Quite Possibly the Worst Advice I've Ever Read
Reviewed in the United States on April 3, 2020
Not only are both these books not worth your time or money, but they will be detrimental to your mental health and stability. Within the first chapter of TSAoNGaF, the f-word is used excessively -- like, over 50 times in the first chapter alone -- and the rest of the book is by no shape of the imagination any better. Sure, the title of the book should be some sort of warning as to what to expect, but when just about every other word is either bad advice or some sort of cringy, 'look at me, I'm rebellious' statement, meant for teenagers, it's extremely hard to overlook. The writer also attempts to sound wise by connecting one fact to another that have absolutely no correlation whatsoever. The one the writer loves to use throughout the entire book repeatedly is how caring about anything at all, even just a little bit, means that you automatically and subconsciously assume that the world owes you something. What I find to be outright hilarious about all of this, is that it is still categorized as a self-help book, when it harbors the exact opposite effect of self-destruction. The only good thing to come from this is that it's flammable and can be used to prolong a bonfire on a chilly summer night. If you respect yourself at all, do not waste your time and money on this poisonous trash.
