Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0970506104, Hardcover)

Full of the exuberant wit and trenchant insight of the humorist who, according to NEWSWEEK, "writes intelligently about issues that are close to our hearts, without ever making us feel as though we've heard it all before," Planet Idiot is a rollicking survey of stupidity in the most unexpected corners of everyday life.

From Idiot waiters who smother your sandwich with Dijon mustard when you've specifically requested the cheap stuff, bank tellers who demand to see your I.D. when you're depositing cash, and children who ask Loud Embarrassing Questions in public, Stokes advises us how to cope with life on Planet Idiot.

Totalitarian homeowners' associations, slack-jawed Starbucks employees, the uncanny differences between men and women ("Women communicate; men go through the mail"), the beauty of long-term relationships ("You pretty much get to stop shaving all the time"), and people who flash their headlights at you when you're driving too slowly. Lindsey Stokes takes us on a guided tour of Planet Idiot--and shows us how to survive.
