This rather irreverent take on how-to books is at times very funny. However, the book as a whole is rather uneven. While some of the advice has a practical bent (making pancakes, getting stains out, dealing with snoring), a good deal of the tips include the absurd (how to ride an ostrich). This odd juxtoposition makes for an uneven, if occassionally entertaining, book.

I was pleasantly surprised with this book. This is an adult version of "Daring Book for Girls", where we are taught 211 handy tricks. From the useful (how to replace an electrical socket, how to get out of a car without flashing everyone), to the pointless (how to make a little black dress out of a garbage bag, how to go over Niagara Falls in a barrel), to the just plain fun ones (how to walk on stilts, how to make Turkish Delight)!

This is a very funny and surprisingly helpful book. Much of the how to stuff is quite informative if not overly practical, but maybe I will make butter one day. A great book to keep by the bed side and pick up and read sections at random. Very fun.
