Tall People Don't Jump turns the spotlight on the peculiar unwritten rules that govern modern society and our blind acceptance of conventions and obsessions that consistently defy logic. It explores our daily battle with our own brain, the bizarre challenges of raising children and the curious norms we have created around popular culture. The book turns the spotlight on our obsession with weather and space, our life-long quest for a car parking space and the awkward evolution of men from he-man, cave clubbers to largely-confused, new age, multidisciplinary post-homo sapiens. Then there is our struggle to keep up appearances, our guilty relationship with the mini-bar, elevator protocol, moving house and our manic determination to constantly celebrate milestones. This is a book for anyone who has lived, but can't explain why.
