Attention grabbing

Time once again for the annual short-list of contenders for the Oddest Book Title of the Year. I may be blasé, but is this year's list a bit weaker than in the past?

I've rather assumed that the oddity rests in the title's ability to suggest something much more bizarre/surreal/perverse than the actual content; but for most of this year's list, it's not too difficult to work out the authors' mundane literal or metaphorical intentions. The only contender, in my book (geddit?) is - and readers of a nervous disposition should look away now -

Managing a Dental Practice the Genghis Khan Way
