographed by many people (contributors to the blog). This book was interesting to me because I used to take pictures of the same "theme" and posted them into my Facebook account.

    This book, a celebration of the poorly worded and mislabeled, was loaned to me. I'm please about that fact because I read this book quickly and probably wouldn't refer to it again. But I did enjoy it.My favorites: "Dong" Insurance; "Cool American" flavored Doritos; a Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen sign reading "jalapenis chicken;" and "diesel fried chicken" proclaimed from the outside wall of a truck stop.Yes, these were funny. Thank you Failblog for collecting the photos in one place.

    The book is from the folks at Failblog. But it has an interesting layout: it is organized as a tourist guide to the Fail Nation. The photos are funny, but funnier are some of the comments the authors add to the photos. If you have seen the blog, then you will enjoy the book. If not, then you owe it to yourself to go see the blog after reading the book. It is a very quick read. I had a couple of good laughs.

    El libro del blog Fail nation. Básicamente son unas cien fotos de carteles colocados con muy poca reflexión previa (sirva de ejemplo el de la portada ENTRANCE ONLY: DO NOT ENTER). Alguna sonrisilla cae por lo naïf de la gente a veces, pero poco más. No es un libro malo, es solo levemente irrelevante.

    A funny book of pictures full of failures, masquerading as a "travel book". However, it doesn't take too much examination to realize that some of those pictures are unfairly labeled as human "failures", due to either being the result of natural disasters or of creative photography on the part of the picture taker. Not as good or as fun as their "Fail Harder" book by the same people.

    This was between 3 and 4 stars for me. I thought it was going to be a lot more funny. There were a few times that I laughed so hard I cried but there were other points where I was found something awkward or just plain rude. I found Cake Wrecks to be much more hilarious.

    I rank this book right up there with the People of Wal-Mart books. Fun fast paced read that should put a smile on your face.

    The spirit of photo blogs just don't translate well into books.
