If laughter is the best medicine then this book is the prescription. It is a collection of humorous and sometimes cynical observations on the trials and tribulations of an ordinary harassed individual, attempting to work and live in modern day Ireland. It finally addresses some of the great mysteries of life such as "Where do old cars go when they die?" and "Why can we never find socks that match?" In addition it offers an insight to the behaviour of that rare and nearly extinct species whose natural habitat until recently has been the building site, lest we forget.
