UK Oddest Book Title of the Year

This year’s winner is If You Want Closure In Your Relationship, Start With Your Legs. Awesome title.

The book, described as a “self-help manual written by a man for the benefit of women,” pipped “I Was Tortured By the Pygmy Love Queen” into second place, followed by “Cheese Problems Solved” in the poll for the Bookseller magazine.”The winner .. makes redundant an entire genre of self-help tomes. So effective is the title that you don’t even need to read the book itself,” said Joel Rickett, deputy editor of the publishing industry weekly.

“But don’t let that stop you,” I’m sure the publisher is frantically emailing. Click through to see the results back to 1997. Some are “meh.” But some are pure gold, like The Big Book of Lesbian Horse Stories and High Performance Stiffened Structures.
