It was pretty funny at times. There were some good points though. This book really shouldn't be took too seriously, it's just for laughs but there are somethings that you can learn from the book.

These are some of the cliff notes given at the end of the book that really spoke to me:

1. Clever metaphors will not suddenly enlighten you. (This guy really hates metaphors. All though the book he was calling them stupid, that made me laugh)

2. Not all knowledge is worth knowing. (True that)

3. Fear is lar

Written in the form of a kind of motivational slap in the face, I found this very interesting. For me, I think it's very helpful, encouraging questions be asked of:
- how to spend time
- what's worth learning
- the importance of doing
- the power of what we believe
- whether fear (and other problems we see) are really blockers

Very easy read.

I don't always like the language used & the low view of Christ (albeit trying to see Him as a kind of superhero). Otherwise I'd recommend this to anyone.

A short parody of self-help books. Some of his comments border on insightful, but still basically a 66 page joke. It's a well told joke, and doesn't require an inordinate amount of time, so 4 stars.

This book was hilarious and I found some pearls of wisedom that I think will actually help me. Every time I reach for a cookie, in my head I hear, "Stop it! Right now!" LOL.
