Real problems require surreal solutions. This collection of essays explores life's problems from working to eating to relationships to parenting, and suggests solutions which, if not altogether sane, are at least funny. If we can't solve our problems, we can at least laugh at them. Or at ourselves. Or at others. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

If you're even remotely considering NOT buying this book, read one of my favorite works by the author: The Best Defense is a Good Office ([...] and be sure you have your credit card handy afterwards. Here's a bit of it:
"Your office is a critical part of your image. It's an important part of the façade, like the shrink wrap on fancy cucumbers or the wax coating on otherwise soft and dull apples. Or like an exciting picture on the jacket of another dull mystery novel. Your office needs to clearly state, 'This is who I am. Kneel Before Me in Awe. And bring me a donut.'
Most offices today have a low-pile carpet designed for easy cleaning as well as providing decent camouflage of coffee and blood stains. But battles were never fought on carpet, and today's Corporate Warrior can't hope to reach his or her potential on such feeble grounding. Have marble or granite installed in the floor of your cube. Wear shoes with heels that make a clear clack of authority when walking on it. Pace often, and tap your foot constantly. Your co-workers all over the building will hear you being important all day long."
I hope to see more from this guy!
(Yeah, OK, I'm his aunt, but even if I wasn't I would write this review. Really.)
