Amusing Survival Guide

This is a very light-hearted and amusing tongue-in-cheek take on the "survival scenario" genre. It is self-effacing and it takes itself even less seriously than many other similar books. The humor in it is quirky, yet all the putative examples of garden gnome attack and your strategy of defending yourself seem plausible in a twisted, zany kind of way. The book is very nicely illustrated with large-size pictures of actual garden gnomes. It is a bit too large to be a pocket book, but not as large as most hardcover books. It makes a cute coffee-table book, waiting area book, or an amusing and inexpensive gift.

Be honest... you mean to tell me you've never looked at those creepy little bearded creatures and wondered what they're up to? We owe a debt of gratitude to Chuck Sambuchino for warning and preparing us for this crisis in his book How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack: Defend Yourself When the Lawn Warriors …
