Review #258: The Book of Moe- Matt Groening

Title: The Book of Moe
Author: Matt Groening
Format: Hardcover
Pages: 96
Rating: 4/5 Stars
Summary: Moe Szyslak, pug-ugly purveyor at the local waterin' hole, has done it all — from takin' his licks in the boxing ring to performin' backroom surgery. Get to know the man behind the apron strings, the misunderstood mixologist with the gold-plated heart, as he dispenses advice to drunks like it was Duff on draft, recommends some of his signature (and watered down) drinks like the Moe-jito, tries out a pick-up line or two, dreams of actually getting a date, dishes a little on his acting career, and counts his blessings (like babysittin' Maggie Simpson) that make life worth livin' for at least one more day.
Review: I enjoyed this book. It was very entertaining. I gained lots of valuable knowledge from this book lol. I didn't realize before how utterly obsessed Moe is with Maggie, it's rather creepy actually. I liked getting a different view of Moe, especially how good he is when he is with Maggie.
