8 unlikely how-to books

I noticed this item at the Canongate homepage: "8 Unlikely How-To Books."

A few of the titles:

How to Become a Schizophrenic, by John Modrow. Everett, Wash.: Apollyon Press, 1992.

How to Speak with the Dead: A Practical Handbook, by `Sciens'. New York: E. P. Dutton, 1918.
The author is identified as also having written `recognised scientific text-books'.

How to Start Your Own Country, by Erwin S, Strauss. Port Townsend, Washington: Loompanics Unlimited, 1984.

Read the entire list.
