"Field Guide to Chicks of the United States by Joe Bovino is a hilarious look into the women of the USA. If you like people watching and commenting I can say you need to check this book out today. You and your friends will want to read this together for the most laughs …
My husband and I enjoyed this book. For those who don’t find this hilarious feel free to seek your comedy somewhere else."

"The book to end all books."

"I won this from Goodreads.com. This is a seriously funny although fairly spot on kind of book. It is very straight forward and not for those who take offense to stereotypes. Yes even a girl like me was represented almost to a tee. I am sending it next to my brother so he can pick and choose his next girlfriend a little more carefully next time and with a lot more knowledge behind him....."

“Great gift for ANYONE: Enjoyed the book so much I've been bought it for the embassy Marine guards here in Bangkok to help them 'transition' to the states. ANY guy is a rock star in Thailand, so I want them to have a tactical advantage. Great product Joe."
Colleen Schilinski rated it 5 of 5 stars – Goodreads.com
“This was a great book. It's funny and all my guy friends want to borrow it. I'll have to put my information on the inside of this book, so I get it back. It is a must read for anyone, because Joe Bovino did a great job telling us the way it is about woman in different city's all across the United States. I even have quite a few pages marked for future references, and to show certain men in my life. This is definitely a GOODREAD for me.”

"I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE the book!!! Hilarious! It's been a while since I've read something that comical ... I'm a critical person and I honestly thought it was going to be like every other book out there on women. Clearly, a well-researched product."
Baniva - 5.0 out of 5 stars – Amazon.com
"I’m gay and I love it! This book is so funny, I met Joe at an event and he told me about his masterpiece. I was a little hesitant at first but I decided to go ahead and buy one! It is painfully accurate as I was able to match up some characteristics of my girlfriends to their cartoon counterparts. It's the most genius thing ever. Loved it so much I bought another for a friend who I consider a connoisseur of the "female species"!"

“If there were a Pulitzer Prize for originality and humor, this book would be a slam dunk winner. Creative format, entertaining yet educational text, and fantastic illustrations are synthesized to perfection. Whether it's "How-to", "Has-been", or "Wish-I-could", this book is the bible for the Chickspotter in all of us - including females who should keep an eye on the competition."

"Recently picked up "Field Guide to Chicks of the United States" ...I had to see what all the buzz was about and I'm glad I did! I began reading and could not stop laughing -a lot of the "species" descriptions were on the money! I shared some of the profiles with my husband and he is pressing me to finish the book so that he can enjoy it for himself as well. If you’re looking for a light hearted, humorous, easy read about various types of women in the US, this book is for you! Well done!"

"I wish I could give this book more than 5 stars. It is the funniest thing I've read in a long time, and I'm very grateful to have gotten my copy for free through the Good Reads first-reads giveaway.
Bovino has managed to creatively and thoroughly create a well-researched and colorfully written (and drawn) guide to ALL of the women that the United States have to offer. At first I was skeptical that anyone could pull this off, seeing that people are individuals and I do not support stereotypes...
With that being said I must admit that the writing and observations are spot on! Feminists may take offense to this book, but I recommend it to EVERY man in America.
It may save you from getting involved with a crazy woman, wasting time on a lost cause, or just save you from boredom. It's a great conversation piece to have around the house and show company, and as you read it you'll notice similarities between the archetypes Bovine has illustrated and the real women in your life. I enjoyed this book a lot. I crack it open whenever I need a good laugh, and I am sure you'll love it too."

"I thought after 16 years working at the Playboy Mansion, I knew everything about women! Joe has definitely done his research and his book has even taught me a thing or two! Proof that not all women are alike!"
Luv Lotus (California) 5.0 out of 5 stars – Amazon.com, June 17, 2014
"Joe Bovino took a lot of heat from feminists for objectifying racial types. I think this book is ADORABLE. It makes you realize all the delicious variety of us women. I think Joe just LOVES all kinds of women and he celebrates them in this book. The illustrations are adorable. It's a FUN read. And it opens you to the richness of looking outside your own tribe to see that there's a richness of opportunities to date all kinds of amazing women."
James M. Starnes (ANNAPOLIS, MD, US) 5.0 out of 5 stars – Amazon.com
"Fun fun read … I have had over 200 match.com dates .... -And let me tell you, Joe is spot on with his observations about the types of chicks that are wandering around our great country!"

"Absolutely Fabulous!!! Such a fun book ... So I get why the guys might like it but didn't realize how much fun it would be for us chicks too!!!! Joe ... so creative
and well-written. Doing the research for this book must have been the WORST job you've ever had!!! LOL. Congrats on the amazon book launch.... I hope the world realizes how much fun this book would be to give as a gift this holiday season. It's a book that is at its best when shared with friends!! Lots of laughs..."
Caiti rated it 4 of 5 stars – Goodreads.com
"This book was hilarious. It's not for the easily offended, but if you have a sense of humor check it out. It's written in the same format as bird watching books, which provide in depth descriptions of species, etc. The author of this book uses hilarious often local stereotypes to describe just about every flavor of female in the country. I can't wait for this book to be more widely read so everyone knows what I'm talking about when I use the author's hilarious classifications to describe people I meet in everyday life. I definitely recommend this book if you are not easily offended and need a side splitting laugh."

