Mess: The Manual of Accidents and Mistakes Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Your whole life you've been taught to avoid making a mess: Try to keep everything under control, color inside the lines, make it perfect, and at all costs, avoid contact with things that stain.

This book asks you to do the opposite of what you have been taught. Think of it as your own personal rumpus room. A place to let loose, to trash, to spew, to do the things you are not allowed to do in the "real world." It's time to make a mess.

The only three rules you'll find in this book:

1. Do not try to make something beautiful.

2. Do not think too much. (There is no "wrong.")

3. Continue under all circumstances.

Synopsis:

This manual of accidents and mistakes asks readers to do the opposite of what they've always been taught and follow three rules: 1. Do not try to make something beautiful. 2. Do not think too much. (There is no "wrong.") 3. Continue under all circumstances.
