This Book Will Change Your Life: 365 Daily Instructions for Hysterical Living

Front Cover
Penguin, 2003 - Humor - 379 pages

Is the year ahead looking much the same as the last? Another 365-day grind of meetings, dinner dates, and deadlines? If so, try this book.

Part instruction manual, part therapy, part religious cult, part sheer anarchy, This Book Will Change Your Life will help you poke a stick in the spokes of your routine.

It's not the soft-hearted kind of book that's interested in what you have to say; rather it contains 365 daily orders, each one of which could turn your humdrum existence into a daily free-fall.

A friend was down and struggling to find the humor in life so I picked this book up and with a daily email or phone call passed on a "life-changing" idea.
