Description
Having endured the Great Depression and World War II, they weren't called the "Greatest Generation" for nothing—our grandparents had a wide range of skills that are hardly universal anymore, including how to paddle a canoe, wax your mustache, and give a speech. Erin Bried's affectionate if tongue-in-cheek guide is a crash course in hands-on work (splitting firewood, catching a fish, changing your oil); practical conduct (saving money, buying a suit, controlling your temper); the niceties of life (how to shake hands, make a toast, and write a love letter); and having fun (throwing a football, mixing a drink, and playing the harmonica).
