Dan: Is the air conditioner broken?
Nona: Yep. I already called the maintenance department. They'll be here in no time.
Dan: If I keep sweating like this, I will dehydrate!
Nona: I think what you need are some self-cooling clothes. According to a news report in the China Post, a Japanese shirt company uses every trick in the book to beat summer heat and ease global warming. It's working on clothes with fans sewn on it -- but the wind puffs up the clothes so you'll look a bit portly.
Dan: That's not a problem for me. I would rather to look a little fatter than deal without air conditioning.

解析:every trick in the book == using every method possible (想盡辦法)

There'll be here in no time.
rather... than... == 寧...也不...
