Please don't worry about about the condition of any 2nd Hand Books or other items you purchase, they'll be exactly as described in the details section. Or more objective: a few entries were fairly well argued, such as the one about the history of the marathon being a myth and marathon running being more about proving your fitness than continuing a tradition.

If it had been funnier then this book would have worked, unfortunately it just feels like an old man ranting about things he doesn't like/thinks is overrated. An amusing and satirical take on all those Must Do Before You Die lists that are constantly cropping up in books, newspapers and online (and Lord knows where else).Some funny (and often sopt-on) reasoning on most of the 101 things (I guess the author did well on his school's debate team), but ultimately, a bit samey throughout.

Again, if it had been funny then it could have pulled it off, but it's really not funny, nor clever. Can't Be Arsed" by Richard Wilson is an antidote to all those lists of 101 ___________ to do before you die. I am happy to leave dolphins alone, parachute only when the plane I'm in is not going to make it and, as for tying rubber bands to my legs and jumping off things with a nice view . In this book he makes it seem as if you do anything new you're just making a bad choice and that the best solution is to not try something new.Its a funny book laced with British dark humor so probably not the best if you’re easily offended or dislike strongly opinionated books. I think RW would be OK with me saying that because he says so in the book - skip the parts you can't be arsed to read LOL.

So the next time someone insists on swimming with dolphins, reading Kafka in Prague, or skydiving, you can feel better about thumbing your nose and staying in your comfort zone instead.Whilst I understand the reasoning behind Richard Wilson's book, the expected 'humour' just wasn't there. whereas the Pyramids, the last surviving Wonder of the Ancient World failed to live up to our overly heightened expectations.
