The fearless author explores many angles of a threat that for the most part hovers under the radar: that of garden gnome attack. A lot sturdier than the smurfs (another deadly menace), and much better organised, garden gnomes are potentially the most lethal terrorist strikeforce on the planet. The author details the rise of the gnomic society, how they operate, potential attack vectors on your home and, most importantly, how you can defend yourself against them. It is in part grim reading as the conclusion must be that garden gnomes will likely supplant us as the dominating species on the planet, but that should only inspire clenched-teeth determination to go down fighting. The book offers great on hands-on advice how to wring their little porcelain or clay necks, but is comparably deficient in the tactical and strategic arenas. We learn that baseball bats are ideal short-range weapons which is of course handy to know, but given the magnitude of the threat, I am personally more interested in what a couple of killzone-overlapping Gatling guns might accomplish, or how best to deploy thermo-nuclear remedies to take them out en masse. Weighing in at only 106 pages the handbook is relatively slim, and could easily have been beefed up a bit. Still, as an introductory danger alert, and accusing finger pointing squarely at the range of co-opted garden equipment outlets, it serves its purpose beautifully. Your forked out tenner (or less!) will likely save your life. Buy.

really sooooo funny but I'm going to be sure and be careful not to talk too loudly around my neighbours "little people"...but between you and I its well worth the cash just for the warning let alone the laughs, this one is going as a present to my friend in the Emerald Isle, she too has my sense of humor and it will have a great home

Don't kid yourself that a garden gnome attack is what happens to other people and not to you. You are just as likely to be the victim as the owner of that nice garden down the road.

Statistics show that putting proper barricades in place reduces incidences of attacks to a manageable level.

Protect yourself now! Buy this book!

Forewarned is forearmed.

This book is funny! This book seems quite expensive but it is unique and makes a great gift for someone that is difficult to buy for.

I thought I would buy this for my parents as they have experienced the postcards from foreign countries with and without pictures of their beloved gnomes. One even brought a girlfriend back. This is a funny book, definitely one to entertain the gnome fanatic. Be careful out there.........

This book was a gift for a friend, it was impossible to find, but it was worth it

The quality of the book is decent, tho' it had a dent on one of the corners after being shipped.

Delivered quickly, good price, only down side is that I wanted it for a gift and the previous owner had written on the flyleaf which wasn't stated in the description.