“My book finally got published! ... Good job, Joe (Bovino). I couldn't resist picking it up in a men’s store at MGM Grand in Vegas.”

"I thought this book was really funny. A bit sexist, well a lot sexist, but still funny. If you are a feminist, then don't even bother with it. Kind of like a grown up version of Mad Magazine. Kind of potty mouth. But if you have a sense of humor then it's fun. My husband stole it from me and took it to work. They have been passing it around at work laughing at it."
Braden Traub 5.0 out of 5 stars – Amazon.com
"It’s hard to do justice to a book such as "field guide to chicks" in a short amazon review, but that's the nature of a book that has so many things going for it. Not only did I find myself cracking up on just about every turn of the page, but after my laughing fits settled down I found myself coming to the realization that the material in the book is actually very accurate despite it also being absolutely hilarious!
I'll be frank here - every American man should have this book proudly displayed on his coffee table. I know that I'll be handing out several of these this Christmas and I highly recommend everyone do the same. Do NOT miss this book."
Yolanda Mirzaian 5.0 out of 5 stars, Amazon.com, May 11, 2014
"Great Job Mr. Bovino! I should really thank you … because I look at this book as an educational tool for all the gentlemen out there who approach women from different background & ethnicities …
This continent is a melting pot and the society is suffering from diversity. There are so many accomplished men and women out there who have already said "Goodbye" to dating world due to lack of time, knowledge, misunderstandings and disappointments. Unfortunately, they have decided to stay single for the rest of their life only because they don't know where to find the right match and you've offered them the perfect tool to narrow down their options. This is "genius" and you have a "Beautiful

"Bravo to the Author and Illustrator!!! After really getting into this new book, I realized immediately the research, coordination, orchestration and overall effort it must have taken to bring it to the level it has achieved! BRAVO!!! Well freakin' done - I am so diggin' this book!
For anyone that is curious about it, let me just say you will not be disappointed - pure entertainment and at the same time, we can all learn a little something ... you'll know what I mean when you read it!!!"

"I like chicks now! Bovino breaks it all down for you in a very easy to read format. The female demographic is broken down into realistic stereotypes according to the geographic location and culture of the female population. It’s a great way to understand and appreciate the diverse array of women in our country."
Owen Carver "Anjudan" (Las Vegas, NV) 5.0 out of 5 stars, Amazon.com
"You’ll laugh out loud again and again! It's not often that a book as candid, honest, and unflinching as the Field Guide to CHICKS of the United States can be at the same time so hilarious and insightful. The real power of this book is lies in its ability to be both a thoroughly researched academic document able to function as a constant reference for understanding the female species AND also an hysterical and shameless men's guidebook to getting laid …
From any angle this book is valuable, at least as an unabashed contemporary documentation of the most highly visible and (arguably) desired segment of our diverse US population. For whichever reason, as a guy or a girl, buy this book. As I've experienced firsthand again and again, everyone you show it to will smile big and thank you for sharing it. People can't put it down and everyone has 'someone' they have to hunt down and find in the book."
E.M's Eccentric. Luxurious. Curious.
"Field Guide to Chicks of the United States is something that arrived for me a month or so back and I have since passed around to many friends for their own review.
Quite a funny book indeed, it is one of the better books to keep beside the toilet in the bathroom for leisure reading whilst in a still moment.
Here is a review from a friend of mine: “The accuracy only adds to its hilarious nature. Once you run across a “species” from your past, you will know exactly what I
mean. A top-10 read for anyone with wondering eyes. Some women, with a keen sense of humor of course, may like this read more than men (as a laugh, or to spy on the competition). Otherwise boys, read on the toilet, and keep out of sight to not offend sensitive types. And remember, this is a guide. No literature should be heeded word for word. Lastly, enjoy……”
It was quite a hilarious read all in all for myself as well. What makes it most enjoyable is the truth that underlies the stereotype."
Ashley Knowles 5.0 out of 5 stars – Amazon.com
"What a great book …!!! … It made me laugh, and made me snicker, and it made me aware that not all women were created equal...lol. This book should also not so much be seen as the bible of women, but more of an activity book to be shared with friends on the traits of women across the United States through the adventures of one man's journey. Mr. Bovino gives us a virtual tour of the fairer sex and we are given the treat of his experiences. Thanks Joe! …
This book definitely has my seal of approval, and I recommend it to anyone with an open mind and a sense of humor...you will not be disappointed!"
