5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect present 21 Feb 2010
Format:Paperback
As a huge fan of the series 'Black Books' I had to get this as my friend's Christmas present. She was really thrilled with it and now carries it around with wherever she goes! She tells me it actually works too, but if you do know anyone who loves the series then I definitely recommend this as a cute little joke gift. It even features the quotes that were used in the epsiode! Just be careful - DO NOT SWALLOW! :P Delivery was relatively quick (although I did order this around the busiest time of year) and the price is not too bad I don't think!

3.0 out of 5 stars Keep Away from Soup 16 Mar 2008
Format:Paperback
A "must have" souvenir for any Black Books fan. However, I don't think I can take seriously the suggestion that I should wear "a few childlike accoutrements" ("Donald Duck Pants") or purchase a "negative ion generator".

Still, the simple, practical advice about breathing slower, relaxing in a warm bath, and taking time to enjoy life is good. Even if it is obvious.

I haven't had the courage to eat soup near it yet either!

By A Customer
Format:Paperback
It is difficult to imagine to what extent the advice given here would actually help people who really have something to worry about. There are about 160 little gems like:
"Have calm thoughts.
Picture calm scenes.
Recall calm sounds.
And guess what you'll be feeling ..."
Three more, not exactly untypical, are
"Pretend it's Saturday."
"Imagine every day is a holiday. Do one little thing that stimulates this holiday mood each day, then watch your worries fade away."
And "Remain on the lookout for things that make you laugh - and, if you see nothing worth laughing at, pretend you see it. Then laugh."
I tried pretending that this was a good book, and I hadn't wasted my money.
It didn't work.

I guess without seeing Black Books first this book has no real meaning. But if you've seen it then it's hilarious!
