Publisher's Summary

How to Ruin Your Life is a powerful self-help tool in the form of a work of humor. It is sardonic advice, presented tongue in cheek, explaining how people can "ruin" their lives. The essays cover topics such as "Convince Yourself That You're All That Matters", "Think the Worst of Everyone", "Pour Salt on Those Wounds", and "You Can Change People". Seriously, though, to anyone who hears this book, it is an earnest warning about falling into traps of self-destructive behavior that can ruin any man or woman's life. More than that, it comprises 35 steps that provide a road map to making life work in the most effective way possible. It is humor and self-help all in one, delivered by Ben Stein, a man who has witnessed more than his share of people who did ruin their lives, as well as those whose lives have been wildly successful.

I like Ben Stein I think he is funny not this time

Over all this one sucked. The Premise sucked. I know he is being funny. And there was a couple parts where a Laughed out loud. I could only stand so much though. It was just to cookie cutter.
