A book that might make you gruntled

Advantages: One of the funniest books ever written in my view
Disadvantages: Maybe a little dated, but what do you expect from 1930s fiction?

‘The Code of the Woosters’ was first published in 1938. Of all Wodehouse’s Jeeves and Wooster novels, which have generally been his most popular thanks to several TV and radio adaptations, this has always been one of the best loved. He wrote about ninet ...

Review of The Code of the Woosters - Sir P G Wodehouse

AND You Can Stop A Table Wobbling With It!

Advantages: Compact - some sensible advice to pick the bones out of
Disadvantages: Avoiding alien abduction?

Review of The Worst Case Scenario Survival Handbook - Joshua Piven

Danger It lurks at every corner

Advantages: The only book that will tell you how to escape from Killer Bees
Disadvantages: Could be a wee bit cheaper as everyone should have one, including the queen!

This is a fabulous, witty and very helpful book. It is 17 x 12cm in size (there is a pocket version available) and I reckon that everyone should have a copy of this book at work, home and on-the-go. Forget Delia, she may cook tuna for a living but doe ...
