“If a friend lets you down – perhaps by moving away for work and not answering your texts any more – you can take revenge by organising a reunion and slipping a fast-acting laxative into their pasta.”
Be the dictator you’ve always dreamed of being with this comic guide to life and everyday success inspired by everyone’s least-favourite autocrat. An ideal stocking filler
What can the rise of this century’s most feared politician teach us about life, work and love? Rob Sears satirises the machinations that enabled Putin to dominate the Kremlin and undermine the United States of America as ways to help you take control of your mundane life. Would you like to ruin your enemies by sharing compromising material about that time they didn’t wash their hands? Fancy hacking democracy at the parent-teacher association to ensure you’re a shoo-in for social secretary? Or serving up a cold dish called revenge in a high street restaurant?
Filled with stories of Putin’s extraordinary and chilling actions, with mocking ideas and illustrations to help you emulate him on a small scale, Vladimir Putin: Life Coach is the ultimate parody guide to releasing the pseudo-elected, judo black belt, 5D chess-playing autocrat inside each and every one of us.
Rob Sears has written comedy and fiction for McSweeney’s and is the author of the hit humour title The Beautiful Poetry of Donald Trump. He lives in Finsbury Park with his wife Grace.
