About The Book

Nobody's perfect. Every day, some guy forgets his wife's birthday, some schmuck drives his Corolla into the Lexus in front of him, and some mother forgets to make cupcakes for her kid's school bake sale. But you'll never sweat the small stuff again. This book gives these denizens of disaster a major self-esteem boost by detailing 220 of the world's most easily avoided catastrophes, such as:

  • The Donner party camping trip. Oh, pioneers! The Sierra Nevadas are not a winter wonderland. Guess you learned the hard way.
  • The sinking of the RMS Titanic. Hello!? Does anyone see that huge iceberg? No? Okay then.
  • Madame Curie's death from radium poisoning. Come on, Marie, put on a Hazmat suit, will ya? Your creepy glow-in-the-dark skin is freaking everyone out.

After all, everyone makes mistakes. It's just that some people's faux pas are worse--way, way worse--than others.
