    2. 7/10Ευχάριστο διάλειμμα από τα ''σοβαρά λογοτεχνικά βιβλία''. Νομίζω ότι είναι σχεδόν αδύνατον να μη γελάσει κάποιος βροντερά έστω και σε ένα σημείο. Όλο και κάποιος ''νόμος'' έχει συμβεί σε όλους μας!Υπήρξαν βέβαια και κάποιες σελίδες σερί που απλά τις γυρνούσα. Είναι και πώς '' [...]

    3. Μια ιδιαίτερη νότα μαύρου χιούμορ , με την προϋπόθεση να μη πάρει κάποιος τοις μετρητοίς τα αποφθεύγματα του βιβλιου και τον πιάσουν οι μαύρες του :Ρ

    5. "Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong." - Murhpy's LawOne of the most hilarious and oh-I-so-relate-to-this books I've read till now. You won't find a single page that's not funny and while reading, you'd find your head nodding in agreement to almost all the laws and comments. Murphy's Law is ubiquitous, no doubt. Highly recommended, must read :-)

    6. Cuando algo puede salir mal, va a salir mal. Es un bug del universo y no hay forma de arreglarlo. En cambio, podemos reírnos de lo absurdo para no caer en la desesperación total En esta compilación, Bloch reúne observaciones, leyes, corolarios y máximas acerca de la vida, las jerarquías, los comités y hasta las ciencias para explicar por qué la otra fila siempre se mueve más rápido. Muy bueno para reír y pensar un rato, siempre y cuando seas capaz de vivir tranquilo sabiendo que no es [...]

    7. This book is genius, it has helped me take life less seriously and consider founding a religion based on its premises!I have it always near me, it's like the dictionary of life, it will never disappoint me even if I just read a random page, I feel Murphy understood life better than Buddha (I'm joking obviously)I you are a pessimist, realist, stoic, or you simply enjoy black humour, this book is everything you were looking for.

    8. Sitamsini's Law of Sitcom Shenanigans : A neat summarisation of every plotline in every sitcom from the beginning of time can be found in between the pages of this copy of Murphy's Law : Complete.

    9. This books telling the truth of falling in life very funny. Each of quote seems like true and repeating in your life, so you can't ignore Murphy's Law. Love the book, very funny. One of my desk books.

    10. If anything can go wrong, it willA hilarious read of all those who have ever been exasperated by things going wrong, offering a set of rules with a wise and witty view of human predicament in the cosmos.Just read, relax, relate and laugh because basically that's the only thing you can do.

    11. Murphy’s Law is a hilarious take on why things go wrong; compiled by the American writer Arthur Bloch. I make a lot of statements and hold certain views which are often deemed highly pessimistic (even though I take cover under the word pragmatic) and yes, needless to say, a certain friend of mine relentlessly suggested this book. It was felt that I would definitely like it and as I could relate to the book a lot and I did get a killer of an offer for the Kindle edition at INR 31 (~0.41 EUR) an [...]

    12. Un primo mio me habló de este libro hace años y después otro de mis primos me contó que lo había leído y ademas ¡Lo había aplicado! Y pues Y pues ya era tiempo de que yo lo leyera.El libro esta estructurado de una manera un poco extraña, no es una descripción, propiamente dicha, sobre que es la ley de Murphy sino mas bien es un conjunto de leyes, axiomas y dichos de otras personas, junto a las de Murphy, sobre temas variados que van desde la dinámica de pareja, la oficina, el hogar ha [...]

    13. El tiempo ha dejado claro que estas leyes lo son al nivel de las leyes fundamentales de la físca como la gravedad, el electro-magnetismo o la termodinámica. Y más aún, porque cuando la física moderna encuntra fallos en aquéllas, las de Murphy siguen sólidas como el primer días 40 años más tarde. Así, uno no sabe si reír o llorar cuando comprueba empíricametne en una reunión de trabajo que se van cumpliendo los peores pronósticos, ley tras ley, colorario a colorario.

    14. Ich hatte das Buch noch nie vorher gelesen, aber es lag bei meinem Freund herum und ich blätterte erst nur rein, aber irgendwie konnte ich nicht lassen und habe mich heute Nacht hingesetzt und mich durch die Weisheiten / Halbweisheiten durchgearbeitet. Teilweise mit neuen Erkenntnissen ausgestattet starte ich ins neue Jahr.

    15. Delicios de înțepătoare. Nu reușesc câtuși de puțin să o descriu mai bine. În orice caz, e limpede faptul "că-mi ia mai multa vreme să explic de ce am făcut un lucru prost decât pur și simplu să-l fac bine"!

    16. A cute book - beautiful graphically, nice paper, cute size couldn't resist, so I got this copy for someone else. :)I can't read Japanese, but in the end there is also the full version in original (i.e. English). So many of them ring true to life

    17. Murphy's law is a one liner, and this book is full of such one-liners. Though they are common sense and experience driven for those in the field, many are really insightful and make you think twice. As both a serious and a comic read, this book straddles two fields well.

    18. Ένα ευχάριστο ανάγνωσμα, ευκολοδιάβαστο και διασκεδαστικό για όλους εξηγεί πολύ ανεξήγητα με τον πιο ξεκαρδιστικό τρόπο. Το συστήνω ανεπιφύλακτα σε όλους, νομίζω μια δόση γέλιου είναι απαραίτητη στις μέρες μας !!!

    19. Me he reido bastante con las leyes de Murphy, pero debo admitir que son bastante pesimistas. Bueno, supongo que lo importante es reirse de los reveses que te da la vida :)

    20. It was fun. And if you think this review was right, you're wrong. And if you thought it was bad. You're wrong again.

    21. My 6-yr old nephew Jordan sent me this book for my birthday (along with a camouflage Superman-logo t-shirt) & I'm enjoying it immensely.
