    This was a cute and uick read The advice was backed up by actual professionals in each field which was a nice touch but I hope there is a dislcaimer in this at the beginning saying not to try this stuff without training because I'd hate to see someone end up in the hospital because they tried to leap onto their roof from the groundFor the most part this made me laugh But there were three or four places where the author suggested duct taping your boobs for extra cleavage Can we just discuss how much this would hurt to pull off? And another part about delivering a child under duress the author suggested that the heroine make sure her pelvic area is covered I beg your pardon? If I'm popping a kid out on my own floor I don't care if my pelvic area is covered Seriously

    Fun cute but shallow not a book so much as a coffee table pictorial reference Given medium think that it should have aimed for guffaws Fell a little flat

    Although this is classified as humour in most bookstores and libraries there is nothing funny about this book A misleading that led to a disappointing read

    Couldn't decide if it was trying to be funny or serious

    35 rounds up to 4 stars for me I really enjoyed the assortment of information that seemed to be drawn from actual experts but was kind of bored by the heteronormativity whenever it showed up Still a fun and sometimes surprisingly informative read

    35 fun and some practical advice as well

    Some of this book is what you want it to be a stuntwoman's guide to riding the front wheel of a motorcycle a sensei's tips on disarming an opponent armed with a knife a private investigator's stakeout tips but some of it is ridiculous An action heroine doesn't need tips on How To Marry A Millionaire that protagonist would be a comedienne Still I did find a lot of the individual movie references funny like what to do if you encounter an actual gorilla in the mist Some of the makeup tips like how to get Wonder Woman's hair are also funny light and well played Some of them involve using bronzer on cleavage and veer into fashion magazine territory Not much action or fun to be found there Also the book advises you to agree to a polygraph and tell the truth Like an action heroine never has anything to hide from the police This reviewer recommends exercising your fifth amendment rights and not saying anything until your lawyer shows up because we live in the real world and the authorities aren't always the angels Additionally in the How To Go Undercover As A Man the author recommends bustier women use Ace bandages to bind their breasts Stop perpetuating the myth Ace bandages lead to broken ribs breathing difficulties and awful uncomfortable bruises Fitted binders are available and can be purchased discretely on the internet But the advice on not eating sushi before trying to drink someone under the table is legit For real Just don't drink much at all if all you've had to eat is sushi Life Lesson All told this book is a somewhat amusing thing to leaf through I definitely don't recommend taking the advice seriously but it is pretty funny in places

    Not uite sure why this was put in the humor section at the library except that maybe there just wasn't any other category where it would fit I was disappointed to find that this wasn't humor it's an actual instruction book complete with pictures It would be extremely useful if you're planning to make stuntwork a career or to have an alter ego superhero; otherwise don't waste your time
