Notes

Description
Hiaasen presents "The Graduation Speech You'll Never Hear," telling graduates (or new job-holders, or brides-and-grooms, or newly-released ex-convicts) the truth: you need to disregard the lame platitudes, keep disillusionment at bay, and assume that bad things will happen in life. Yes, life is a shit storm. No, you're not all doomed. And you might even survive with a sense of humor intact.
Description
"This may be "the graduation speech you'll never hear" but it is unquestionably one that everyone must read. In these times, which seem to get crazier by the day, we can all use a dose of reality, one that anchors us in the sobering present and prepares us for the slippery future. Carl Hiaasen -- whose words are brilliantly illustrated and amplified by Roz Chast -- dares to tell us what we need to know, slap us in the face, make us laugh, and frighten us to a proper degree, as well as inspire us to aim higher. Ultimately, this very special book is proof that nothing is more valuable than the truth. Assume the Worst is the best gift anyone, at any age, can receive."--Jacket.
