About the Author
2015 saw the publication of 'The Manopause Manual', an important guide to men of a certain age (but not their wives) about how to make it through this tricky time. Should we get a beard, a sports car, or a shed? Can we ignore modern obsessions with exercise and food? What tips from psychology will help when pitching to our othe half for a lads holiday? The answers are here. His earlier book 'How Not to be a Tourist in London' is now (2015) available as a paperback, fully reviesed and with new chapters. The ebook has also been massively updated. Alleged to be an insider's guide, the curious insights and unexpected facts create an air of uncertainty about how London really operates. Is it for real? PK's best-known paperback book, You Can Stick It (Dec 2010) is an important milestone in the history of publishing - the first satirical sticker book for grown ups to be produced since the repeal of the Corn Laws. Visit his blog at http://youcanstickit.blogspot.com to look at some example stickers. There's an images-only ebook of 'You Can Stick It' now, so round 70 satirical, surreal and frankly silly sticker designs can be viewed at a very reasonable price. The stickers are not peelable, however. Munroe's first book, The Thursday Night Letters (2007) outlines schemes and ideas to improve society and make money, generated in the white heat of the innovative furnace that is a London pub on a Thursday evening. Odd but just-plausible concepts were pitched to the Royal family, captains of industry, Sir Alex Ferguson, and others. The book consists of his letters and their replies. The Guardian called it "a delicious satire" while Peter Jones of BBC TV's Dragons' Den found it "hilarious in the extreme". Now re-named 'The Pub Letters', this is available as an ebook on Amazon, and in all other formats for just $0.99c, from Smashwords
