    This book is not much of a book, really. The pages consist of mainly photos with boring captions that aren't funny, usually pointing out the horror of people being overweight or daring to wear short shorts and bright clothing. There are a few stand out photos of folks that are a bit over the top, but many of the photos are kind of boring and just show a spectrum of real life people. So what there are a couple of people who wear shirts with rips in the back? That's a fashion thing. Another few ph This book is not much of a book, really.

There are a few stand out photos of folks that are a bit over the top, but many of the photos are kind of boring and just show a spectrum of real life people. So what there are a couple of people who wear shirts with rips in the back? That's a fashion thing. Another few photos of goth people. That's news? Some people wearing tie dye. Also not interesting. It's almost as if we are trying to make fun of average people for not living up to their obligation of being eternally 18 year old lingerie models. Sure, there are some folks who really just seem to tip the scales in favor of mentally unstable (those who go to the store with no pants for example. And I mean no pants at all.) Most of the photos were of overweight people and their various bodily protrusions and unfortunate selection in clothing sizes (always on the side of "too small".) But I'm not completely sure what's FUNNY about them. I feel kind of sorry for some of the people, like the man who was obviously homeless and pretty filthy (the authors referred to him as "PigPen" from Charlie Brown.) Sure he's dirty, but is being dirty FUNNY? Not to me. Another item that the authors seem to like is the mullet. Several photos are of people with mullets and sometimes with rat tails. Again, not funny. It's a mullet, so what? I don't get the funny there. I don't think the authors have a really good ability to sort and choose photos that are actually funny. They seem to go for very low brow stuff, anything sexual or vulgar is their cup of tea. They highlight gross sayings on people's T-shirts a lot but again -- not funny. Some folks were shopping while wearing pajamas or costumes and face paint. Weird a bit, but not funny. Maybe I was expecting this book to be humorous and entertaining, but it was quite boring. Even the anecdotes sparsely interspersed between the photos were a real let down. A couple of the stories didn't have any entertainment value at all and I wondered why they were included. It felt like the authors had a very small pool of letters from which to choose and just sort of accepted anything. I thought the book was supposed to be funny and mostly I found it just kind of sad and boring.

    Well, I just wasted about 30 minutes of my life reading this book. Why? I don't know. Thankfully, I didn't spend money on it. Don't bother. It's just people bashing and causes brain cells to commit suicide. Well, I just wasted about 30 minutes of my life reading this book. Why? I don't know. Thankfully, I didn't spend money on it.

    This wasn’t as good as I thought it would be. I couldn’t stand the captions. It just wasn’t at all funny and the humor fell flat for me. The stories were a little bland and the people came off as haughty and arrogant. I don’t want to rant, so all I’ll say is that I wanted to stab the BBW girl because she was annoying as hell. The pictures themselves were hilarious and I would have enjoyed the book more if the commentary wasn’t there. At first, I felt bad for laughing, but then I realized that th This wasn’t as good as I thought it would be. I couldn’t stand the captions. It just wasn’t at all funny and the humor fell flat for me.

At first, I felt bad for laughing, but then I realized that there are some people that are just asking for it. If you are overweight or a little on the heavier side, for god’s sake, please wear clothes that are actually flattering to your body type!! Oh my god, I swear that if I see one more picture of a large woman with back fat flapping out her halter, I will stab myself in the eyes. Seriously, how can someone go out in public like that and think they’re looking sexy?

    Like the website, PoW constantly shifts back and forth between making fun of images that are hilarious (guy shopping while dressed in a full set of Halo "Master Chief" armour) and ones that are just a bit mean (people who may be homeless or are morbidly obese). It's usually more amusing than cruel, but it's hard to put down the book and not feel a bit irritated by some of the cheap shots it occasionally makes against people who aren't always fair targets.

I'm happy to report that the book does feature a pic of that older gentleman who's on the website all the time dressed in what can only be called "Pimp-Fab" outfits. Hooray!

