    Clearing out my to be read pile!This book is clever. All it is is one giant checklist of secret skills and abilities. This is the kind of book you take to lunch with a friend to look over together or give as a gift at a party.Here are a few of my own secret skills listed in the book:-Waking up without an alarm-Liking a one-hit wonder band's other songs-Citing old Far Side cartoons-Philosophizing-Being embarrassed on the behalf of others-Reshelving books correctly-Finding scraps of paper to wrap to gum in-Keeping the line moving-Succumbing joyfully to the hype-Checking for swollen lymph nodes-Feeling vaguely bad because you're not into Anime-Guessing which pieces of an art exhibition will be available as postcards at the gift shop

    Yes, I realize that I just gave this a higher rating than I did carefully researched historical monographs and ambitious works of fiction. But I try to rate books on how well they accomplish their goals, and this one accomplishes its goals well.This is not a deep work of towering achievement--it's a gag book. A bathroom reader. And you know what? It's pretty good at that. The items are witty, such as - sweeping things under the rug (literally)- sweeping things under the rug (figuratively)You won't read it straight through, but as something to occupy yourself with for a minute or two at a time, this is cute. Although it may make you feel bad, as you realize that you do not have the ability to decide which doughnut you want with briskness and confidence, nor can you adjust shoulder straps to the ideal length.

    this book reminded me of "14,000 things to be happy about" or a little of "the book of awesome." it's silly, but it's also a reminder - notice and take joy in the little things, the things that make you unique and make you you - you have a particular skill set that no one else has. the items on the list that were the most "me": walking long distances in flip-flops. check. sticking stickers to things. big fat check. guaranteed that somtehing in this book will make you smile. :)

    Though initially I found this book a bit repetative, I'm glad I stuck with it -- because it often made me laugh out loud. I would tackle 3-5 pages during a break or to get a change of pace from a more demanding book ... and I found it delightful. Find your rhythm with this book and enjoy the ride.

    Interesting, fun, empowering, obliviously sexist. They suggest checking off things you do, marking ones you want to do, and putting a minus sign next to the ones you don't wanna do. So when I've come across sexist things I put a minus next to them and the fun continues. :)

    This book is basically a giant checklist of dubious skills and talents that one might have.Enjoyable for a little bit as a browse thru book when with friends and with nothing better to discuss, I didn’t really find it particularly interesting.

    I thought this was a book. It was in fact a very long list.
