The Book of Big Excuses [Hardcover]

Tracey Turner , Sally Kindberg
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

Available from these sellers.

Book Description

16 Oct 2008

This book will teach you that

* you're unlikely to get away with pretending to be dead.

* it's better to dump someone with no excuse at all than to tell them it's because they only like early Radiohead.

* sometimes, giving a genuine excuse is far more embarrassing than saying nothing.

* pretending to be an answering machine is never going to be convincing.

* you should never attempt to eat your underpants under any circumstances.
