New Release: What Would Rob Do?
Rob began What Would Rob Do? as an NPR podcast. He thought of embarrassing, awkward and unique situations and then talked to friends, family and "experts" about the proper actions in each situation. The book is a collection of these brief discussions that include Rob's own experiences. The book has a great flow and is funny. It's heavier on anecdotes than advice but I don't think that's a fault.
There is a wide variety of topics covered from dog poop on your shoe to bargaining at a flea market. And the range of experts is fantastic -- Erik Estrada, rock band Air Supply and the one and only Fabio, just to name a few. So when you get a warning instead of a ticket and when you get to eat the best food at the Vegas buffet, you can thank Rob. Personally, I've been inspired to come up with a catchphrase. I'll work on it a bit before inflicting it on you, though!
This would make a great Father's Day or graduation gift (along with a check, of course!). I am going to be mailing my copy off to my brother, Brian, because I think he will love this book.
