Hi. I see you’re reading the back of my book. This tells me that you either: A) are hoping to find a brief summary of what to expect from a how-to book by Sterling Archer, the world’s greatest secret agent, or B) don’t know how books work. If your answer was “A,” your best bet is probably the table of contents, which is where you’ll find the “contents” of this book listed in a convenient, easy-to-read “table” format. So maybe go check that out for a minute and then come back here. I’ll wait. . . . Pretty cool, right? What other book will teach you how to dress properly and how to drive an elephant? How to field strip an AK-47 and how to haggle with a Thai prostitute—in her native tongue? How to pilot an airboat and how to make about a million delicious cocktails, including a Molotov one? How to kill a guy and how to prepare a fabulous brunch? Plus how to do tons of other stuff that I forgot, but that is nonetheless probably in this book (which, to be honest, I really only kinda skimmed). So if you want to learn more about how to be more—or at all—like Sterling Archer, the world’s greatest secret agent, quit smearing your greasy fingerprints all over this book and buy it. For one thing, I really need the royalties. For another thing, the last time I checked, this wasn’t a damn library. (Note: If your answer was “B,” this probably isn’t the book you want to start with.)

    Not only do I love the awesome show, but I also love the awesome book! It's hilarious. I would give it 10 stars if I could.
  • Could be great

    I enjoed this book and I am glad I have it, BUT I think this book is best served as an audiobook. I find the dialouge of Archer to be extremely funny but I think a crucial aspect of the hilarity is in the way H. Jon Benjamin voices Archer. Would get it? At this price point, yes. At the full price? Eh.
  • Great book

    Reading this was just like watching the show. A great way to get a dose of archer between seasons. If you love the show you'll love this book.

    I can't tell you how many times I laughed out loud. I love the show, and the style in which the book is written just screams Archer. I will definitely read it again, only next time, it will be with a Martini in hand.
  • Great!

  • Loved it.

    It is so well written in the style of Sterling himself that its very easy to believe that he is a real person. The book seemed a little short for me. Could have had AT LEAST another 30-40 pages (since I'm on my iPhone I don't know how many pages the physical book has) could do with a LOT more drawings, pictures, sketches etc., I rating it 4 star which I feel is leaning on the generous side. Good, but by no means amazing.
  • Not interesting or funny

    By Staynavytom
    The show is much better than the book.
  • Splendid
