This is an auction for GET A GRIP by Kaz Cooke. reviews:

“FIVE STARS! If you want a book that will have you in stitches, then this is it! I laughed so hard I cried. The book is a collection of columns Kaz Cooke has written for various newspapers in Australia. Kaz writes about fashion, sex, women's rights and politics to name a few. One of my favourite articles is titled 'Shock horror, size 14', I laugh every time I read it! I enjoy this book so much because it pokes fun at everyday things and makes me feel good reading about just how silly some things really are, while having a really good laugh at the same time! Kaz Cooke's dry humour really appeals to me."

"Kaz Cooke's observations are timeless, timely reflections on almost everything important, including NASA, interior design pornography, collective nouns, lerv, weirdos and how to find your inner Nanna. Kaz has a weakness for Scottish accents, an undying hatred of cats, a devastating gift for one-liners and an obsession with the Miss Universe contest ('because, as its name suggests, people from other planets may enter'). Get a Grip is fierce, funny, frank, intelligent and informative; an essential companion to life and everything you need to know about thigh boots, political correctness, food fads, foreign policy and the sex life of clams. Kaz has an unerring eye for hypocrisy and fun."
