You're driving on a deserted road when your car dies. Your cell phone isn't getting service. All you have on hand are a gum wrapper and a wire hanger.
Or maybe you're living in a building without central air conditioning in July. You can't afford an AC; all you have access to are a fan and a bucket of water.
In such times of desperation, many have called upon the symbol of all that is inventive, the hero who awed thousands with his cool, quick wit: What would MacGyver do? they ask.
For anyone who's ever wished they could channel the 1980s action-adventure icon comes this clever collection of 45 true stories, commemorating the use of improvised genius to solve everyday problems. Inspired by television's Angus MacGyver (played by Richard Dean Anderson), a secret agent who relied on his brains and scientific prowess, not to mention duct tape and a Swiss Army knife, to save the day, the MacGyverisms recounted range from the concrete to the intangible (saving a relationship with the perfect turn of phrase). Edgy, entertaining, and smirk-to-yourself funny (using Chex Mix to provide traction in an icy parking lot?), these masterfully told stories reveal that, with a little luck and a lot of ingenuity, you can MacGyver yourself out of virtually any predicament.
