How to be Smarter: When the book comes out as a movie, the fact that the written word got turned into a movie is justifying how great the book was, not how wonderful the movie will be. There is no better time to read the book, not run to the theater.

How to be Prettier: In pictures, point your chin slightly down to make your eyes look larger and to get rid of double chin effect.
