Editorial Reviews

Review

“When looking for wisdom on big questions, I turn to either the Bible or Red Green.
Ken Gallinger, Ethically Speaking columnist, Toronto Star

"[H]ilarious, satirical and smart. . . .Some of the advice--such as [Smith's] tips on surviving marriage--is wiser and more honest than anything you'll read in a real so-called self-help book."
The Globe and Mail

"Thankfully . . . Steve Smith is as crafty with words as he is with DIY home renovations."
Toronto Life

"For those suffering from Possum Lodge withdrawal--fear not, because Red's back and he's written the ultimate do-it-yourself and self-help manual all rolled into one."
— Canoe.ca

About the Author

RED GREEN is the leader of Possum Lodge, Chapter 11, a northern Ontario eyesore. He is friendly, inventive, cheap and as honest as the day is long, which means he's the least honest on December 21. When he works on his handyman projects, Red is not stupid, he's impatient. So he uses duct tape to "buy time." Red Green is the star of The Red Green Show, which had first runs in Canada and the US from 1991 until 2006, making it the longest running live-action scripted comedy in the world. It continues to be enormously popular in reruns here and in the States. Red Green is the creation of Canadian comedian and writer Steve Smith.

Artist Red Green has previously illustrated his own poetry books, which he kept carefully hidden until it was agreed he could do the illustrations for this book. Photographer Red Green's discovery that a professional might charge upwards of a hundred dollars led him to the decision to take the damn pictures in this book himself.

A great read and one that deserves to be picked up and put back in the bathroom time and time again.

The sections in the book are short and make it easy to read.

I just bought this book for my father who is a big Red Green fan as well as I. It arrived last night and I took it out of the box and just randomly opened it up and began reading. I was laughing so hard I was crying. Granted I am a female and may have a little different perspective than the average male reader but if you are a fan of Red Green it is the same thing you are used to just put down on paper. The sections in the book are short and make it easy to read. I think I am going to have to add this to my Christmas list now!

I'm not handsome, but the women will find me handy now thanx to Red! This book is so funny I'm laughing so hard on every page; it's taking forever to read, but that's ok. That means I can laugh more over a longer period of time. EVERYBODY should get this book. It's a riot and a book that will really make your day, or month, or year. Whatever that means.

I'm profoundly overwhelmed. To put it another way, I'm speechless. And yes, it doesn't take much to overwhelm me.

I got this book after years of watching Red Green on television, and it did not disappoint. The book is more a collection of short essays, most only a page or two long, on a variety of subjects. Topics include how do you know if your wife is mad at you, how to build an airplane (and why you shouldn't), how to see UFOs by eating wild mushrooms and other many others. I greatly enjoyed the book and recommend it to other Red Green fans.

A step-by-step guide at how to do nothing... I mean everything. Packed full of ideas to help you succeed at failure, this book is a laugh from page one. Your marriage and pocket book will be better off for reading How To Do Everything, and if they're not, be thankful it didn't destroy your pocket book. If for no other reason, pick up this book and give it a go to find out how to be a better Renaissance Man by learning from another mans example, and then never make the same mistakes.

I got this as a gift for my spouse who is a member of the Possum Lodge. He reads in bed and chuckles all the way through this and reads me selections. The book is a hoot! Any Red Green fan, and others as well, will enjoy it.

This book lives up to it's title in more ways than one. The amuseing way he explains how to do everything is a treat to the reader, interspersed with good advice on how to do many difficult little jobs( and not be permanently maimed in the process).

This is a perfect gift for the man who has everything. It is hilarious and makes you think at the same time.
