For more than a quarter of a century, Murphy’s Law has provided the last word on things going wrong. Positive thinking is all very fine when the world is treating you right, but when things go awry, it’s Murphy’s Law that comes up with the goods-the pithy revelations and undeniable truths that document our limitless potential for misplaced insight, hopeless wit, and pessimistic wisdom.This special anniversary collection features the best of Murphy’s Law–plus new 21st-century entries proving that with advances in technology, even more can go wrong.For example:No matter what goes wrong, there is always somebody who knew it would.Anything is easier to take apart than to put together.For every action, there is an equal and opposite criticism.The less you do, the less can go wrong.Everybody lies, but it doesn’t matter since nobody listens.
Arthur Bloch is the author of numerous books in the popular Murphy’s Law series as well as a satirical self-help book, Healing Yourself with Wishful Thinking. He lives in Oakland, California.
