The runaway bestselling collection by editor-at-large Bill Heavey continues to amaze even its publisher. “I think we already sold, like, two boxes of them,” according to the intern at Grove/Atlantic Press who answered the phone. “Way beyond what anybody here projected, I can tell you that. I know his mom bought a bunch.”

If You Didn’t Bring Jerky, What Did I Just Eat?” brings together some of Heavey’s least-offensive material from the last decade. In an imperfect world, it may be the perfect Christmas gift. In addition to memorable misadventures from Cuba to Mongolia, Northern Virginia to the Bahamas, the baldest man ever to write for Field & Stream offers valuable tips on the following:

*How to convince your stepdaughter that you’re not a mental patient in training.
*How to call in sick so that nobody questions you. (Hint: Diarrhea is a magical word.)
*Why, when heading out before dawn for an all-day hunt in the mountains with a group of guys you just met, you should remember to wear your pants.
