Life throws up all sorts of situations for which we are totally unprepared:

"My boss is coming over for dinner, how do I make sure I don't get fired by the end of the evening?"

"I've been selected for jury duty, what should I wear?"

And so on...

It's a nightmare. But don't worry, help is at hand!

Whatever quandary you find yourself in, Jason Cook can use the benefit of his huge array of mistakes and life-lessons to guide you through.

Themes include what not to say at funerals; how to set about sex education; how to pass job interviews; how to cope with office politics and parties; how to plan a wedding and best man speech; how to dump somebody, and counselling somebody who has been dumped. Plus how to ask somebody out and first date etiquette; and introducing a partner to the in-laws.
