Review and Giveaway: Street Boners (3 Winners!) (CLOSED)

Through my membership with The Product Review Place, I was given an opportunity to review a hilarious, off-the-wall book: "Street Boners" by Gavin McInnes. Yes, "Street Boners" is the name of this book. Don't worry, it's not quite as risque as the title may make it sound. But while this review is suitable for all ages, I must note right off the bat that this book is not safe for work (or children). There are profanities and inappropriate photos, which makes this book best suited to parents who need a break from kiddie stories (or any mature individual who wants a good laugh!).


Street Boners is all about the bold fashion statements that have been spotted on the streets. Every page has photos of fashion mishaps and triumphs, along with a rating of one to ten kittens. Yep, kittens. The fewer kittens, the worse the outfit. I have no idea why they chose to use kittens in their rating system, but I like it - this quirky choice fits in well with the whole feel of the book. Besides, who doesn't love kittens, am I right?

The guy in neon spandex gets just two kittens. Are you afraid to see the guy who only gets one kitten?

I've had such a great time flipping through the pages of this book. It's so interesting to see the crazy outfits that some people pick out for themselves and wonder what on earth was going through their heads as they stood in front of the mirror that morning. I love that this book includes a brief description of each outfit, because it helps put them into perspective, and also because the descriptions themselves are often just as funny as the outfits in question! As an added bonus, also included throughout the book are commentaries by well-known comedians and celebrities, including Chloe Sevigny, Debbie Harry, Fred Armisen, and Tim & Eric. The only thing I really don't like about this book is that it seems to focus way too much on the author drooling over pictures of "hot" girls - we get it, McInnes, you are attracted to stereotypical, scantily-clad women. Other than that, though, it's a fun book to relax with, and you will definitely get some giggles out of it.

Yep. This is what a one-kitten rating looks like. Yikes.

It's also worth noting that this book is physically well-constructed. The pages are thick and glossy, with rich color photographs on every page. Thanks to this book's sturdy binding, I haven't had any problem whatsoever with pages falling out, as I have experienced with certain other books in the past. The book is a nice and big (but not too big), and it's the perfect size for displaying on the coffee table (if you're bold!).

Book to pencil size comparison.

Overall, I love this book! It has made me laugh out loud numerous times, and it's a lot of fun to flip through its pages and have a good chuckle. I'd recommend it to anyone who is not easily offended!

Buy It!
You can purchase Street Boners on Amazon.com for a suggested retail price of $18.99 (however, as of this post, it's on sale for just $12.91! Score!).

Win It!
I am pleased to announce that 3 (count 'em, THREE!) lucky US or Canadian winners will receive their very own copy of Street Boners! (No PO boxes, please.)
