Welcome to the start of the rest of your life! Sometimes, being a beginner can be a good thing. Sure, you wouldn’t want your pilot to announce that it’s their first ever flight while you’re 30,000 feet in the air, but everybody’s got to start somewhere. When it comes to marriage, being a beginner means you’re bound to make little mistakes – such as hogging the middle of the bed or burning the house down with your first home-cooked meal – but your partner will forgive you because they love you. And because now they’re stuck with you. Honestly, they’ll have forgotten all about it by the time you reach your silver wedding anniversary. Marriage is one big learning curve and you’re jumping in at the deep end, but the wicked and witty advice in Marriage for Beginners will ensure that you make a real splash!

There’s a baby on its way… help! Well, how hard can it be really? We’ve all seen it done; most of us have even had parents ourselves. You’d think we’d know what to do by now, wouldn’t you? But parenthood is surrounded by very important questions: How long before I can start drinking wine again? Should the father be there at the birth – especially if he can barely remember being there at the conception? Why do nappies cost so much? And the questions don’t stop, even when the kids are grown up: When are they going to give us our first grandchild? Why are they still borrowing money off us? And will they ever move out of our house? But luckily help is at hand, and Parenting for Beginners has all the witty advice you’ll need to start your new journey in style!

FAUXLOSOPHY by Ron English, is a compelling collection of the artist's sayings with his accompanying iconic images. It is a light read with indelible images bringing to life wit and wisdom to live by through art, humor and ironic inspiration. Indelible images bring to life his wit and wisdom to live by, delivered through art, humor and ironic inspiration Ron English is one of the most prolific and recognisable American artists alive today. Considered the Godfather of Street Art, he has appeared in movies such as Exit through the Gift Shop and Supersize Me and as a character of himself on the Simpsons. reveries from page to page. Quotable quotes. The building blocks of wisdom. Bite size nuggets of insight that pave the road to understanding. The life blood of philosophy. The nails that hold together universal truth. And occasionally erroneous bullshit. Lightning never strikes twice. Unless you're the Empire State building, which is struck an average 25 times a year. The definition of a fool is someone who does the same thing over and over again expecting different results. In my experience I have been arrested for certain behavior on one day and greatly rewarded for the same behavoir on another. I have repeated my actions and assumptions (though the circumstances changed) and gotten different results. Therefore I am the definitation of a fool, a fact I will not argue with because anyone who argues with a fool may be mistaken for one. Belief is truth, truth is the most believable lie, aned Fauxlosophy is the most memorable pronouncements of the true believer.
