The book you are holding in your two hands right now -- assuming that you are, in fact, holding this book, and that you have only two hands -- is one of two books in the world that will show you the difference between the word "nervous" and the word "anxious." The other book, of course, is the dictionary, and if I were you I would read that book instead. (from the first line)
In their most daring misadventure, the Baudelaire orphans are adopted by fabulously rich people whose penthouse apartment is located mysteriously close to the place where the children's misfortune began.
From the Publisher:

Dear Reader,

If you have just picked up this particular book, then it is not too late to put it back down. Like the previous books in A Series of Unfortunate Events, there is nothing to be found in these pages but misery, despair, and discomfort, and you still have time to choose something else to read.

Within the chapters of this story, Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire encounter a darkened staircase, a red herring, some friends in a dire situation, three mysterious initials, a liar with an evil scheme, a secret passageway, and parsley soda.

I have sworn to write down these tales of the Baudelaire orphans so the general public will know each terrible thing that has happened to them, but if you decide to read something else instead, you will save yourself from a heapful of horror and woe.

With all due respect,

Lemony Snicket

Annotation:
In this cautionary analysis, two Pulitzer Prize-winning authors examine inequities within the federal tax system and predict its total disintegration if tax evaders continue to successfully exploit weaknesses in the income tax code.In the sixth entry of the continuing chronicles about the regrettably doomed Baudelaire orphans, Violet, Klaus, and Sunny are adopted by a very rich couple, one of whom is obsessed with what is In and what is Out. Luckily for the children, orphans are 'in' this year. But encounters with unbelievably long, darkened stairwells, secret passageways, and parsley soda are just the beginning of their worries. As always, Count Olaf lurks close by, waiting to pounce.
