One of the best books "about nothing" that we've ever come across.
A gentle family man describes his philosophy of life in a diary format.

Features highly opinionated disquisitions on topics such as:
  • The best way to scrub an encrusted pan in the morning in the dark and make sure it's clean.
  • The progression of a fever.
  • The best ways to pick up a pair of underwear with your bare toes.
Will make you want a pet duck.
Suitable for: Mature high school level readers (others are likely to be bored out of their minds rather than amused) and adults.
