The ONE Book That Teaches You Everything You Need To Know About Life!!

When I first heard of one book that taught you everything you needed to know about life, I got excited and hurriedly bought a copy.  It wasn’t a self-help book, so I wouldn’t look like a loser buying it.

Back then (I was in high school at the time), I thought only losers bought self-help books.  Buying a self-help book was admitting to the public that you had problems, and I was taught to keep your problems to yourself.

This book that supposedly taught so much was a literary classic, so I knew I’d look intelligent by purchasing it.  It was better to appear intelligent than to look like a loser.  Buying a self-help book disguised as classic literature was brilliant, I thought.

But then I started reading this book that could teach me everything I needed to know about life.  I learned that I was gullible.  And life was brutal.  Once you learn you’re gullible in a brutal world, you’re ahead of almost everybody else.

Maybe that was all I needed to learn from a book.

  1. Yeah, and everything else from life. No wait a sec, that enormous piece of knowledge can’t be asorbed all at once. You have to learn it over and over and over again. At least I do, because my soul wants to live in a very different reality.
