How to Mess Up Your Life is an uproariously funny and eminently useful guide for those of us "failures" who can use a little realistic help. Best-selling author Darrin Zeer teaches readers the essential life lessons by learning what not to do.

In the persona of "Doctor Dread" Zeer proffers a pithy and profound approach to personal growth with his unique brand of snarky self-help. He punctuates his own advice with quotes from such luminaries as Albert Einstein, Benjamin Franklin, William Shakespeare, Mark Twain, and others. Unforgettable quips include:

  • True friends stab you in the front. -Oscar Wilde
  • Speak when you are angry and you will make the best speech you will ever regret. -Ambrose Bierce
  • The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits. -Albert Einstein

From how to get dumped or fired to tips on how to stay miserable, Zeer's hilarious helpers will refresh your attitude and offer invaluable new perspective. Who knew that procrastination could actually help you get ahead? Or that not keeping a to-do list is true Zen?

Mackenzie and Sabrina woke at the same time at exactly 12:00. Something was wrong. Sabrina could feel it. She looked over at Mackenzie who was glowing. She got up and headed towards the door for the 20th night in a row. When it was opened, Sabrina saw the most unlikabl thing. It was dark and cold and drawld everyone towards it like a magnet. The thing held both mom and gran. I tried calling foo them. Twice but my throat killed me every time. I wanted to run in my room and hide like the scared 14 year old i was. But it wouldnt let me. Mackenzie came through our door and i tried once again to shout out, but even my dearest sister couldnt hear me. Then like the 19 nights before, i saw a man there again. He was tall and strong and good looking, but he was cold and evil. He pulled my sister to him and killed her with one swift swipe to her throat with a knife. I screamed out and this time my voice came. "Why!? Who are you and why me!? Why why why!?" The man pulled me towards him with such a strong force i almost cried. He opened a whole in the ground and let me fall through to the mantle under this earth. It grew hotter and hotter every moment. It was like falling through time. This time, every second of my life counted. I had a menooy then. A memory of my life. It was someone i hadnt seen before in that memory. But this memory was just a figure of imagination. I was going to die. The hottness got close and i could feel myself start to burn. I closed my eyes and then... black. ((Hello readers and friends. Soory for the short prolouge. It will be longer and i have so mant plans for this book. Trust me you wont be disappointed. Comment what you think will happen next and i will mention you the next time if you answer it correctly. Thanks for reading!))
