I'd argue that it's more correct to call it "Screw to Win"  8-)

One of the guys on the Lotus list lives near Carroll, and knows him.
The story is that Carroll called the book Screw to win, but the publisher 
changed the title.  When several on the list bought the whole series of 
books through Carroll himself, they came autographed, and with a 
"Screw to Win" sticker to be placed over the "Nuts, Bolts, and 
Fasteners... " title.

Tim Mullen - I still haven't applied the sticker though...
