Hall, who won an Emmy Award as a writer for Late Night with David Letterman , delivers a bevy of crackpot advice for coping with life, love, and the elusive pursuit of success. He sees life as four car tires--love, mental and physical health, career, and spirituality--that should be in balance but rarely are. He invents a madcap existence from which his sharply barbed words of wisdom flow. Topics include a failed business (``The House of Index Cards''), a disastrous love affair, and the burden of coping with his Aunt Gretel (a resident at the Harriet Tubman Women's Shelter). Along the way, he intersperses his advice with a manic potpourri of tips, anecdotes, and quotes. This will primarily brighten bleak days for patrons of circulating library who enjoy the offbeat humor of Saturday Night Live (a show on which, incidentally, the author has performed).-- Carol J.
