Books, television shows and websites are forever ordering us around - 100 things to do before you're 30; 50 albums you must own; this year's must-have handbag; change your life in two weeks. Why - is this an increasingly desperate search for happiness? What is this obsession with lists, and why should we care? Can(QD (Bt Be Arsed is a hilarious diatribe from the head of comedy at Hat Trick (producers of Have I Got News For You, Room 101 and Father Ted) that takes a detailed look at the alternative side of the 101 most frequently cited must do's, revealing the ugly details that most of these guidebooks conveniently ignore. It gives off-putting facts and statistics to quote at holier-than-thou thrillseekers, so the next time somebody tells you that you simply must swim with dolphins, read Kafka in Prague, or go skydiving, you can tell them exactly where to get off. Here, at last, is the timely antidote to the plethora of '101 things' books so beloved by vaunting adventurers, to finally make them stop telling us how to live. Wish-fulfilment lists take heed. Humour.… (mer)

This does offer a nice twist on the books full of lists that we have around.

This list of things not to do includes The Great Wall of China - because you'll never see all of it and China has a poor human rights record, White Water Rafting - because its too dangerous, Say hello to a stranger every day - because everyone will think you are suffering from mental ill health etc. He lists a whole load of classic albums and films that are not all they are cracked up to be - you'll agree with some and not others. He debunks the benefits of rebirthing, dancing in the rain, watching the sunrise on a beach and building a bonfire on a beach - he is right this will always involve someone getting out a guitar and playing 'losing my religion'.
If you like grumpy old men, you'll probably love this. ( )

No a bad look at the typical things people rave about and putting them into perspective. Indeed as the title says the Author cant be arsed; unfortunately this translates to not being arsed at being all that entertaining at times. ( )
