Overview

We all had dream jobs when we were younger. Marine Biologist. Astronaut. President.

How many of us followed through? How many of us became Marine Biologists, Astronauts, or the President? What about any of our friends? Anyone we know at all?

The fact is, most people bailed on their dream jobs. I bailed on close to 20 of them. That's where this book comes in. It started as a dark humor column on McSweeney's, a way to explore the shadowy side of what might have been had you or I followed through on our dreams. As it progressed, it became a cathartic look into the all of the worst-case scenarios of what could happen if you worked your ass off your whole life in pursuit of some ill-informed childhood dream.

Maybe you make it, and it's not all you thought it would be. Maybe you come close, but fall agonizingly short. Maybe you sell your soul and forget who you are. Maybe you get arrested. Maybe you die. In a lot of them, you die. Spoiler alert. We all die.

So read this book on the subway while you commute to your office job, and it will make you feel a lot better about where you did end up after all.
