If you need to turn to someone for advice, forget your friends and pick up this book. Collected in one small editon are words of warning from the wise and not so wise. Some of the advice is bizarre, some of it ironic and much of it oh-so-true. If you're the kind of mug who lends money, listens to his children or believes everything he's told, then this is the book to keep you on the straight and narrow. You don't have to by a cynic to read this book ...but it helps.
