Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This charming little how-to guide by Chicago-based comedy writers Kibblesmith and Weiner makes a great gift for the clueless and unaccomplished friends in your life (let's face it, you have plenty of those!). Before you have the chance to gift-wrap it for them, it's worth thumbing through yourself. "
