Do Everything Better!

Japan has a way of thinking that is just ...different. And nowhere is this more apparent than in Tokyo-born journalist Lisa Katayama's collection of urawaza (a Japanese word for secret lifestyle tricks and techniques).

Want to turbo charge your sled? Spray the bottom with nonstick cooking spray. Can't find someone to water your plants while you're away? Place the plant on a water-soaked diaper, so it slowly absorbs water over time. Broke a glass on the kitchen floor? Lightly press slices of bread on the floor to pick up the shards.

The subject of popular TV shows and numerous books in Japan, these unusually clever solutions to everyday problems have never before been published in English - until now! Urawaza collects more than 100 once-secret tricks, offering step-by-step directions and explanations in an eye-catching package that is as unconventional as its contents. Printed in China.
