A parody that is the antithesis of self help books. The original pile of eloquent filth. Some have suggested that this black cloud of wisdom is, in fact, the Anti-Christ in paperback. But you know better. You know there comes a time when children need tripping, dolphins need flogging, and by gum, old people need a-murderin'. Add it to your collection today for a brighter and bitter tomorrow. In the spirit of Saturday Night Live's pithy Jack Handey, DiGiorgio gives advice on how to be more self-centered, cynical, and, most importantly, how to have a good time.
A new edition of Keri Smith's bestseller, with updated material Think of Wreck This Journal as the anarchist's Artist's Way -- the book for those who've always wanted to draw outside the lines but were afraid to do it. For anyone who's ever wished to, but had trouble starting, keeping, or finishing a journal or sketchbook comes Wreck This Journal, an illustrated book featuring a subversive collection of suggestions, asking readers to muster up their best mistake - and mess-making abilities to fill the pages of the book (and destroy them). Through a series of creatively and quirkily illustrated prompts, acclaimed artist Keri Smith encourages journalers to engage in "destructive" acts - poking holes through pages, adding photos and defacing them, painting with coffee, colouring outside the lines, and more - in order to experience the true creative process. With Keri Smith's unique sensibility, readers are introduced to a new way of art and journal making, discovering novel ways to escape the fear of the blank page and fully engage in the creative process.
A flashback to the iconic pop cultural moments of the decade - this is history at its most irreverent. Any `90s kid will find themselves reminiscing over The Spice Girls, Furbies, Robin Williams in Flubber, Pokemon, Jelly shoes and Leonardo DiCaprio's floppiest hairdos. Any millennial will say that the 1990s were the best decade - even though many were still in nappies at the time. Regardless, they're right. Much of `90s culture dictates ours today. Without Friends or Seinfeld, would our world still turn? If Nirvana hadn't made it big, would grunge have ever reached the masses? Can anyone even pass a driving test without training in Mario Kart?? We doubt it, and this book proves it.

A stiletto slipped between the ribs and through the left ventricle of the heart' Financial Times __________ When Korede's dinner is interrupted one night by a distress call from her sister, Ayoola, she knows what's expected of her: bleach, rubber gloves, nerves of steel and a strong stomach.
