"Give your non-nerd friends a fully caffeinated taste of your world with a collection of User Friendly comic strips by J.D. 'Illiad' Frazer."
--Michelle Delio, Wired News, December 2004

"The book has a great feel; many of Frazer's strips go on for a couple of pages, providing lots of space to get into the meat of his subjects and observations. For those who have yet to be initiated into the the inner sanctum of geek-dom, the book will give you some genuinely funny insights into the working minds of all those programmers, software & hardware engineers and related types out there, as well as a satirical look at ISPs and IT departments behind the scenes. Highly recommended."

Reviews from previous User Friendly compilations:

"You have to be a geek to really appreciate the humor, but even beginner geeks will love it."
--Harry Babad, The Finder; The Newsletter of the Mid-Columbia Macintosh User Group, June 2002

"The tech world is a strange place. Who says it can't be funny too? Scott Adams' popular Dilbert comic strip has proven that there is a wealth of humor to be mined from technology and techies alike. But for many techies, Dilbert and its kin only scratch the surface, dealing as much with office politics as with the life of techies. The 'User Friendly' comic strip goes deeper... the Doonesbury for techies. The drawing style is crude--Illiad is no Michelangelo--but the jokes are good and often clever, and besides, I'd much rather read a cartoon that is genuinely inventive and amusing than well-drawn. Give me 'User Friendly' over Family Circus or Cathy any day. Root of All Evil is pretty much guaranteed to bring a smile to any techie-types you might know."
--Keith Schengili-Roberts, Computer Paper, April 2002

"...side-splittingly funny? a breath of originality, guaranteed hilarious, and absolutely, positively, not to be missed. Highly, wholeheartedly, enthusiastically recommended.?
--James Cox, Midwest Book Review, November 2001

"Rating 9. If you have the previous 'User Friendly' books, this is a no-brainer purchase. If you don't have them, you might want to get the other two books before purchasing this one. If you've never viewed 'User Friendly', view a few strips online or leaf through the other books first. If you're like most geeks, you'll find you'll want as much 'User Friendly' as you can get!"
--Craig Maloney, slashdot.com, November 2001

"Gifts for the holidays, computing gifts for your favorite scientist (or yourself). After the Sept 11 attacks, a good place to start is with a little humor. I recommend 'The Root of All Evil,' 'The Root of All Evil' by Illiad."
--John Joyce, PhD, Scientific Computing and Instrumentation, November 2001

"Make sure you leave this review lying around, so that people can buy it for you for Christmas. In fact, don't take a chance--just ask for it! There is little enough humor around at the moment, and when computers figure in it, it is usually silly, misinformed or embarrassingly naïve...hit! More witty, wise observations on the world of computers."
--Computer Shopper, January 2002
