Weekend reading list

This weekend, simply lie down, flip through the pages of Murphy's Law and discover the humour in the irony of life

Weekend reading list

It's always those plentiful ideas that conjoin at a point to make a story. So, this weekend, let's just not read a story but a multitude of ideas in the name of laws that will certainly remind you of stories from your life, stories that were ironic when they happened but seem hilarious in retrospect. 

We recommend you to go and get yourself a copy of 'Murphy's Law Complete - All reasons why everything goes wrong', a compilation by Arthur Bloch. The compilation contains all the other laws of life you can think of, in addition to Murphy's classic statements. 

Here are a few excerpts from the book:

'As soon as you mention something... if it's good, it goes away.... If it's bad, it happens'  - The Unspeakable Law by Murphy

'Assumption is the mother of all screw-ups' - Wethern's Law of Suspended Judgement

'If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried' - Wright's Law of Failure

'It's better to have a horrible ending than to have horrors without end' - Matsch's Law

This weekend, sit back on your armchair, flip through the intended pun filled within the pages of this book and discover the reasons for everything that went wrong when it did. 

Have a great weekend.
