    1. Not sure what purpose a book like this serves. It's not particularly funny, nor is it particularly informative. I'm not actually sure they were even all real, paying jobs. But hey, if you're a writer who can make a little bit of money throwing together something like this, more power to ya.

    2. Good for a chuckle when red during my dinner break at work. There's nothing wrong with my job, I love it. Still, it's interesting to contemplate what my future could be had I not gone to college and furthered my education. Some of the jobs in here are one-in-a-million, like Saddam Hussein's body double, the human regurgitator, or a grown woman who serves as a 'little boy' hand model in toy commercials. Others, like telemarketer, fast food produce chopper, or grocery store buggy wrangler are amon [...]

    3. I picked this up one day and read it cover to cover, which wasn't hard because it's very short, about one page of text and another full-page photo for each of the 50 jobs deemed worse than yours by the author. I'm not sure data entry is really that bad (I do it and my fingers are not currently bloody and bandaged). The one job that seemed pretty OK to me was "chicken sexer." It pays pretty nicely and you get to handle baby chicks all day. I mentioned it to my friend and she pointed out the bigge [...]

    4. Started and finished this on my lunch hour. Eh. I've had some of the jobs in this book. However Mike Rowe has done far worse on "Dirty Jobs". Although I did skip one job as I have a SEVERE fear of it. Vomit. I think it was Vomit Inspector or something for a site called Rate My Vomit. Ummm no thanks. I'm all set.

    5. This is actually a pretty informative little book. There were no page numbers, but each job took up 2 pages, so 51 jobs (including the write-in space for your job) = 102 pages. There’s a picture of a person performing each job, with information pertaining to skills needed, educational requirements, uniform, pay scale, job description, opportunities for advancement, benefits and drawbacks.

    6. Some of these jobs really have "The Eww Factor" goin' on.This is a quick and (sometimes) funny read. Great for having on hand for those times when you are waiting in line somewhere and have a few minutes to read but not enough time to get lost in a novel.

    7. Justin Racz has given us enough chuckles to justify the existence of this small book. And chances are good that most of the 50 jobs listed actually are worse than yours -- perhaps worse even than writing silly books for a living. :-)

    8. ehhh dont bother buying or borrowing this book, its pretty old and patheticd even if it was up to datea job is a job, as long as it gets you money to live your life, then thats what it matters most.right??

    9. If you ever think that you've got the worst , bored work ever. So I'll highly recomend this book to u . Sooo many funny stories about other job that pathetic than yours.

    10. Data Entry.Sherpa.Mop duty.Adult-Video store clerk.Rat catcher.Hazardous materials remover.Shopping cart valet.Gravedigger.Human canvas.Temp.

    11. A fun little book. Although not all of the jobs were truly that bad (like temp, for example). And I've heard of worse jobs. But, a fun little book, nonetheless.

    12. now that Mike Rowe's 'Dirty Jobs' TV show exists, this book simply pales in comparison, but still a neat little quick read.

    13. Sadly I have aspired to hold some of these jobs. Adult store video clerk? Think of the interesting people you would encounter on the job. Or Human Canvas. Who doesn't love street performance art?
