"It's a dangerous business, going out your front door."

In the age of men, one must face myriad challenges: epic quests, imminent danger, the evil gaze of Sauron . . . okay, so maybe not. But wouldn't life's day-to-day challenges be easier if one were to take a cue from the diminutive hobbit? With The Unofficial Hobbit Handbook as your guide, you'll be ready to brave the difficulties, discomforts, and occasional orcs you may encounter.

Become acquainted and form fellowships with the peoples of Middle-earth: elves, dwarves, wizards, Ents, and more Learn about the dangerous creatures that lurk in the lands beyond the Shire: orcs, wolves, and dragons Use hobbit tactics of running away, hiding, and disappearing (with or without the use of magical rings) Discover the proper etiquette for the delivery and solving or riddles

So put another log on the fire, cut another slice of seed-cake (is it time for elevenses already?) and curl up with The Unofficial Hobbit Handbook . You'd never consider going on a nasty adventure, but it's always best to be prepared, right?

Very amusing, with some good points about life in general. The world, from a halfling's (ground-level) view. The only drawback would be a few swear words, otherwise, an engaging and humorous look at life in Middle-Earth and life in general.
