Pogue’s Basics: Life 
by David Pogue
Paperback – 24 November 2015
Did you know that you can use the indented rings on a red plastic cup as measurements for 1, 5, and 12 ounces, the standard serving sizes for liquor, wine, and beer? That a Chinese food box is designed to unfold flat and form a plate? When you buy aluminum foil or saran wrap, did you know that there’s a press-in tab on the end panel of the box that you’re supposed pop in that acts as an axle for the roll and prevents it from leaping out of the box when you tug? Another extremely helpful piece of advice? Statistically speaking, on average the lowest plane fare for a given ticket is available 52 days before the flight. 
Following the success of the New York Times bestselling Pogue’s Basics: Tech comes the next book in the series Pogue’s Basics: Life which will be a timeless reference book of 200 simple tips and shortcuts that just make life easier, shedding light on valuable bits of advice and life hacks that already exist in the world around you, but you just never knew!
The perfect book for the holidays, Pogue’s Basics: Life will be accompanied by photographs and illustrations, and collects all useful tips and tricks in one place for you to easily access.
