It's one of these reads where you can open to any page and begin reading.It circulated in my office and it had everyone laughing and telling their own bad experiences and thinking perhaps they'd have done better if they had the advice the 3 authors offer very fre What can say about this book?
The first handbook has sold more than 2 million copies since it was published in November of 1999, and the series that followed has been equally popular.I imagine that you’re probably as likely to have a New York Times bestseller as you are to be struck by lightning,” Dave says.Growing up watching action movies, he’d always vaguely wondered, Could you really do that?In 2002, the world received a gift in To think, I almost missed out on knowing that “many monsters are afraid of the color green,” that skills for dealing with a stray dog are nearly the same as skills for dealing with a stray exchange student, and that while “couples frequently disagree over whether to bribe children,” kids are “almost always…in favor of it.” I busted out laughing when I saw the section titled “How to Recapitate a Doll.” Recapitate, now that’s a great word. Another fantastic section is “How to Discipline an Imaginary Friend.” Funny, funny, funny!I don’t know if it’s standard English, but I will be using it from now on. I like the idea of telling a kid that if s/he is going to play with an imaginary friend, “they both need to be on good behavior and are both responsible for any broken vases, stolen cookies, or messes.” Also fantastic is the idea of creating “activities to keep the imaginary friend out of trouble,” such as sending him/her to “(imaginary) music lessons,” “(imaginary) summer camp,” or “(imaginary) boarding school.” I laughed so hard when I read all of that. The drawings that go along with how not to use a stroller (“as a shopping cart, as a sidecar, as a scooter/skateboard, when running with the bulls in Pamplona) were fantastic.
