Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David Schuster | 2/19/2014

    " Some cool thoughts. Real experts! Smacks of modern culture decay that these wise voices have to condense their fields into three pages. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Glenn Banks | 2/12/2014

    " the description on how to floss was wrong. i was taught a different way in dental school. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Caryn | 2/6/2014

    " it took me forever to read this book as there was no storyline, no plot, nothing to hold my interest. and some things are hard to teach via the written word, like driving a stick shift. as such, i am not sure how effective entries like that were. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 _topo_ | 2/5/2014

    " simpatico divertente e, si, utile "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melinda | 2/1/2014

    " I learned some new things and improved some other things. Each item is only a couple pages. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dragonmom | 1/25/2014

    " I learned a lot of things in this book . "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kenna | 1/20/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book, very interesting and entertaining. It's got 100 short essays by experts on how to do things - how to listen by Larry King, give and receive a compliment by Ms Demeanor, wash your hair by Frederic Fekkai. An easy, fun read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 1/17/2014

    " One of the most surprisingly enjoyable books I've run across. Has entries on "how to wash your hair" by a leading hair sylist in New York, or "how to jog" by a 10-time winner of the Boston marathon...or "how to get out a stain" by Heloise. You get the point. It's a fun read with 2-3 page chapters - good for bathroom readers or busy moms. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Linda | 1/14/2014

    " This was an interesting book, but almost an information overload, while at the same time offering pretty obvious guidance. A few chapters were helpful. Probably more of a reference than a direct read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 lindsay | 12/12/2013

    " this was a lot of fun--one of those books you can't put down. the variety is what keeps you reading, and all of the "things" are covered in 2 pages or fewer, so it all seems do-able. now i "know" how to sew a button, wash my hair, remember names, and kiss! ;) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ruth | 11/23/2013

    " Not as fun as it seemed like it might be. A lot of the advice was superficial, but perhaps that's because the space was limited. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Faith Fielder | 11/21/2013

    " I found so many things that I thought I knew how to do, but didn't, that I find this book valuable to go back to. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tara Shuman | 11/21/2013

    " Loved this. Still working on some things from this book. Like how to tie a niecktie. I feel like as a woman,I sometimes rely too much on that others could do for me. Just because I am a woman doesn't mean I should know how to do these things. Like change a tire. I felt empowered after reading this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maria (Ri) | 11/2/2013

    " Great idea for a book! So many of these little instructions were written by the person who I would really like to most learn that skill from as well! I learned quite a few things from this easy to read book. I'll certainly look for more books in this series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Noirin Shirley | 10/15/2013

    " I already knew how to do most of the things in this book. Some of the descriptions are fun - more of them are confusing (even when you know how to do what's being described!) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Missy Atkin | 9/3/2013

    " This is a really cute book, filled with things everyone really should know how to do! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michelle | 7/29/2013

    " i thought this was going to be more interesting than it was. Some of the "tips" were ridiculously obvious. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Amber | 5/11/2013

    " I saw this at the library "sure, I would like to know how to do these 100 things that are important." Well, I am pretty sure everyone I knows how to do these things without the book. My favorite was add a chair to the dinner table when a guest brings an uninvited person. No Really!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael | 12/9/2012

    " This book is interesting, funny and engaging. It has already helped me to improve my life and I am working every day on perfecting my shave and making the bed right, and vacuuming the carpet more efficiently..... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Liz DeCoster | 12/8/2012

    " This book was an interesting concept, but I didn't really find most of it to be helpful. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steve | 5/5/2012

    " While some of these are bonehead-obvious, there are many that are quite useful. A helpful "how-to" book that covers a wide variety of practical subjects. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 James | 1/17/2012

    " Fun idea, and some genuinely insightful advice. The quality of the advice varies from article to article, expert to expert and some you will you just skip over entirely (How to tie a bow tie). Overall though a good summer read; light and for the most part entertaining. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anna | 1/1/2012

    " Unless you are in desperate need to learn how to fly a flag I don't recomened this book. Every once and a while there was good advice but a lot of the time I found myself skipping the pages I didn't care about. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenn | 9/9/2011

    " I read this while giving the ACT. A cute book with some useful tips, but I will admit I do not know how to do a lot of the stuff in that book (why do I need to know how to tie a bowtie?). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ashli | 7/21/2011

    " This book is GREAT! It tells you how to do everything! Each section is only a few pages, so you can learn something even if you only have 5 minutes to read. I think this is a great gift, too! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Arie | 6/25/2011

    " boring (except learned a good tip on making green tea-- cook h20 to just before boiling), let tea bag sit in tea for about 3 min "
