Please join to discuss thing with us not sell to us. Book pedalling is wrong. We have the means to make you regret it.

Va t'en.

Do you still claim to be completely unrelated to this book's author? Because you sure are plugging it a lot.

By selling books?

Judders, your 'tome' seems to be sinking like a brick. The reviewers don't seem to care for your weighty reflections.

I'm guessing not intentionally?

And I quote:
"There is a guy who wrote a poem about "wearing mask," and how his whole life was a front. He felt like he had to be a different person and change who he is, depending what environment he was in at the time. And he's looking for the one person who will accept him for who he really is. I couldn't relate to this poem when I got it as a teenager. But as I got older, I felt like I had to put on a mask going into different situations. That my whole life was going from one mask to another. It's hard not to be yourself! It actually takes work. I can't stand to talk to fake people! So you do have to wear mask in life. It's better to just go ahead and con the person as they're coning you, talking in a work sense. You should always be open and honest with you family."

Oh my giddy Aunt. That is AWESOME!

Wow- that is surely life changing! Let me guess- self published?

I'm guessing it's self-edited and self-proofread and self-typeset.

My favourite bit is:
"Another one is, "Honestly is the best policy." I do believe you should always be honest with your family, but not when it comes to work and everyday situations. A guy I used to work with was smoking on his job when he wasn't suppose to. He came off his forklift and the manager smoking.
asked him if he had just been
The employee said yes. He was fired and immediately walked off his job. That day I thought, so much for telling the truth! It just got that guy fired."

I fear this thread hasn't gone as planned.

How can somebody be rich and a Christian?

Well the traditional method would be to believe in the abrahamic god and Jesus and have lots of money.
Glad I could clear that up for you.

'This book challenges your critical thinking even if you know everything...' What a chump!

"How can somebody be Rich and a Christian?" - Who cares? Why not ask meaningful questions like 'whats for tea?' or 'do you swallow?'

That line is an absolute classic. I'm laughing out loud here.

Well, not quite; he only had the mask, and that was his great mistake. Everyone knows that in order to carry off this trick with the dignity and composure it requires, you also have to put on your underpants over your trousers.

Well obviously. I thought that went without saying. :-)
