Funny Amazon Customer Book Reviews

Looking for some joke Amazon reviews?  

Check out what the customers have to say about these two weird books.Book cover of Outlook for Wood Toilet Seats in China

From the author, “In order to estimate the latent demand for wood toilet seats across the regions and cites of Greater China, I used a multi-stage approach.” 

When I hear the terms “multi-stage approach” and “wood toilet seats” in the same sentence, my interest is piqued.

But it gets better.

“In particular, there is an assumption governing the shape and type of aggregate latent demand functions.”

When it comes to wood toilet seats “aggregate latent demand functions”  sounds pretty serious.  And it is!  

I you live in China, you may not have realized the magnitude of your latent demand or the likelihood that YOU may soon get a Wooden Toilet Seat!
