I think that this book is suitable for ages 8+.
I enjoyed the book very much, it made me laugh a lot.

I downloaded a sample of the book to show my daughter and all you get is 11 pages of the author, publishing information and then the contents of the book. I thought a sample was of the book not the rubbish at the beginning of it which no one reads so why add it to a sample. I have this book In storage but I wanted to show my daughter what I read at her age can't do that now. I spoke with iTunes who said that's it's up to the publisher what sample they give not Apple/iTunes themselves. Please change the sample you might get more downloads of it
