The Best Damn Answers to Life's Hardest Questions

$12.95, or wherever books are sold


At first glance, it looks like a children's storybook; perhaps something for bedtime. At second glance, it may be better suited for teens, considering its title, The Best Damn Answers to Life's Hardest Questions. But a third look reveals that this politically incorrect book, penned by former Cosmopolitan editor Tess Koman, is hands-down hilarious for adults. Each of the questions, from "Will I survive this hangover?" and "Should I talk s**t with my coworker?" to "My neighbor won't cool it with her music. Now what?" precedes colorfully Instagrammable flowcharts, lists of pros and cons, and hilarious rants. Some of the conclusions include, "You must shower!" and "Don't worry, this is just the overwhelming sensation of time passing you by while you compare yourself to other people. It'll subside if you take a Xanax."
