Description
You may be suffering from unrecognized awesomeness
  • You have the uncanny ability to always notice when someone has gotten a new haircut.
  • You can make the last half-ounce of toothpaste last for a month.
  • You're a genius at getting stores to let you in even though it's closing time.
  • You're a wizard at resisting the urge to eat all the cheese right after grating it.

    This book is a celebration of all your secret skills and unheralded abilities. It calls attention to the way you're able to give your kids names that will never appear on key chains at gift shops, and cheers your talent for wrapping presents using very little tape. In your own way, you're a master, and the world should know it. Because let's face it: YOU ARE GOOD AT THINGS
