    A pants-wettingly funny collection of intelligent cartoons.Here's my favorite:

    The second SMBC collection in the Humble Bundle is just as great as the first. Now I just have to find the time to sit down and read all the comics on his website. This may take a while.

    This is the second collection of web comics which became fairly well-known. Each strip is standalone with topics ranging from relationships to politics to astronomy. Not all of the comics are of the same quality, some of them are funny, and some just raise interesting questions, while others somewhat incomprehensible.

Each strip is standalone with topics ranging from relationships to politics to astronomy. Not all of the comics are of the same quality, some of them are funny, and some just raise interesting questions, while others somewhat incomprehensible. Unlike the first collection, Save Yourself, Mammal!: A Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal Collection where the majority of comics consisted of a single frame, the most part of these consist of at least 5 or more ones. They also deal with more philosophical issues and while all are interesting, not all of them are funny and I found several to be outright depressing. I do not regret purchasing of the book and reading it, but I am not sure whether I ever reread it again: 3 stars.

    In varying parts irreverent, intellectual, and psychologically twisted, these strips from SMBC are often brilliant, frequently mordant, and usually damned funny. Of course, with any sort of comic strip, your mileage would wildly vary, but, having saved a bunch of these to disk as I read them, it's cool to get them in bound (and oversized) form.

    A collection of comics previously published on the web. Mostly with themes of science, economics and anti-religion in which I had no interest nor found amusing. There are some sex and philosophical themed ones that were ok. I laughed at one. Not my cup of tea.

    A fun collection of comics, that is a very quick read. If you enjoy the website, you will like this too. As any comic, there a some duds, but a lot of great ones make up for it.

    This collection of Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal has some great strips (the Elements take on Who's on First is a particular favorite), and some insightful (and usually depressing, though still funny) moments. Some of the jokes will go over reader's heads (there were several I didn't get), but it's got a lot more hits than misses, and when it connects, it does so thoroughly. Definitely not child-friendly, though.

Like the father's protracted thought-process on whether or not to tell a child their dog is going to doggy heaven...

    As with the first collection, Save Yourself, Mammal!: A Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal Collection, I read this book on my phone but did not quite enjoy it as much. While topics still ranged from science, politics and economics to religion and relationships, I found the humour less consistent. Some strips raised interesting questions, but if you are looking to read some Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal and have not checked out Save Yourself Mammal, rather go do that.

    A couple of really golden ones in this one as well, but in the end, not enough extra content over online archives (in fact, there's none), to warrant a rave.Really, ebook webcomic collections are kinda pointless, since you can get the same for free online in an easier to read format, anyway.

    I picked up this book and the first book in a HumbleBundle pack. If you're not aware of HumbleBundle, google it and then go buy. They are simply AMAZING.Anyhow, before HB, I'd never heard of SMBC. I wish I had, though. His comics are irreverent and topical - perfect for me. Although some people might get a bit uncomfortable at the sometimes-sacrilgious tone of his work, I find it amusing, as I've never been one to take offense at people taking a light-hearted swipe at the seriousness I picked up this book and the first book in a HumbleBundle pack.

    If asked what the best web comic ever is, I'd be hard pressed to pick between SMBC and XKCD. Fortunately we live in a world where both exist. SMBC acts like XKCDs slightly unstable and perverted cousin. Great intelligent humor, mixed in with fart and dick jokes.

    My favorite webcomic and a daily must-read. Incredible balance of insightful science and logic and humor. Only drawback of this collection is that I have read all the strips already. They still hold up.
  • Richard Wright
    January 1, 1970
    Some longer strips here than the previous 'Save Yourself, Mammal!', perhaps leading to less laugh out loud moments and more probing social comment. In general though, still smart, still funny, still ahead of the game when it comes to short form comic strip humour.

    I love Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal in its webcomic form, and this is a nice collection. My purchase of the book was mainly a way to support Zach Weiner economically. Hopefully, he will continue the webcomic and other projects for a very long time!

    It's unfortunate, but these read much better on the actual site, plus there's an extra gag for many of these strips in the site- think of xkcd's mouseover text but with images. So I've got to agree with other reviewers: great content but I see no real reason for this ebook to exist.

    Per the same review of Zach Weiner's other book - Another book of random comics, but this one held less hilarity for me. Its got quite a few quick comments that made me chuckle, but by in large i just shook my head at the majority

    Not quite as funny as the first collection, but still a great addition to the series.

    Same as the last - the ones with math, nerds, and children were the best. The ones with philosophy were less enjoyable to me.

    Not as funny as Save Yourself Mammals, but still a great collection. I strongly believe Weiner's single panels are much funnier than his multipanels.

    The second collection of these webcomics wrapped into one package. Like Save Yourself Mammal, it's also filled with amusing side jokes and ways to explore the book.

    As good as the first one. The "Choose your own adventure" was better than the one in the first book, now introducing redirections.The jokes were funny but I still miss the red button hover.

    Just gotta love the way science, politics and humanity comes together in a mix of comics with a pH way above 7.Having said that, be prepared to be (slightly to severely) offended.

    Economist pickup lines: "Hey baby, if I told you you had a beautiful body, would it improve your self esteem to a threshold at which you'd have no interest in me?"
