Description : Obsessively-detailed, and very funny, instructions on nearly everything in life you are very possibly doing all wrong. Help is here! From how to eat an ice-cream cone to developing "principles" when you have none, the author's mission is to elevate, and ennoble, those fleeting instincts we all harbor to get our lives in order. "Hills is preoccupied primarily with the little things," Nora Ephron wrote in the New York Times"and he writes about them deliciously." This volume includes three titles previously published individually: How To Do Things Right, How to Retire at 41, and How to Be Good. They have been edited, revised and combined into one volume and the contents will have you laughing out loud, thinking hard, and at least temporarily rearranging your frazzled life. Hills is wise, witty, and very, very funny. But behind the humor, Hills remains a deeply sage and serious writer. This is his best advice, from years of experience, served up from the heart of one of the most charming humorists to grace the American scene.
