Deciphering the truth in a culture of false.

Why “Normal People” Are Crazy and You’re a Goddamn Hero

This book isn’t about being perfect.  It’s about noticing faults in our reasoning and at least trying to do something about it instead of embracing your faults like they’re a brand new bag of Cheetoes.  Upon having some of my friends read this in advance, I found that some of them didn’t make it very far through the book before they accused me of writing about them. Rest assured I didn’t write this book about anyone I currently hang out with. Of course, if you are reading this and we no longer hang out, that may be another situation.  If this book makes you feel bad about yourself please don’t let it get you down.  Let it turn into inner rage so that the next time you see someone or something that is contrary to what you know you should really be like you can act on it.  Favorite psychologists like Carl Jung called it transference, I believe.  The things that bother you most about other people, the things that really make you freak out, those are usually things that you do and can’t admit to doing; which you feel bad about.  You can’t fix yourself so you try to fix others by griping at them all the time about it.  That’s the whole point.   That’s what I want you to do.  Hey Carl Jung would probably not approve, it being counter intuitive and all, but so what.  Let’s use our psychological weaknesses for good for once.  If you’re reading this book it means you give a damn which is about 100% more than about 50% of our country. If anything, this is a tribute to all who venture to tell the truth most of the time and when it counts the most.
