Not Much On Self Help Books Myself

Not Much On Self Help Books, Myself.

My beef? Richard Carlson

Dick Carlson wrote “Don't Sweat the Small Stuff and it's All Small Stuff” on hire purchase toilet paper. It was an eminently suitable material, as, what he wrote stank.

What led to the creation of this insightful tome?

Dick lost his pet hamster, puppy, and axolotls, of Ebola, as he clutched them in his arms, trying forlornly to console himself after his family, friends, and entire peer group, died in a famine, that led to genocide, when he was 2years old. (Also the age he took his first steps: directly on to a landmine.)  As it was impossible to make himself feel better, he resolved to make the rest of the world as miserable as he was by writing ridiculous self help books with catchy, inane, titles.
