A perfect gag gift for worrywarts, this bestseller presents real solutions to various (mostly improbable) crises. The fun comes from flipping through it until an entry or illustration catches your eye. The authors seem to have intended it less as a real reference than as a tongue-in-cheek comment on the ilk. On tape, one cannot flip through. There’s not much fun in just turning it on at the beginning and switching it off at the end--especially as read by Burt Reynolds. Not only is he obviously sight-reading without much comprehension, but he is doing so irritatingly thick-tongued. A quick and dirty job exploiting the popularity of the print original.
