I didn't read this book, but I'm leaving this 5 star review to offset the only other review, a 1 star review. Type Os don't brother me won bit.

Wow. Seriously?

“If you click your key fob twice instead of getting in your car and searching for the unlock buttons, it unlocks all the doors?” Who the hell doesn’t know that??

“Setting the metal thingy under a gas pump nozzle locks it into place so you don’t have to squeeze or even touch it?” Really? I had no idea.

Someone actually made money on this book. To be fair, I didn’t get past the sample but after the first few pages, can you blame me? I got one though...If you put a liquid into a refrigerator, it will stay cold as long as you keep it in there. Brilliant


This book is useless.
