AllMoreIn the spirit of the bestselling Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook comes a clever collection of true stories celebrating real-life MacGyverismsYoure driving on a deserted road when your car dies. Your cell phone isnt getting service. All you have on hand are a gum wrapper and a wire hanger. Or maybe youre living in a building without central air conditioning in July. You cant afford an AC- all you have access to are a fan and a bucket of water.In such times of desperation, many have called upon the symbol of all that is inventive, the hero who awed thousands with his cool, quick wit: What would MacGyver do? they ask..For anyone whos ever wished they could channel the 1980s action-adventure icon comes this clever collection of forty-five true stories, commemorating the use of improvised genius to solve everyday problems. Inspired by televisions Angus MacGyver (played by Richard Dean Anderson), a secret agent who relied on his brains and scientific prowess - not to mention duct tape and a Swiss Army knifeto save the day, 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). 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.
