Truly dreadful book. There was a reason there were no reviews on the book - probably no critic had anything positive to say about it. It was a mildly amusing premise but somewhat cliched - a parody of one of the most famous self-help books of all time. But the author doesn't sound like a recovering asshole - he sounds like he's stil very much an asshole. This guy claims to be a doctor, though I don't know if I even believe a word of what he says.He claims he used to be a proctologist, and he makes all sorts of stupid and vulgar jokes about this. I couldn't even finish this book because of one very disturbing scene in which the author shows a bratty, out-of-control young boy how he needs to stop being an asshole, and supposedly gets him to start behaving. I won't go into details, but if the story the author tells about his session with the child is true, he not only should have his license as a doctor revoked, he should be in jail. This book should not be called "Asshole no more," it should be called, "I am such an asshole - don't waste your time reading my godawful, ridiculous book." I hope there will be no Volume 2.
