The Crazy Lives of John Dybvig

Tags : 

by John Dybvig

Have you ever had the urge to walk out on your life – to stop and start again?

Californian John Dybvig has made a habit of it. He’s travelled the world, changing jobs more than 100 times in search of happiness. He’s done everything from coach professional sport to acting roles in Hollywood blockbusters. He’s left a trail of broken relationships but finally found true love to become a dad at 50 and a house husband at 60.

The Crazy Lives of John Dybvig is his collection of books in which he shares the twists and turns of his amazing life – stories that will always make you laugh, sometimes make you want to cry and could make you wonder about your own life and where it’s going.

Follow this larger-than-life lunatic as he rampages through the United States, Australia and New Zealand in a quest for contentment.

This collection includes all the books in John Dybvig’s series – How to Survive as a Big Actor with Small Parts, How to Survive as a Sports Jock with Attitude, How to Survive Travel as a Loud American, How to Survive Being a New Dad at Fifty, How to Survive 103 Jobs and The Mob, How to Survive Falling in Love on the 3rd Strike and How to Survive as a D-List Celebrity.

This value-for-money edition also includes a bonus chapter.

How to Survive as a Big Actor with Small Parts is Dybvig’s hilarious description of his journey from taking up acting in his forties to working with some of Hollywood’s biggest stars and directors like Sir Peter Jackson.

How to Survive as a Sports Jock with Attitude is Dybvig’s uproarious account of his chaotic career as a professional basketball coach. He’s started riots, nearly frozen to death and been banned for life from one town in his efforts to coach championship teams.

How to Survive Travel as a Loud American is Dybvig’s comical story of his efforts not to fit in while living abroad. If you ever wondered how the stereotypical loud American traveller came about, you’re about to meet him.

How to Survive Being a New Dad at Fifty is Dybvig’s entertaining and heart-warming story of how his wild man personality was tamed by the birth of his children.

How to Survive 103 Jobs and The Mob is Dybvig’s side-splitting account of his ability to land weird jobs in any part of the world – working with everyone from child actors to professional wrestlers, and selling everything from miracle cures to Californian accents.

How to Survive Falling in Love on the 3rd Strike is Dybvig’s moving story of how he finally found true romance when he least expected – and how love changed his wild man ways.

How to Survive as a D-List Celebrity is Dybvig’s amusing and entertaining record of how he accidentally became famous in the farthest regions of the planet – enabling him to walk the red carpet and flip burgers all in the same week.

* Some of the stories in this series have also appeared in our print memoir of Dybvig’s chaotic life, The Two of Me.

Boaties’ Tales (ebook Edition)

Tags : 

by Peter Jessup

Boaties’ Tales is a collection of weird, wonderful and often hilarious stories about man’s obsession with staying afloat – whether it’s aboard a yacht, supertanker, fishing trawler or in the humble dinghy.

Author and veteran journalist Peter Jessup shares a lifetime of boating yarns from New Zealand, where he lives, and afar.

Learn about the worst (and most unusual) shipping disasters; the world’s fastest, biggest and most expensive boats, and enjoy some stories that will simply make you laugh.

They say the happiest two days of a boat-owner’s life are the days he (or she) buys a boat – and the day they sell it.

This collection of stories reminds us all why that’s the case!

What the reviewers say

‘Every boatie should get their hands on this gem.’ – Kerry Hebberley, Hawkes Bay Weekend.

‘Stories that will make you laugh and others that will shock and surprise.’Hawkes Bay Today.
