Every time I get summoned for jury duty, I bring this book with me to read while I wait. I have never been picked to sit on a jury. Is this a coincidence? Is this blind luck? Is this evidence of a (dare I say it) conspiracy? I don't know and I don't care, because I still get paid for showing up. Whether or not this book will get you out of social obligations and court appearances is up for debate, but it helped ME build my own solid gold submarine.
