How to Win at Just about Everything

David Feldman, Author, Kas Schwan, Illustrator William Morrow & Company $15.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-688-06465-5
Feldman, whose previous book, Imponderables, was an entertaining examination of puzzlers encountered in everyday life, here formulates a series of equally amusing, thoughtful strategies for succeeding at a variety of endeavorsfrom playing poker, the horses or the stock market, or taking multiple choice and true/false tests, to surviving a tax audit or solving crossword puzzles. He does not advocate trouncing the other guy; rather, the techniques suggested require empathy, honesty, intelligence, detachment and low ego involvementsort of a Zen of succeeding. Feldman's refreshing approach is winning and provides food for thought. Illustrations not seen by PW. (May 26)
