    The Author has mixed a certain lightness and yet a seriousness to exploring and giving helpful tips on dealing with everyone. "Dull"- Not!

    I highly recommend this collection of literary Gold. What an uncommon read that is short on fluff and long on getting directly to the meat and potatoes of every aspect of navigating people and/or coming to a better understanding of Life and oneself. If your not afraid of a Spicy collection of healthy challenging ideas then this is your book. If you are afraid then this is still your book! If you plan on spending the rest of your life under a rock then this is not your book.
    I have read this book several times because it is a short read and full of really good info. Keep your long wordy novels away and give me something to sink my teeth into with some good ol'e practical tips. The book is loaded with them. When I reread this book I always miss my long gone grandmother, Gertrude and my Great Aunt Bee because of "thier" no nonsense approach to everything. And on top of it all the price is right!
    Thank you Murray Oxman!!

    Some of it is interesting...but

    I would not necessarily call this a "book". It reminds me of a pass-around-pamphlet. Has some good info. The author should have it on a website somewhere to attract readers to his site or blog. Not interesting enough to purchase. More like 17 pages of paragraph summaries for chapters that should have been written.

    Gabriel Grayson (sign language prof at New School) did the new edition

    ...which I think is wonderful. The original was a little gem, but Grayson seems to have done ALOT in his re-working (re-writing maybe?).
    A really lovely book which allows you to rethink social interactions or to become much more skeptical (and, therefore, involved) in them. Tells, ticks and nuances of doubt, this tips you off on how to read them.
    Provides you with tons of clues to day-to-day encounters and, just as much fun, news-watching.
    My wife and I learned to sign from his previous book.
    I am still not sure if I am happy about what she has learned from this one.
