How can you be cool at work, or in bed, or in a bar, or in a restaurant? What is cool when it comes to dating? Calling? Not calling? Standing in their garden with a placard and a megaphone?

Coolness is a dark art and takes years of practice. But help is at hand. How To Be Cool is your trusty handbook for ineffable coolness in every eventuality. Award-winning comedian Will Smith is your guide through a world where a nifty quip, a signature drink and an outright lie about how much you like Italian arthouse movies can make you feel like Johnny Depp, rather than John McCririck.

Glaring social ineptitude will happily be a thing of the past.

'One of the most in demand and respected stand-up comedians . . . If you want to be cool, look out for Will's sage words taken from his brilliant new book'
Ryanair magazine
'This is a brilliantly observed satire on the fickleness of trends - a laugh-out-loud moment every other line'
