Synopsis

How to be Normal Advice for the Perplexed by Guy Browning

Normal people are extremely unusual. Think of all the people you know and ask yourself how many are normal. None of them! In fact you're probably the most normal of the lot and, let's face it, even you're not that normal. All normal people believe they are a little bit different, a little bit unique and a little bit special. On the other hand no one wants to be abnormal, so it's a fine line to tread. Happily, this brilliantly funny book shows everyone exactly how to be uniquely normally normal. Is it normal to: ...hold the banister with both hands? ...find the green man at crossings mildly attractive? ...drive a shopping trolley on the right? ...be afraid of aggressive hand dryers? ...wonder what coconut milk is actually for? Find out the answers to these and a million other perfectly normal questions in another beautifully funny, surprisingly wise and consistently heart-warming book from the best-selling Guy Browning.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

My horizons have been broadened by some of the books I have been lucky to review and I expect it to be no different in the future.
