"Best Book Ever"
5 stars"

Got this for Christmas, best present! Had the whole table in tears of laughter. Takes a tongue in cheek look at New Zealand, no place is safe from ridicule. Sure to offend some people, and have others in stitches of laughter.


Based on the hugely popular Facebook page ‘Shit Towns of New Zealand’, this book describes New Zealand's towns and suburbs from the affluent to the effluent, the rural to the urinal, profiling all the best places not to visit, or heaven forbid, live.

Slagging off our towns is as much a national pastime as binge drinking and ball sports. Ever since a Dutch bloke in a sailboat did a drive-by and claimed to have discovered the place, New Zealanders have revelled in taking the mickey.

The towns and cities reviewed here have been carefully selected using an exacting set of scientific criteria, combined with extensive field research and a healthy sense of humour.
