This guy is smarter than he looks. WEll, I've never seen him, but he says his mirror does not give a favorable report. He is funny and savvy.

Scott Adams' story is a great one, and the majority of his advice is very solid. I loved his advice on diet and exercise, and laughed out loud many times throughout the book. This book is far more interesting and enjoyable than most self-help books. The only reason I gave it four stars was that some of his ideas were a little too far out there in my opinion, especially about the power of affirmations to actually change the future, even where it wasn't related to his actions. Although, in his defense he admits it seems strange, he just tells how this concept played out in his life.
I think most people, like me, don't read self-help books with the intent of completely emulating everything the author says, but rather to find a few nuggets that can be implemented in our own lives. If you are looking for an entertaining book that can also give you ideas to improve your own life, I highly recommend listening to this book.
