Not at all unabridged
Maybe I missed something but this claims to be unabridged. I bought the audiobook here and bought the actual print book as a gift and when I compared them I found that the audio version is missing a substantial amount of material. For a comparison I checked the number of entries for Y for both versions. In the print version: 22. In the audio: 2. I doubt the audio version has more than 1/5 of the content of the print version. I wouldn't be so annoyed if it wasn't for the fact that they both cost the same.
As for the content, it's pretty good but not as great as Our Dumb World or as most of the online content. It's got the weirdness you'd expect but the humor is kind of lacking.

I really enjoyed this book. I could not stop laughing, it is written in typical Onion fashion. If you are familiar with the tone of the Onion and its non seriousness and sarcasm than you already know what to expect. Well worth the money (or credit.)
