"Economics: The art of deciphering the charges on your phone bill" and "Purpose: Everyone has to have one; mine is watching TV."
New York, NY (PRWEB) March 1, 2010
Anything but corporate, this hilarious book features a collection of irreverent parodies that capitalizes on the familiar look and style of the traditional motivational (or demotivational) poster, but its original combination of outrageous text and full-color photos packs a surprising -- and hilarious -- punch. Covering a wide range of topical issues from career to politics, relationships to environmentalism, these parodies may not help people find their true potential, but they will make them laugh out loud!
Among the clever, sometimes off-color, "motivational posters" included in this book are and "Good Will: One that leaves you with a large inheritance," "Economics: The art of deciphering the charges on your phone bill" and "Purpose: Everyone has to have one; mine is watching TV."
Kanfi says that the motivational-poster format lent itself well to many jokes. "It's current and familiar," he explains. "It was a great vehicle to deliver jokes and to comment on day-to-day life situations." Kanfi describes the book as "a fun and entertaining book that's perfect for the coffee table or bathroom," adding, "It's visually appealing and it's hysterical. I haven't met one person who has been able to put it down!"
