Reviews

Delightful, application of sign-symbol illustrations and explanatory charts and graphics... In economical how-to steps, Holmes...clearly details almost any task you could imagine, from being a bouncer (or "crowd-controller") to panning for gold to building sand castles. Not everything is easy, but everything Holmes covers is fascinating.' New York Times Book Review Instant Expert is my new favorite book. Not a travel book per se, it invests at least two pages each to a slew of topics that can make you sound more educated... Written with a heavy dose of humor, the author quickly teaches you to be a flight attendant, an arthroscopic surgeon, a caber tosser, a book binder, a Japanese tea master, and a cat. Even if you have no inclination to be anything but what you are, this book is an entertaining and interesting read. You will learn something new, and be able to insert helpful tidbits of information into conversation at your next cocktail party or game night...Instant Expert...is worth every penny. Enjoy yourself and learn a lot by perusing this fun, useful reference book.' GeekDad
