Title: Enlightenment For NitwitsAuthor: Shepherd Hoodwin
Publication Date: October 17, 2011
This is perhaps the first metaphysical/self-help humor collection, designed to appeal to Oprah and Dave Barry fans as well as those with more esoteric interests. In a style reminiscent of comedian Steven Wright, it s full of wry one-liners along with longer, hilariously mind-bending pieces on a wide range of subjects, tied together by the idea of clueless humans trying to find enlightenment. With its fall release, it will be a great holiday gift for anyone who loves to laugh. It s perfectly timed to take advantage of worldwide anticipation of 2012, the legendary end of the Mayan calendar, which is a recurring theme in the book.
I like reading various self-help books and, this one was very fun to read. It approaches things in a light and funny way. The author gives many scenarios to illustrate the points made in the book. The author asks that you look at life from more than one point of view. Instead of focusing what's lying ahead of you, look at what is all around you (in back, to the side, up in the sky). This way you get a complete picture of yourself and how you are living your life. This is the only way you can truly understand yourself. The writing style is very random, and unique. But it flowed very well. The writing will make you laugh. You need to have an open mind to read this one. You can't go into this one taking life too seriously. It's full of lots of advice that will certainly help you to lead a happier more content life.
I was given this book as part of the blog tour to read and give an honest review.
