When Brian Sack's mother passed away, he was left with a letter and a pink cardigan. The cardigan was promptly placed in a drawer, but the letter was pure gold. In just a few pages of fancy cursive, her posthumous dispatch offered the kind of guidance you would expect from a mother to her young son. And while he didn't necessarily follow all the advice, he never forgot how very important those words—and that letter—were to him. Decades later, on the verge of parenthood himself, Brian decided to write something for his own child, wanting a legacy, and not just a pink cardigan, to leave to his son. But far from the usual collection of advice, Brian has written a sharp, sage, warts-and-all survival guide to life.

With quick wit and self-deprecating honesty, Sack draws from his experiences, tapping them for the humor within. Holding nothing back, he:

  • Gives the skinny on relationships—don't let the woman you love wander alone in France
  • Commiserates about the death of the meritocracy—wanting to sing doesn't mean you can
  • Recounts his awkward entry into fatherhood—you'll overcome your aversion to poo
  • Offers firsthand advice—avoid any bipolar lady with a drug-sniffing wonder-cat
  • And argues that the Empire State Building is not a phallic symbol—no matter what the professor said

Every chapter takes on subjects ranging from the universal and mundane to the life changing and inevitable. With its funny and heartfelt musings from a father to a son, In the Event of My Untimely Demise is a delightful life primer for all of us.
