    It just might be the most important book you ever read...

    If it it weren't for this book, i don't know how I could live in today's world. If you infer the book good enough, it's not only a guide to living through a horror story, but it could help you in any real life situation. Don't GIVE this to a friend if they want to read it, just let them borrow it. The book explains why. Seth G-S really outdid himself when he wrote this guide, and I now realize how necessary this guide is. Don't leave the house without it!<BR/><BR/>P.S. Read it whenever you get to, even if it's like the 100th time. You can only benefit from learning the skills this guide has to teach.

    SOLUTION!

    If you could possibly be in a horror movie, you NEED this book to survive! Careful though, how you got it could influence your fate. Unsuspecting jocks, doubtful sheriffs & slutty goths: BEWARE. Read this if you want to stay clean & make it to the end of the movie.

    The book of the night!

    This book is very hard to put down. I have laughed, I don't know how many times since I started reading this book, and it is the kind of book that I could read over and over again. I would definatly tell people about this book and a couple of my friends have already been asking to borrow it! If you can, get this book! :-)

    Loved it. However, I think I can dispute one part. There is one

    Loved it. However, I think I can dispute one part. There is one horror movie where there IS full frontal male nudity. The Movie Slaughter High.

    Chinese New Year

    I needed help finding subject matter to teach five year old. The clerk got me to your books.
    One is an informational book for me to make sure my information is accurate. The other was a pop-up for the kids. Both books are just what I was looking for. Now when we make our dragon puppets, eat oranges and receive little red envelopes, it will all make sense.
