Irony and humor are your friend.

I bought "How to avoid the empire state building" and now I don't have to go there.

My wife worked in the ESB when I met her, I took her away and saved her

Do not charge the huge ship at full speed in an attempt to scare it off. This may work with coyotes, but it is less effective with huge ships.

What ever it is, thankfully I missed it too. $129 for a used paperback is even more strange..

TOO Informative.

Read this book before going on vacation and I couldn't find my cruise liner in the port. Vacation ruined.

I just spit some of my coffee. FUNNY as hell!

Love this review:
I bought How to Avoid Huge Ships as a companion to Captain Trimmer's other excellent titles: How to Avoid a Train, and How to Avoid the Empire State Building. These books are fast paced, well written and the hard won knowledge found in them is as inspirational as it is informational. After reading them I haven't been hit by anything bigger than a diesel bus. Thanks captain!

I love this type humor and I found them funny as hell.
This is a new "thing" there are funny reviews on a ton of things now .
I remember reading some funny sh1t about a 1000 dollar hdmi cord
Then there was something like a wolf or coyote t shirt . I believe I saw that one here
Some of these folks are very creative ,and some are very funny.

"When on my jet ski in the Chesapeake bay this summer I was confronted by a huge ship moving up the channel. You can imagine my horror when I realized I had only 1 hour and 45 minutes or so before the lumbering behemoth was sure to pass through my area. With no place to hide and only a water jet propelled small craft beneath me for transport, I quickly withdrew my Kindle Fire from the storage compartment beneath my seat and preceded to read the book How To Avoid Huge Ships. One hour later and with only 45 minutes to spare, I implemented the expert advice provided by the author and turned my jet ski in the opposite direction of the huge ship to avoid certain disaster"
