It may not be great literature — but at least it's handy.

From the mastermind of the hugely successful The Red Green Show comes a book that is going to change your life, or at least make you laugh  — a lot  — whenever you pick it up. And people are going to be picking it up for many years to come, because — like the long-rerunning TV shows  — there's not a topical gag in th

Comedic, original and different, How to Do Everything is a Canadian book with a ton of humorous material, everything from weird home repair tips to strange trivia.
Bookworm Smith
I'm on a humour streak, this is the third in a row and by far the funniest. This whole Red Green thing; the duct tape jokes, the terrible handyman stories, and the 'man' views of life's little moments, are all starting to make sense to me. I can finally relate! It's only taken thirty years. With all this life experience under my belt I can relate, which leads to laugh after laugh. I'd say this book is aimed more towards the middle aged man, but, I'm mature for my age...guess that's why I find th ...more

A step-by-step guide at how to do nothing... I mean everything. Packed full of ideas to help you succeed at failure, this book is a laugh from page one. Your marriage and pocket book will be better off for reading How To Do Everything, and if they're not, be thankful it didn't destroy your pocket book. If for no other reason, pick up this book and give it a go to find out how to be a better Renaissance Man by learning from another mans example, and then never make the same mistakes.

If you've never seen "The Red Green Show" (and if you haven't, check your local PBS station now!), this book makes a great companion to the TV series. Red's taken a bunch of funny "Handyman Corner" and "North of Forty" segments, and spread them out among 250 or so pages, with his trademark humor, sarcasm, and wisdom.

So remember, after reading this book, "If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy."

Loved it. Another definite must read- contains practical life advice accompanied by homemade crafty drawing illustrations. Photo on back cover is priceless. Red Green's essential tool for most life problems: duct tape.

An enjoyable read, but most of this humor, in my opinion, is better suited for a visual media. But how can you not love chapters like "How to outsmart a raccoon"?

Written as little 1 or 2 page excerpts. Great as a bathroom read, but would be hard pressed to stay interested for longer than 5 mins.

If you are a Red Green Show fan, this is fun stuff. It reads somewhat like Dave Barry with less sarcasm and exaggeration.

I did not find this book as funny as I was hoping it would be. The main problem I think is that his style of humor is very visual, which just did not translate well too book form.

Hilarious as usual.

For the unfamiliar, The Red Green Show is sort of a Canadian cross between "Hee Haw" and "This Old House." Now it that sounds like something that would appeal to you, you'll like this book.

Lots of fun. Good for idle times -- short sections demand no continuing attention.
