Off-Site Event at The Hideout: Daniel Kibblesmith and Sam Weiner Talk How to Win at Everything 11/16

Nov ’13
3:00 pm



Nobody chooses to be a loser – they just haven’t found the right advice. This ground-breaking new handbook guides readers through how to win at everything (actually, more like dozens of things) —even things that aren’t competitive, and that you can’t or shouldn’t try to win at, such as eye exams, puberty and apologizing.
Essential diagrams direct winners through activities such as raising a child (remember: feed them daily and have them checked by a veterinarian), bird watching (start by spotting common species like pigeons, or dogs), fishing (throw a toaster into a lake), faking your own death (Write DEAD on your library card in red block letters) and many more scenarios for success. In sharing their hard-won knowledge, the authors—who win at winning—help readers become the future winners they were meant to be.
