Your Life Sucks: Because You Are a Big Jerk!
by Brian Kasperitis

"In short, all of life’s battles are in your mind. Practice does not make perfect! However, perfect practice can show results."

When dealing with a seemingly insurmountable amount of obstacles or difficulty, it’s only natural to ask, “Why me? What did I do to deserve this?” Despite the title, this book examines positive thinking and the importance of karma as a means to turn a negative situation into something that can be learned and grown from. Each chapter considers a different type of circumstance and how to move beyond it just by looking at things from a different angle or changing an attitude. Part autobiography and part self-help book, Kasperitis’ offering relays personal stories as a means to explain the author’s points, succinctly expressing each step of his plan in a clever and digestible phrase or saying. Whether you need guidance in troubling times or just some reassurance for the path being traveled, this book is an informative, entertaining guide to a more fulfilling lifestyle.

From just a glance at the cover of this book, readers should expect a different kind of tone and approach from the average tome of lifestyle guidance. That novelty does not diminish the usefulness or sincerity of the contents of this book, but it does allow the author to stand out among a growing field of experts who claim their method is the real deal. The sense of humor and ready admission that, yes, everyone—including self-help authors—go through hard situations and make questionable decisions come across well. This makes for a more down-to-earth and receptive read, as it doesn’t condescend or shame its readers into a state of guilt. With a variety of chapters that ranges from self-examinations to the effective habits of successful people, there’s something that everyone can use to improve their life in this book.
