It wasn't easy, but I did it. It was a long struggle, but I made it. I found unhappiness in a peaceful world. You can too! Maybe you already have. In that case, this book will show you how you did it. And if you haven't, it will show you how you can do it. Moreover, no matter how unhappy, depressed, or anxious you are, by listening to this book you can become even more unhappy, more depressed, and more anxious. There is no limit to how unhappy you can be.
Amusing and occasionally thought provoking
This book is essentially one joke told many times over in different ways - a satire of self destructive behaviour. Yet it remains enjoyable. That should be good enough to make the book worthwhile if leisure reading is your aim. However, there is more to it than that and in some instances, the book does provoke reflection.
The narrator’s dour delivery is spot-on and I’d say that accounts for perhaps as much as half the enjoyment I got from listening to it.
