About The Book

Finally, we all have a good excuse!  This definitive guide covers the entire gambit of self-justifications, so everyone from the frustrated CEO to the mid-level executive, from the soccer mom to the lazy student can convincingly say: It’s not MY fault!

Discover brand new, impeccable excuses for being absent when you should have been present, arriving late, missing the deadline, flunking the class, slacking on the job, consuming too much junk food, and lots more.  Plus, there are great ideas straight from the rich and shameless and a list of monosyllabic excuses for those who can’t be bothered to tell a whopper.  Best of all, the book has a devious reversible cover so you can carry it anywhere and always have a lie at hand!
