I’ve fallen and I can’t get up

Over-coming Clumsiness
Physical dexterity for people who thought is was impossible
Chandler and Eisen
1986

I think this is one of the oddest books I have seen lately.  I don’t even know how I found it in the catalog.  (Clumsy is hardly a common keyword search) The title and and the back jacket don’t do this title justice.  It is a combination of Tai Chi and the power of positive thinking.  What did concern me is that clumsiness is also a possible medical symptom and yet this book does nothing to address this issue.  (The owning library at least located this in 152’s and not in health.)  The average patron though, might not make a distinction with the Dewey numbers.

I have included the back cover and some interior pages.  Enjoy the fun and try not to fall down…

It’s confession time, ALB fans.  I, Holly Hibner, am a closet metal head.  Actually, not so closet.  I have been to several heavy metal concerts and been known to “bang my head” while driving.  Are you shocked?  Just doing my part to break the librarian stereotype…

Ok, now that true confession time is over, let’s talk about this book.  Dee Snider was the lead singer of Twisted Sister in the ’80s.  This was a cool book in my day!  It’s still a good book message-wise, but if you gave this book to a teenager today they would probably laugh hysterically and ask who the clown on the cover is.  It’s definitely time for an upgrade!
