"The Slightly Dangerous Book For Wimps" is a parody for our times, when safety regulations and scare stories are reducing us all to quivering wrecks. This lily-livered manual combines laugh-out loud observations on the things that scare us; a deadpan guide to negotiating the inherent dangers of everyday tasks when uncoordinated; plus slightly dangerous games and adventures for a world where the default emotion is abject terror. For the yellow-bellied and jelly-spined among you, the ever-so-slightly risky life skills include crossing the road; shaving without sharpness, swallowing big food; safety conkers; vertigo treehouses; talking to girls; stationary go-karts; walking into a room; living without mother; and flossing. The time has come to wrestle with your inner wimp.
