Have we got an excuse for you ... actually, more than 200 of them!
As a professional fib fabricator, author Kerry Speckman knows how to get you out of work, school and anything else you want to skip out on. She’s so good at it, in fact, she managed to weasel out of 26 days working for one company — and was still named one of its outstanding employees of the year.
For the first time, Kerry spills her best tips, tricks and tales in “The Hooky Book” including:
- Why you owe it to yourself to play hooky
- How to craft a believable excuse
- And, most important, how to avoid getting caught
