Legs manual wins odd title prize

A self-help guide called “If You Want Closure In Your Relationship, Start With Your Legs” has been voted the oddest book title of the year.

It beat off stiff competition from another entitled “I Was Tortured By the Pygmy Love Queen” to win The Bookseller magazine’s prize, reports the BBC.

“Cheese Problems Solved” took third place in a poll which attracted 8,500 votes.

Joel Rickett, deputy editor of The Bookseller, said of the winner: “So effective is the title that you don’t even need to read the book itself.”

He added that it “makes redundant an entire genre of self-help tomes”.

The manual, whose author is named Big Boom, is described as a “self-help book, written by a man for the benefit of women”.

Bookseller’s contest began in 1978, and the roll-call of previous winners includes High Performance Stiffened Structures, Living with Crazy Buttocks and How To Avoid Huge Ships.
