Overview


Top Ten Reasons to Buy This Book

10) Endorsed by the AMA (Automation Medical Association). Laughter is the best medicine, especially after a hard day's night on startup.

9) Wonderful coloring book for kids. See if they can spot their parents.

8) Inspiring comic book for aspiring automation engineers. The "Great Automator" is the superhero of choice for budding geeks.

7) Inspiring comic book for expiring automation engineers. The "Great Motivator" is the superhero of choice for retiring geeks. A large print version will be available after Ted receives his new set of "Colossal Pencils and Crayons."

6) Every picture tells a story. Send your stories to Stan and Greg for future cartoons in the possible, pending sequel. Look for the swimsuit issue where "Robbie the Robot" sports his Speedo.

5) Charming anniversary present. This book is a diamond in the rough and says "forever" if dipped in acrylic. Not suitable as a gift for Domestic Companions.

4) Boss-friendly unlike previous books by Stan and Greg. There are very few jokes at the expense of management. In retrospect, this was an oversight on our part but it does mean the book does not have to be delivered in a plain brown wrapper. Actually, Stan tried to add more management jokes, but Greg seems to be mellowing in anticipation of receiving Medicare.**

3) Get a refund. If this book is no laughing matter, send the original UPC along with a self-addressed stamped envelope to Stan and Greg. They will email you the tracking number for the $0.25 royalty rebate along with a picture of Stan cleaning the pool.

2) Discounts for futuristic "Great Automator" and "Robbie the Robot" action figures. Just show your copy at the next ISA EXPO to your friendly ISA bookstore person. Pose the figures to guard the entrance to your cubicle.*

1) Great preparation for the upcoming "Automation Reality" TV program. Twenty vendors and one "user" are locked in a room with 1000 PowerPoint slides--very similar to a local ISA meeting.

*Action figures may not be available in your lifetime and discounts are not inheritable; however, the editor is working on a plan to make them available as SYMBOLS for your nursing home nightstand.

**In the end, it seems like Ted will slip in a cartoon of a female-type boss trying to convince him that "discrete manufacturing" is more important than his ethics or appearance.

At the current time, this book will not be offered as an Educational Book Cartridge for the Leapster Multimedia Learning System Library. The Leapfrog Company cannot decide whether the book is suitable for pre-kindergarten.

Warning from the Automator General - This book may cause uncontrollable laughter. Do not read this in combination with any other books by Stan and Greg.
