About this deal

I am happy to leave dolphins alone, parachute only when the plane I'm in is not going to make it and, as for tying rubber bands to my legs and jumping off things with a nice view . To access your ebook(s) after purchasing, you can download the free Glose app or read instantly on your browser by logging into Glose. There are a couple of bands and television shows that he mentions that would connect with an older reader.

Taking it with a grain of salt as I plan to do with nonfiction, I finished the first part, skimmed through the second part because I barely knew albums mentioned, finished the small 3rd part and closed the book before the 4th. Ebooks fulfilled through Glose cannot be printed, downloaded as PDF, or read in other digital readers (like Kindle or Nook). Hilarious, but some of the things Mr Wilson moans about should probably be taken with a pinch of salt. An amusing and satirical take on all those Must Do Before You Die lists that are constantly cropping up in books, newspapers and online (and Lord knows where else).Enjoy dipping into Can't Be Arsed and laughing at people you know who take these bucket lists seriously - Richard Wilson certainly doesn't. A lazy, seemingly tired male (hence the spike in interest) lists things he finds overrated, overromanticised or simply too much effort, and hence advises us not to do them.

Book is excellent of its kind, given the author, but I do wish he would forego the use of words I haven't heard since my time as a cavalryman. His description of how pointless it is to build an igloo or put up a tent had me rolling around on the carpet in fits.Perhaps you can in fact attain happiness not by going anywhere or doing anything but instead by actually reducing your ambitions. Ever screwed up your Sunday newspaper in rage as yet another lazy journalist fills column inches with the indispensable hundred things to do, places to go, restaurants to eat in, books to read, etc, before you die? Does get a bit repetitive if too much is read at a time, but found that by reading short bits in between my other books it isn't as noticeable. I am happy to leave dolphins alone, parachute only when the plane I'm in is not going to make it and, as for tying rubber bands to my legs and jumping off things with a nice view.

For me it was an excellent book to dip into when I wanted cheering up, which lately given the current global pandemic, was much more often than usual.

Or more objective: a few entries were fairly well argued, such as the one about the history of the marathon being a myth and marathon running being more about proving your fitness than continuing a tradition.In this book he makes it seem as if you do anything new you're just making a bad choice and that the best solution is to not try something new. Some funny (and often sopt-on) reasoning on most of the 101 things (I guess the author did well on his school's debate team), but ultimately, a bit samey throughout. Due to the name of the author I couldn't stop from reading this in the voice of Victor Meldrew who is a fictional comedy character and a literal British Institution played by an actor of the same name. No missing or damaged pages, no creases or tears, no underlining or highlighting of text, and no writing in the margins. It's easy to see the grumpiness and general antagonism but I just found it to be a permanent rant in the same vein as the World According to Clarkson books.
