What would you do if you were stuck in the middle seat of an airplane?
What would you do if you clogged the toilet at a friend's house?
What would you do if you were seriously underdressed for a party?

"Name one other book that not only tells you what to do if you've stepped in dog poop, but also tells you how to deal with a bad haircut. You can't -- which is why you need this book. Rob Sachs is like Erma Bombeck with balls."
--Jason and Randy Sklar, comedians, actors, and writers

"Rob Sachs is a sublime combination of daredevil and doofus who displays his shortcomings with grace and, sadly, pride. His very funny life and book teach us to embrace our inner moron so that we may confront life's challenges with confidence and humility."
--Brian Unger, comedian and former correspondent, The Daily Show

"Rob Sachs is America's foremost nonexpert on everything the experts failed to teach us. Practical advice for an impractical world. Will this book save mankind? Probably."
