Being Left Alone ... One Irritating Situation at a Time. In "The Misanthrope's Guide to Life", readers learn how to get away from the pain-in-the-asses who make readers wish they owned a deserted island. Readers owe it to themselves to memorise these survival strategies for obnoxious situations, including: channel a weeping 4-year-old boy in urine-soaked X-Men pajamas to avoid the post-coital cuddle; conduct managed incoherence to get the delivery boy from the lobby to your door; and, taking a 'French leave' in order to eat alone at work. Featuring everything readers need to know to get out of the most undesirable social scene, this is the survival guide readers will be annoyed not to have.

My experience in reading this book is that you kinda have to be in the right mood for it (and I wasn't, always). If you are, the snark is hilariously, bitingly, funny.
If you're not (or you have no sense of humor, whichever applies)...well... it can be a bit off-putting.
