9780452289291: What Would MacGyver Do?: True Stories of Improvised Genius in Everyday Life

A clever collection of true stories celebrating real-life ?MacGyverisms?

For anyone who?s ever wished they could channel 1980s action-adventure icon Angus MacGyver?a secret agent known for relying on his brains, scientific prowess, duct tape, and a Swiss Army knife to save the day?this unique collection commemorates the use of improvised genius in everyday life. The ?MacGyverisms? recounted range from the concrete (using Chex Mix to provide traction in an icy parking lot) to the intangible (saving a relationship with the perfect turn of phrase). Divided by theme, the book features over forty true accounts in all?some by well-known writers, including Chuck Klosterman and A. J. Jacobs, most by ordinary people.

Edgy, entertaining, and smirk-to-yourself funny, these masterfully told stories reveal that, with a little luck and a lot of ingenuity, you can ?MacGyver? yourself out of virtually any predicament.

About the Author:

Brendan Vaughan is an articles editor at Esquire magazine and the winner of a National Magazine Award for New Media.

From AudioFile:

Television hero Angus MacGyver was famous for his ingenuity in using everyday objects to help him get out of various life-threatening situations. If you liked him, you'll enjoy this collection of more than forty brief accounts of improvisation to solve crises in the real world. Patrick Lawlor and Shelly Frasier's narration captures the range of emotions common to each story: the frustration and spike of despair as a problem presents itself, the dawning of hope and inspiration as a solution works itself out, and the celebration that follows. All these are touched with irony as the impromptu inventors continually imply the message, "How did I get myself into this mess?" The brevity of the stories and the wide range of situations make this collection perfect for sampling while driving. G.T.B. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
