Shut Up Dad

A Guide to Life and Other Important Things

By Andrew Maxwell

So often “How-To” and “Self Help” books focus on actual instructions and useful information to assist the reader in reaching an understanding of not only themselves, but the world around them. This book is nothing like that. It is full of booze, mythical creatures, and multiple fighting techniques. If you lack the stomach for adventure, or dislike any of those things, I would suggest you not buy this. I would recommend either Great Expectations or Lady Chatterley’s Lover instead. They’re fantastic, and you can get them for free at your local library. Otherwise, this will be your favorite book (eBooks count as real books).
