A delightful visual compendium and very nearly a substitute for good common sense, How To is the silly and seriously useful guide to mastering the miscellany of modern life. Packed in this chunky little volume are hundreds of instructional diagrams, culled from vintage how-to books, manuals, and product packaging, illustrating how to do anything you'll ever need to do—and many things you won't. With a bare minimum of text and just a few action arrows, these hard-working graphics are here to help. Learn how to use chopsticks, breakdance, tie a trash bag, diaper a baby, and parallel park. Discover the right way to do a cartwheel, use dental floss, hammer a nail, and slice bread. And if you've ever wondered whether you were walking correctly, wonder no more. With chapters to help you navigate the daily concerns of manners and grooming, home and family, health and safety, sports and exercise, and science and the world at large, this pocket-sized primer is the only book you'll ever really need. Honest.
