Show Me How: 500 Things You Should Know Instructions for Life From the Everyday to the Exotic

Visual learners will definitely get a kick out of this book. Clear graphics and minimal text show you how to do a wide variety of useful, useless, and always amusing tasks. Even kids can do some of these things, though adult supervision is strongly recommended. 

Here's a small sampling of what you'll learn to do:

  • create a festive piñata
  • carve a radish rose
  • mix a classic martini
  • sew on a new button
  • make a boutonniere
  • repair a leaky showerhead
  • give a parrot a bath
  • treat a bee sting
  • tie basic sailing knots
  • wrestle an alligator
  • make crop circles
