A clever collection of true stories celebrating real-life ?MacGyverisms?
For anyone who?s ever wished they could channel 1980s action-adventure icon Angus MacGyver?a secret agent known for relying on his brains, scientific prowess, duct tape, and a Swiss Army knife to save the day?this unique collection commemorates the use of improvised genius in everyday life. The ?MacGyverisms? recounted range from the concrete (using Chex Mix to provide traction in an icy parking lot) to the intangible (saving a relationship with the perfect turn of phrase). Divided by theme, the book features over forty true accounts in all?some by well-known writers, including Chuck Klosterman and A. J. Jacobs, most by ordinary people.
Edgy, entertaining, and smirk-to-yourself funny, these masterfully told stories reveal that, with a little luck and a lot of ingenuity, you can ?MacGyver? yourself out of virtually any predicament.