    People of Walmart is hilarious! I have seen my share of crazy sights at Walmart. The pictures are literally laugh-out-loud funny. This is the perfect stocking stuffer or birthday gag gift.I didn't realize there was a back boobs epidemic in this country. I have never felt better about myself than I have after reading this book. It is hilarious. The most amusing thing is that all the people thought they looked at least somewhat presentable. People of Walmart is hilarious! I have seen my share of crazy sights at Walmart.

    Not great. The captions aren't interesting or useful. The best People of Walmart pictures are of people who are outrageous in their dress or hairstyle. I also enjoy pictures of or stories about something interesting that actually happened at a Walmart. The majority of the pictures in the book feature people in unflattering clothes that don't fit well. That is not very interesting. I can't recommend that you spend money on this. Not great.

    Another book based on the website. The unbelievable thing is all these people left their house that day thinking, "I look good." And what is it about WalMart and goats? I was thinking there are some things inappropriate for teens, but then I realized they probably see these things in real life when they visit WalMart. Another book based on the website.

    I actually get a kick out of these books. They're pretty entertaining. The price is a bit steep, but it's still enjoyable and fun to show friends when you have company over. I can't think of anyone who wouldn't get a kick out of this book. If just only just to realize that Walmart has all kinds. *laughs* I actually get a kick out of these books.

    If you love peopleofwalmart.com you will love this book. Had a hard time not laughing out loud at several of the pictures and the captions. All I can say is that if you have ever shopped at Wal-Mart, you have probably seen someone who looks fairly close to the people shown in the book. It is well worth spending a little time going through this book.

    This book is so wrong, but the photos (most) are funny. However the captions are really awful and not funny in the least. I would not recommend buying this book.

    This wasn't funny. I normally love making fun of weirdos in Walmart or people doing messed up things like not wearing pants or something, but this book took making fun of people to another level that really was a step too far. Some of the pictures had people who were clearly homeless and the authors are trying to make jokes about how dirty they are. To me that's no longer funny.

    This was bought for me as a jokey Christmas present and that pretty much sums up the book. For 10 minutes or so you are horrified by what you see and you laugh.and point at the pictures with friends. Then you put it down safe in the knowlege that it is fine to forget all about it as it is in no way relevant to life. You will not need to reread this one. A transient pleasure, share with friends then move on.

    While the majority of these were funny, some of them didn't belong in the book. I thought the book was going to be funny throughout. I gave it two stars because there were some pretty funny ones in there, most of the stories were good and I liked the celebrities thrown in there, but it didn't do enough for the book for me that I would recommend it. Listen to other's warnings, don't waste your time. While the majority of these were funny, some of them didn't belong in the book. I thought the book was going to be funny throughout.

    I must say that this is not a great start to a scholarly year. This book is taken from the website of the same name, and it has pictures of extremely trashy people who are at Walmart shopping. They range from disgusting outfits and hairstyles to outlandish behavior. There is little to no content other than photos.

    This book is funny but not as funny as the blog. However, I am going on a diet because I didn't realize there was a back boobs epidemic in this country. I must lose weight because that is just gross. This book is funny but not as funny as the blog. However, I am going on a diet because I didn't realize there was a back boobs epidemic in this country.

    This book is in the sad/scary, but oh, so true category. Some of the shots may make you feel a little bad, but most are just laughable "what the heck" moments. Seriously, how can people not know their butts are showing THAT MUCH? ;) This book is in the sad/scary, but oh, so true category.

    okay, so it is mostly pictures, but there are words, poignant tales of the depths of human abberation and misbehavior. There is clearly something wrong with my Wal-Mart, it is not this entertaining. One nice feature of this book is that I don't recall seeing most of these pictures before. okay, so it is mostly pictures, but there are words, poignant tales of the depths of human abberation and misbehavior.

    Meh. Not great, but mildly amusing. As to be expected from a collection of "Walmart people" pictures. The captions were kinda funny, but I didn't find the photos all that shocking. Most were simply overweight people wearing too-small clothes. Or possibly, I'm just too used to seeing oddballs. Meh. Not great, but mildly amusing.
