The Clever Bastard’s Guide to Entertaining

Our long-awaited shipment of books from the publisher has arrived. And Dorothy and I couldn't be prouder.

The Clever Bastard’s Guide to Entertaining, is the complete package. As you flip through the pages, I think you will be inspired to want to throw a party. And hosting a party is not as daunting as you might think. With a bit of organization, you will be able to host a night of socializing and entertaining that is guaranteed to be stressless and fun. The Clever Bastard’s Guide to Entertaining also includes tried-and-true dinner recipes that will impress even the most sophisticated palates. Not only is it packed with real-life advice to make your party run smoothly, but it will also serve as an excellent reference. I think a book on entertaining should be entertaining in itself, and it is written to read much like your favorite novel. My approach is lighthearted, fun, and simple. After all, hosting a party isn’t brain surgery.
