The Every Excuse in the Book Book has been updated. One of the changes I made, per the request of many, was to enlarge the font size. Written in 1995–timelessly–and published in 2005, thousands of copies have already been sold. Now schools are using Excuses to reinforce positive behavior and as a teaching tool to help children convert excuses–I Can’t–into I Can! Click here to read excerpts and to order a copy.
