More often than not, the only thing that helps when faced with the adversities of life – is laughter


Sometimes, it just hits you and you don’t even know why. That’s when life seems nothing but chaotic, devastating and confusing. Fighting this, however, is profoundly pointless – and anything but funny. If, yet again, you’ve rushed into one of those crises at full throttle and can’t find your way out, you should take a look at The Little ABC of Survival. From »Age« to »Work«, from »Jealousy« to »Divorce« and from »Subconsciousness« to »Doubt« it offers humoristic crutches for the more rattling aspects of life and a lot of fun on top of that.
