Críticas:


"Every great book reminds us that we're all alone in the world. At least this one provides us with the means to entertain ourselves while we're here." Lemony Snicket
"It's what you'd get if you crossed the Boy Scout Handbook with "The Anarchist's Cookbook," and it's definitely the wildest how-to manual I've seen this year." Greg Cowles, "The New York Times" Paper Cuts blog

"What a joy to give children something they can do without 'hollering for help'...How to Do Nothing with Nobody All Alone by Yourself is replete with the sort of fun that childhood should be, and too rarely is." Blogcritics.com
"His book is timeless and remarkably timely in both spirit and hands-on ingenuity." "Brainpickings"
"Had I known about it, Robert Paul Smith's 1958 book, '"How to Do Nothing with Nobody All Alone by Yourself," ' would have been my Bible. Smith gets down to the nitty-gritty on the first page: 'These are things you can do by yourself, ' he writes. 'You don't need any help from your mother or your father or anybody.'"Laurie Hertzel, "Minneapolis Star Tribune"
"This classic 1958 guide reintroduces kids to those natural urges that have to turn random objects into crazy great stuff...Readers will love that everything in this book was invented by kids and passed along by kids, that nothing costs money and that each of the projects is a seat-of-the-pants creation."Where the Best Books Are!
"You'll never hear 'I'm bored' again with this illustrated guide to simple, nostalgic fun.""Canadian Family"
