What is the secret of happiness?

Can the laws of attraction help you to cheat death?


What's the best way to get rich during the zombie apocalypse?


How do you fix your life with nothing but a spork and a DVD box set of “Charles in Charge”?


Why do you see evil clowns every time you close your eyes?


These are just some of the questions this book won't answer for you.


ALWAYS REMEMBER TO TIP YOUR NINJA contains 99 absurd maxims that will change your life forever, or at least make you chortle.


Here's a tasty sampling:


"The pen is mightier than the sword, if you know where to poke it."


"The best part about being in a pickle is eating your way out."


"Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer. But leave the mimes outside in the cold where they belong."

"Jeremy Shipp is a very good drug." --John Skipp, author of The Emerald Burrito of Oz


"Two thumbs up!" --Midwest Book Review

Review



So when I saw this free on Amazon, I immediately downloaded and read it. I think I was in a place then where I need cheering up. So off I went! This is a really short compilation of maxims edited to be funny. You can see some samples in its blurb.


I really wanted to like this but I guess my humor's kinda different than those who rated this very high. I found a lot of maxims corny and not just funny. But no biggie since I only got this for free. But I read reviews raving about this so really, maybe it's just me. There were really funny ones where I laughed hard and loud but a lot were meh too. I really like the title though. Hee.

Anyway, a short review for a very short book! Hope you'll enjoy it more than I did!
