Publisher's Summary

David Mitchell and Robert Webb tackle various subject matters in a 'How to Cope with...', a guide talking you through every day scenarios and situations. The subject matters discussed are How to Cope with... Being Normal; Pubs; Being Dumped, Parts 1 and 2; Coffee; Malmaison Hotels; Nudists; The Smoking Ban; Actors; Servants; and Getting Older. This recording doesn't need to remind us just how great Mitchell and Webb are as a comedy duo, and will by no means need to even attempt at getting the listener's attention once the play button is pressed, but will simply show us once more everything we know and love about Mitchell and Webb and why their quirky hilarity and foibles work so well together.
For example: How to cope with Actors. Try "not be put off by their luvvie-ness" and "do not assume that all actors are all thick...Stephen Fry is an actor and also a world class boffin. David Mitchell's GCSE results are very impressive."

I normally like these guys but this audio felt like something they wrote on a napkin one lunchtime. Too short and not too funny

Fantastic! Shame it's so short ..

What made the experience of listening to How to Cope with Mitchell and Webb the most enjoyable?

The fact they're reading it. A chapter each (not together) but it's still brilliant to hear.

What did you like best about this story?

The highlights of the book, good material well delivered

Have you listened to any of David Mitchell and Robert Webb ’s other performances? How does this one compare?

This is shorter than their other audio stories at just over an hour. And it is just them recording a chapter each (never together).

It doesn't compare to anything else; this is just them being funny. If you like Mitchell and Webb, you'll love it ... if you don't why are you reading the reviews? Move on.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Laugh. Definitely.

Any additional comments?

Shame we can't have the whole book unabridged in audio (although given the description of the "missing" picture perhaps it's with good reason!).
