Overview

Compressed into one slim but surprisingly informative and intensely researched volume, The Best Time to Do Everything is an irresistible guide to the essentials of living.

The Best Time to Do Everything is really just that-a guide to the best time to do everything in life. From buying shoes to cleaning a murder scene, each entry is built around the well-informed advice of an expert in that particular field: Donald Trump on the best time to haggle, Johnny Ramone on the best time to learn to play guitar, Bill Maher on the best time for a political conversation, the Car Talk guys on the best time to repair your car. Not all of the advice comes from celebrities, but all of it does come from people who know their stuff. Incredibly useful (best time to buy life insurance, best time to look for a job, best time to purge and organize), entertaining (best time to start a high-fashion modeling career, best time to approach a celebrity, best time to cheat on your diet), and outrageous (best time to get punched in the face, best time for a coup, best time to have sex with 209 strangers), The Best Time to Do Everything is educational, practical, and wholly addictive.

Editorial Reviews

Miami Herald
"Intriguing."
Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"Delightful.Guaranteed to stimulate interest."
Library Journal
This delightful little book by freelance journalist Kaplan gleans from the experts the best time to do everything from cheating on one's diet to having surgery. A professional blackjack dealer discusses the best time to raise and bet, while an MIT professor explains the best way to play blackjack. There is something for everyone here, whether the need is serious (the best time to come out or get pregnant) or just for kicks (the best time to approach a celebrity). Guaranteed to stimulate interest, this is recommended for all public libraries. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
