How do you give a good wedding toast? How do you fix a clogged drain? How do you bowl without hurting anyone? Questions like these—some highly practical, others wildly funny—make up this engaging do-it-yourself guide. Collected from the popular feature how-to columns in the Chicago Tribune called "Life Skills," this book is filled with often humorous instructions on performing tasks that many of us have never gotten around to figuring out, or that we've always wondered about. Some are truly useful pieces of advice on technical topics with straight-forward explanations, while others are good for a laugh or cover the more ambiguous, open-ended grey areas of ending a relationship or breaking the ice.

Life Skills covers a broad range of subjects, with chapters on home economics, at the office, at play, technical topics, and social issues. It is a light-hearted and funny guide that is not your usual "self-help" book. Rather, it is a unique collection and simple guide to the many skills it takes people a lifetime to learn and perfect. A quick and easy read, Life Skills will certainly teach readers many new things and supply them with plenty of conversation points for their next party.
