The New York Times Practical Guide to Practically Everything, 2nd Edition

I can never decide if these "guides to life," so to speak are meant to be taken seriously or if they're meant to be a little cheeky. I say this because they often combine practical knowledge (reducing your investment taxes, how to how to play Mah-Jongg, how to fix your own computer, how to drink wine) to the laughably improbable (how to react if confronted by a bear). This $32 NYT guide — a good gift for know-it-alls or know-nothings — looks like a dictionary and spans nearly 1,000 pages.
