Bro-Jitsu: the Martial Art of Sibling Smackdown

Daniel H. Wilson, Ph.D., has contributed some interesting books to the canon of Young Adult literature, starting with 2005's How to Survive a Robot Uprising to the 2007 technological update How to Build a Robot Army: tips on defending planet earth against alien invaders, ninjas and zombies. These are both in his subject area of expertise.
His new book will appeal to a much broader audience. Bro-Jibsu: the Martial Art of Sibling Smackdown aims to school siblings in how to survive the angst, troubles and fights (both physical and mental) that they will undergo during adolescence (heck, or as toddlers) and until the t[w]een years are a distant memory and those fights have forged bonds of iron between those people you -face it- aren't going to be rid of for the rest of your life.
Bearing that in mind, enjoy these moves (Bite! Kick! learn how to use those "throw" pillows! -- That's what they're for! --Add to your vocabulary! Have you given your brother a wet willy lately?) and learn how to avoid trouble and/or throw suspicion onto your sibling and how best to deal with your parents if you do get caught.
This book has been nominated for the 2011 Quick Picks.
