How To Do Everything

(From the Man Who Should Know)

Publisher: Anchor Canada
It may not be great literature — but at least it's handy.

From the mastermind of the hugely successful The Red Green Show comes a book that is going to change your life, or at least make you laugh  — a lot  — whenever you pick it up. And people are going to be picking it up for many years to come, because — like the long-rerunning TV shows  — there's not a topical gag in the book anywhere, so it's going to be funny for the forseeable future. And as its title suggests, this is also a terribly useful book. Among its very many gems of advice, it shows how to cook with acetylene, take revenge on a lawn mower, measure your hat size with a two-by-four, reduce your carbon footprint (it involves moving into a fruit tree located next to a liquor store) and make your own alternative fuel (which involves an empty propane tank and a full septic one).

PRAISE FOR

“When looking for wisdom on big questions, I turn to either the Bible or Red Green.
Ken Gallinger, Ethically Speaking columnist, Toronto Star

"[H]ilarious, satirical and smart. . . .Some of the advice--such as [Smith's] tips on surviving marriage--is wiser and more honest than anything you'll read in a real so-called self-help book."
The Globe and Mail

"Thankfully . . . Steve Smith is as crafty with words as he is with DIY home renovations."
Toronto Life

"For those suffering from Possum Lodge withdrawal--fear not, because Red's back and he's written the ultimate do-it-yourself and self-help manual all rolled into one."
