“If anyone wrote a self-help book that actually worked, we’d all be in trouble.”

It’s not without its flaws, but it’s amusing enough and the premise is actually intriguing.

Furthermore it just goes to show that no-one writes a self-help book with the intent of it actually helping you: if it did, they’d be out of an income in no time — not only would there be no market for a follow-up, but their sales would plateau on the first title and their revenue would dry up.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
