Crossroad Tours Present: Enlightenment for Nitwits

Posted by Frishawn Quinn at 3:11 AM



 Title: Enlightenment for Nitwits
Author: Shepherd Hoodwin
Pages: 226

My Thoughts: 
If you are looking for a book written by some self important guru who has spent countless hours chanting words that no one knows the meanings of, in places that no civilized person knows exists, while doing doing "enlightening" and possibly illegal things with their spirit animals...This is not the book for you.                                                                                           
If however, your chanting involves encouraging the microwave to heat the pizza you bought last night faster,  in English, while attempting to balance your coffee mug and check your kid for new piercings or tattoos... READ ON!

This book is one that allows the reader to help his or herself to the best and most effective of all mood lifters and ego boosts.  The power of laughter.
This is not to say that you won't find those shiny pearls of life changing wisdom while reading this book.  You will indeed find the answers that you seek.  You just might have to look between topics such as Potty Training Your Inner Child and My Toilet Runneth Over to do it.

This book is at times irreverent, non-PC, and blunt but it also offers readers a chance to broaden views, expand minds, unstuff their proverbial shirts, and laugh until it hurts.
My Rating:

Book Description

October 17, 2011

This is perhaps the first metaphysical/self-help humor collection, designed to appeal to Oprah and Dave Barry fans as well as those with more esoteric interests. In a style reminiscent of comedian Steven Wright, it s full of wry one-liners along with longer, hilariously mind-bending pieces on a wide range of subjects, tied together by the idea of clueless humans trying to find enlightenment. With its fall release, it will be a great holiday gift for anyone who loves to laugh. It s perfectly timed to take advantage of worldwide anticipation of 2012, the legendary end of the Mayan calendar, which is a recurring theme in the book.





Editorial Reviews

Review

"ENLIGHTENMENT for NITWITS" is the funniest book I have read in several decades. Without quoting the book, it is difficult to recognize its utter simplicity: "If you're not in absolute bliss by the end of it, you might want to increase your meds." "If you're reading this before the invention of the printing press, be advised it is forbidden to interfere with the course of human history." Everything, from his grandmother's urine and feces samples, beautifully gift wrapped and left on the train, to blowing it by having a thirty second negative thought, is the name of the game. Nothing is sacred. "Sometimes you have to spend another $3 at Walmart to get class and elegance." You can defend to the death your right to shop naked or you can buy the book and enjoy 223 pages of delightful spoofs.
