I absolutely love the description on the back of the book, yes everybody does lie. This book provides a plethora of options for getting out of just about anything or getting yourself in more trouble (depending on how good your delivery is).
Sure, some of the one-liners are humorous, but not nearly so much as I had hoped. Still, the "Lines for All Occasions" series does make an interesting coffee table set. I've found that people are far more likely to pick one of these up and flip through it than they will other books.
