You would have to be brainwashed to enjoy it.

If this were a book advising cult members/ pyramid schemers on how to master their craft and had actually been well written, I could have atleast appreciated it for the insight into a secret and strange subculture. Instead it's written with extremely frequent and unnecessary paragraph spacing for such a thin book. The content is incredibly repetitive. The examples given couldn't even pass as somewhat accurate anecdotes; they are campy, cringey, hypothetical scenarios with a heavy situational bias. Clearly no research was done to back up the pseudo-psychology littered in this book whenever it benefits the author to do so. I could compare the writing style of this book to a 12 year olds rushed homework: heavily overused spacing and repetition used to create an illusion of quantity, and most ideas simply pulled out of the writers ass. Why this book has such rave reviews baffles me. You would have to be brainwashed to enjoy it.
