'A hoot'. * Times Literary Supplement * `Cathcart and Klein know their stuff, and wear their learnedness lightly...I can't help but love this book, and I have been quoting liberally from it.' * Philosophy Now * `What happens when you mix corny jokes, one-liners and vaudeville humour with some of life's great lessons? You get an extraordinary read you'll want to share with as many people as possible.' * Orlando Sentinel * `A hoot!' * Chicago Sun-Times *
