Packed full of tips, investigations, and far-out facts related to the movie, "The Abide Guide" holds the answers to all life's questions. At once funny and profound, like the classic film itself, the book shows the easiest way to be Dude-like in a chaotic world; and includes moral and inspirational life lessons from key scenes in the film, the seven habits of highly lazy yet totally successful Dudes, and great Dudes from history who changed the world without trying.
