'You won't find a singsong entry in this book that says, 'Magic happens' or 'Climb a tree with a child.' There are no pictures of cuddly animals . . . It's the stuff I wish somebody, anybody, had told me twenty years ago.'

No tattoos before you're thirty is a collection of witty, modern truths aimed more towards the realities of everyday life than the value of eating your greens. It's fun, irreverent and crammed with insight into contemporary life.
