A few last excerpts from the Book of Yo!
"Remember your brain is an extremely sophisticated machine for making up terrors that aren't going to happen to you."
Simon Woodroffe, pg 7
And now for my longest excerpt.
"I went to visit a food supplier recently, and upon arriving I found a solid looking sign in the prime parking space "Reserved for Simon Woodroffe" it said."
"... I commended the factory manager on the welcome and he told me that soon after the receptionist that had been responsible for my welcome had stared there, she approached him and asked for a change in job title... "What sort?" the manager asked..."A First Impressions Technologist" she told him. That's what I call a revolutionary."

Simon Woodroffe, pg 26
I'm really not doing the book justice with these random snippets though, you just need to take my word for it and get yourself a copy...!
