It's not easy being a Super Hero when you've got a steady job to hold down and girlfriend problems to deal with. Somehow, Peter Parker (aka Spider-Man) manages to do it while regularly saving New York City from a rogues' gallery of super villains. In The World According to Spider-Man, the wisecracking hero spills the beans on how he balances his two lives and manages to keep his trademark sense of humour, even while he's tangling with Doc Ock or the Green Goblin. The book comes with a wealth of incredible inserts, including clippings from the Daily Bugle, snapshots taken by Spidey on his adventures, a letter from Oscorp, a note from Mary Jane Watson, a page from Uncle Ben's diary, schematics showing how the web-shooters work, and much, much more

Review quote

"Written in Spidey's wise-cracking style, this gift book offers advice on matters like webslinging and costume care. Very light-hearted, with plenty of poking fun." SFX "A a great read for the young comic/film buff wanting to know more about how these characters fit into the Marvel universe. Good fun." SFF World "A magnificent book that combines great writing, artwork and humor alongside a great presentation to really bring the Spider-Man character to life. It was really neat to see the world through the eyes of a superhero and the pop-up inserts really added that extra touch to bring the entire experience together." BioGamer Girl "This book is genuinely chuckle-out-loud funny at times. The style is zany and irreverent, and the gags consistently hit the mark...The all-new artwork is top-notch and supports the jokes with a deceptive ease...The 'extras' are great fun too. They further enhance the impression of quality and attention to detail that pervades this book." "Longtime comic book fans will recognize some of the references, while newbie readers will laugh at the craziness of it all...I highly recommend this book for any fan of the webcrawler, ages 6 and up."
