Find a copy of the English series Black Books (it played latenight CBC), if the book doesn't make you calm, at least it can make you laugh.

I am buying this book for my friend as an inside joke, because we both love the show "Black Books". However, it looks like it has some pretty good insights. It's certainly positive!

I'm yet another person who bought this little book as a joke after watching Black Books. It's one of my boyfriend's favorite shows, so I thought it'd be a funny surprise as a stocking stuffer. He was definitely surprised and loved it. I've flipped through it a few times and if I think of it as a book, rather than a silly Black Books joke, it's actually really cool. It actually is calming, too!

A truly excellent book, one that will certainly get you through the day and, if you're lucky, out of a bad job. Filled with wonderful tidbits about oranges and lavender AND it's easily digested - your body just absorbs it!

I highly recommend this book to all, whether they be bearded or not.

I admit it: I also partly bought this item because of its reference in Black Books. (You gotta laugh sometime!) Although, The Little Book Of Calm is a great way of helping you stay calm throughout the day with easy-to-remember advice. Highly recommended!

This book works wonders and was very appreciated by the recipient. However, I must say for best results this book should not be eaten.
