What is this craze?
I remember it starting with "DOS for Dummies" long ago. Now apparently everyone needs to be a moron to learn something.
I had to go to a Waldenbooks Store to find a book before my 8 hour bus ride home from visiting a friend.
The entire computer section proudly announced that it was fully idiot compliant. I just find it rather demeaning, I mean really; I want to walk to the counter with one of these things, the proud yellow and black jacket trumpeting out to the store that I am a total fool. The other thing that scares me are books like "America Online for Dummies", quite an redundancy. Better yet, how about "MCSE for Dummies"... Correct me if I am wrong but didn't that used to be a whole set of classes and 8 tests for CS majors to take to land a cush job?
Since we are just going to make a little booky-poo for everything, here are my recommendations:
- Home Brain Surgery for Dummies
- Shoe Tying for Dummies
- Professional Football for Dummies
- Cult organization and Management for Dummies
- Sleeping for Dummies
and the ever popular
- Plutonium for Dummies
