Forget everything you may have read or heard about duct tape. Compiled from a lifetime's obsession, The Jumbo Duct Tape Book is a magnum opus of nuttiness. If you duct tape you hands to the front and back covers of this book, you'll find it almost impossible to put down!
About the Author
More About the Author
Then, the Duct Tape Books happened (the complete story is at http://www.ducttapeguys.com/jimntim). This is where Tim met his friend, Tony Dierckins, Duct Tape Book one editor and subsequent Duct Tape Book co-author. With Tony, Tim continued the Duct Tape book genre and delved into other humor topics such as, "How To Get Rid of a Telemarketer," "When I'm an Old Man, I'll Wear Mixed Plaids," "the WD-40 Book" and "The Habits of Seven Highly Annoyiing People." And with Joey Green, "The Bubble Wrap Book" and "The Warning Label Book."
The Duct Tape Book genre introduced what Tim calls "Intelligent Stupidity" - which he and his co-Duct Tape Guy, Jim Berg, have woven into a popular stand-up comedy act which has toured throughout North America, England and Germany (the Germans didn't get it). They have been seen frequently on a variety of television shows from TBS's "Man Made Movie" to "The History Channel" dispensing the history of duct tape. Now with seven books and ten Page-A-Day Calendars in their Duct Tape Trilogy, their "breathtakingly stupid" writing career documenting the myriad uses of duct tape continues without any signs of stopping.
Tim's solo humor writing career includes "The Practical Joker's Handbook," "The Beanie Basher's Handbook" and "99 bottles of Beer on the Wall - the complete lyrics" (AM Universal, fall 2006).
Weary of many people asking Tim how to get published, Tim launched http://www.monkeymarketing.com to dispense his usual advise. He has future plans of writing a book detailing his free and cheap (although bestsellingly effective) book marketing ideas.
Tim is 30-years into a happy marriage to his "best friend" and constant source of critique and encouragement. They have two grown kids - a daughter who's a wonderful music teacher and incredible jazz singer, and a son who's an amazingly prolific and thoughtful writer and also a skilled jazz drummer.
Keen on any creative endeavor, Tim has recently taken up fine art. His online gallery may be viewed at http://www.octanecreative.com/art.

Here are some examples of some pages: "Muzzle your mutt" with a graphic of duct tape around a dogs nose and mouth. Ha ha? Use a wadded up piece of duct tape in place of a silver tooth filling. Ha ha. Duct tape your telephone hand set down so you won't be inclined to answer the phone during the dinner hour when a telemarketer calls? Ha ha.
My 12 year old is funnier than these guys. Now I've wasted my 8 bucks and I'm still looking to find a decent book about duct tape. Don't make the same mistake I made- save your money.
To put it quite frankly, this is a book written by idiots for idiots. If you're the type who thought those old Dorf on Golf videos staring Tim Conway were a hoot, then this might be your cup of tea. If Hee Haw and the Red Green Show strike you as high-brow entertainment, then by all means order your copy right now. And what about my calendar? After about a week of this crap I started to feel having it displayed in my office might in fact sully my reputation. It's now at home sitting upside down beside the phone for use as a tear-off note pad.
Bought 2 other duct tape books - yes my boys are into making duct tape projects form Amazon and they were both worth buying this one however is NOT.
Inside this fun little book is page after page of ways to use your roll of duct tape that I am sure you never thought of. Seem impossible? Trust me, it's true.
These two fun guys have put together a gem of a little book that would be a great gag gift topped with some good advise as well. I giggled when I read 'Blister Buffer' on page 215. Just Duct tape over the blister area for quick relief. Too funny.
This book is what it is so enjoy it for that. My husband received it as a Christmas gift and it truly gave our family a lot of laughs and yes a lot of new ideas on how to use duct tape. Relax and enjoy the funny things in life and this is one of them. Great little book.
