RICHARD WILSON    Book Number: 86435    Product format: Hardback

Sub-titled '101 Things Not to Do Before You Die' this is a companion to Don't Even Think About It code 86439 which also pokes fun at miserable old gits. Wilson is the TV producer behind Never Mind the Buzzcocks and Room 101 and now of Have I Got News For You. This time he turns his attention to visiting Machu Picchu, canoeing up the Amazon, showering in a waterfall, seeing the Great Wall of China, going to Thailand, swimming with dolphins, seeing the Taj Mahal, snorkelling in the Maldives, visiting the pyramids, backpacking around Australia, seeing the Parthenon, going on a balloon safari, bungee jumping, white-water rafting, driving at 100mph, having sex on the beach and that's just one of 37 suggestions from the introduction. We go on to the cultural section with albums like Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and Dark Side of the Bloody Moon, films like Citizen Kane and Taxi Driver, books like War and Peace and Catcher in the Rye, then after culture making yourself spend a day in Auschwitz and vow never to forget, building an igloo, making a dreamcatcher, learning a language, writing a book and performing in stand-up comedy. About going to a spa he asks "Is this what women really want? Do they really have such stressful lives that some rudimentary physiotherapy and a bit of witch-doctoring constitutes the height of luxury? Frankly, ladies, I'm disappointed." A funny modern look on life which makes you feel better about staying in your own comfort zone and saving your precious time. Thrill seekers just get what they deserve! 207pp, illus.
