“Name one other book that not only tells you what to do if you’ve stepped in dog poop, but also tells you how to deals with a bad haircut. You can’t—which is why you need this book. Rob Sachs is like Erma Bombeck with balls.” – Jason and Randy Sklar, comedians, actors, and writers “Rob Sachs is a sublime combination of daredevil and doofus who displays his shortcomings with grace and, sadly, pride. His very funny life and book teach us to embrace our inner moron so that we may confront life’s challenges with confidence and humility.” – Brian Unger, comedian and former correspondent, The Daily Show “Rob Sachs is America’s foremost nonexpert on everything the experts failed to teach us. Practical advice for an impractical world. Will this book save mankind? Probably.”  –– David Nadelberg, author/creator, Mortified What would you do if you were struck in the middle seat of an airplane? What would you do if you clogged the toilet at a friend’s house? What would you do if you were seriously underdressed for a party? Do any of these situations sound familiar? If you’re human, you’ve probably had lots of cringe–worthy moments like these to live down in your life. NPR’s Rob Sachs has certainly been there, too. In his successful What Would Rob Do ? Podcast series, Sachs had consulted with celebrities ranging from Fabio to Erik Estrada to Air Supply on how to deal with dozens of daily dilemmas and common conundrums. Now he brings together a wealth of these insider tips with tales from his colorful life experiences in a single survival guide to fixing a full spectrum of life’s most vexing minor mishaps and speed bumps. So the next time you accidently decorate your shirt with spilled Chinese takeout, don’t ask “Why me?” Ask “What would Rob do?’ and get through every tight spot with your head held high. Learn what to do about: Forgetting people’s names Singing karaoke Getting pulled over for speeding Going to a nude beach Going to a high school reunion Picking a good date movie Stepping in dog poop Coping with pimples Surviving parenthood
