No one understands the complexities of modern life better than Eugene Mirman--claims Eugene Mirman—and anyone seeking guidance from a man who has lived through everything (except the Great Depression, the Spanish-American War, and Jerry Lee Lewis's sex scandal) won't resist this charmingly hysterical guidebook.

  • Discover somewhere between four and two thousand ways to overcome social anxiety (closer to four)
  • Start a band, become an artist, or disappoint your parents by getting on a reality television show!
