Cause it's only a book. If it does start talking, double up on your Meds!<-JOKE! Proceed with prejudice, it just pops on & off (the cover concealing the screw).

you do just pry it off, but dont force it. It helps to take 2 screwdrivers and put them under JUST THE COVER. If you put the screwdriver under both the cover and the handle itself you're going to crack it. Once the cover comes loose you can swing it around and unbolt the handle. Easy peasy
