I found this book literally in the garbage. My grandma cleaned out a bunch of old books from my aunt's house and was going to throw them away so she brought them by to see if there was anything I'd like. The only one that stuck out was this book. It was very obviously a self-help book and I was depressed at the time (sophomore year of high school so who isn't depressed and religion didn't help, which is when my atheism also came about). I figured I'd give it a shot and a lot of it make sense.
I was surprised that there actually WAS a book with this title out there. And it's chock full of humorous, serious and altogether too true tips to live a better life and avoid the most common mistakes. Everyone should be handed a copy of it at age 18. Of course, most wouldn't begin to understand (or believe) a lot of the contents until at least 25 or 30. lol
Very interesting and insightful book. It shares some of the insights and tools about life that are very worthwhile. Have you ever pondered WHY LIFE? Insights such as, we are here to learn and do. OK, not earth-shattering, but read it for yourself. It is a great gift for a high school or college graduate.
I want to assign this to my kids when they're in 5th or 6th grade. The book is that easy to read, and common-sensical........... which I say with ambivalence because I know PLENTY of people who DON'T live by its precepts. Really lays things out for people who otherwise would make excuses, blame everyone in the world before blaming the (wo)man in the mirror, and otherwise fail to accomplish what they deserve to attempt. A really great read, and desperately important for the underachiever, too.
