Surely you know those motivational posters that are always getting parodied on the Internet? We'll they've finally made a book about it.
Give Up: Life’s an Adventure for Most... a Concussion for You, written by Paul Koehorst, is a collection of hysterical posters summating a cynical twist on such inspirational posters.
Koehorst gives life lessons on:
Humiliation: There's no Point Trying, You Just Look Ridiculous (featuring a picture of a baseball player eating dirt while missing a fly ball; Failure: Sometimes it is a Matter of Life and Death (with a picture of a distressed ER doctor); and Cheating: You’re Never Too Young To Start (featuring a picture of — ironically -- a young golfer blowing the ball into the hole).
The book is available at major bookstores or online at Amazon.com.
