    Great Stocking stuffer

    I am ordering this book for all my friends and relatives for the holidays. It has fun simple answers to typical irritating worries. Hopefully, everytime I say to them 'Be Safe' instead of Goodbye, they will remember!

    The Book That Keeps on Giving

    Afraid of death? I certainly was (and maybe still am a little) but since I read this book, I am a lot more careful about a lot of things. Well written and informative, it makes a great gift for others. It's entertaining. Absolutely delightful. I just wish I had thought of it.
