Wilson also discusses when to bring in parents as referees and when not to. These tidbits are especially helpful as a parent so I can discern when someone is trying to get out of trouble or get someone into trouble. It will make parents better managers of sibling relationships.
This book is a fun read and brought back sibling warfare memories. I just can't let it fall into the hands of my four- and six-year olds. They don't need any more ideas on how to get on each others nerves!
Sample Text: The Sacred Vow of Bro-Jitsu [pp. 9-10]
I promise I will never hit my sibling in the face, even if (s)he always breaks y stuff and gets away with it, too.
I will strive to physically and mentally torture my siblings to make them stronger, better people. But I will do my best to never injure or scar them permanently.
I will never team up with outsiders against my sibling because we are joined by an unbreakable bond of kinship. Plus, I will be in a lot of trouble with Mom if anything ever happens to my sibling.
I will continue to refine and improve the techniques of Bro-Jitsu long after reaching adulthood so that my siblings will never grow soft--and so that they will never forget how freaking awesome I am and how much they totally suck.
Bro-Jitsu covers all areas of sibling smack down. Mostly in the house, but also in the car, school yard, pool and other areas siblings or friends will be around each other. Both offensive and defensive areas are covered as well as a few psychological tricks in the final section. How to use the referee (parent) to your advantage is covered as well.
All the classic moves everyone grew up with are in here. Belly buster, blanket mutilation, booger finger, candy bar in the swimming pool, dead arm, fake crying, noogie, nipple cripple, pink belly, python leg squeeze, wedgie, wet willy and everything else you remember (or have tried to forget), they're all here.
Daniel H Wilson has some other brilliant books out there as well. Where's My Jetpack?: A Guide to the Amazing Science Fiction Future that Never Arrived and How To Survive a Robot Uprising: Tips on Defending Yourself Against the Coming Rebellion are my favourites.
26 Techniques to Gain Family Domination
To be released by BloomsburyUSA April 13, 2010
The world's most (okay, only# comprehensive guide to sibling torment.
Kung Fu. Tae Know Do. Karate. All ancient martial arts that have been around for thousands of years. But there's only one that's been studied by billions of brothers and sisters the world over. We're talking about Bro-Jitsu.
Defensive, and Psychological moves, Bro-Jitsu is a tongue-in-cheek encyclopedia of sibling smackdown, from how to most effectively include pro-wrestling moves in a standard bout to executing a full-body defensive fish wiggle, which will get you out of just about any choke hole or tackle. Throughout the book, diagrams and illustrations of the moves help you in your quest toward Bro-Master status. #book blurb)
I've honestly got to say, this is the most hilarious book I have read in a while. Actual tears came out of my eyes. I requested a review copy of this book expecting a little novelty book I could review and give to my younger cousins afterward, but now I DON'T WANT TO GIVE IT AWAY! Daniel H. Wilson has an absolutely perfect way of writing to bring out exactly how funny each of these moves is, and I can guarantee that whether or not you have siblings you will get major dejavu reading this. My mother adores it as well. We're waiting on the book to come out so that we can order a bunch of gift copies. I don't think anyone could possibly NOT like this book. I highly recommend it to everyone ages 6-66! I'm going to include a couple of excerpts to give you a small taste of how wonderful this book really is. Enjoy!Read more ›
