So I checked out Amazon today, and they recommended a book that had what at first sounded like a really really cool title, which on closer examination of the book, wasn't nearly so cool. It was titled Controlling People.

This is something to file next to How To Make People Like You, which sounds like it should be about cloning, but isn't.

Evans' book The Verbally Abusive Relationship" is one I'd highly recommend to anybody who is in one, anybody who has gotten out of one, and anybody who loves someone who used to be in one. If Controlling People is as good, it's probably worthwhile.

This reminds me of the Simpsons episode with Kronos and Kang (sp?) and their "How to Cook Humans" aka "How to Cook For Humans" aka "How to Cook Forty Humans" book!

Serving your fellow man

I'm sure it's an old joke, but I first heard of the varient of the Human Cookbook in The Chronicles of Narnia when Jill and Eustace are staying at the Giants.
