"But the real reason that I don't like self-help books is this, and God knows I've said it before: How the world works is not a mystery. Even more alarmingly, all of the wisdom you're going to need can be expressed in greeting cards or on bumper stickers. At the level of advice, at the level of self-help books, there's nothing left to say. If you want to improve your life or be a better person, stop reading and start doing."
What perfect timing. I'm out the door to a restaurant to "do" some eating. Full imbibing to all!
