With hilarious chapters such as ´´How to Fail to Make Your Parents Proud of You,´´ ´´How to Fail to Do Something Productive All Day,´´ ´´How to Fail in Love,´´ and ´´How to Fail All the Way to Rock Bottom,´´ and even more ribald ´´footchapters´´ such as ´´How to Masturbate at Work,´´ ´´How to Develop an Addiction,´´ ´´How to Get Usurped by Your Girlfriend´s Ex,´´ and ´´How to Acquire the STD That´s Right for You,´´ there´s not an aspect of life that How to Fail doesn´t tackle and offer a terrific non-solution for. All of this is delivered in perfect single serving-size chapters for our modern A.D.D. culture more used to reading blog entries on their phones while riding the subway or waiting in line at Subway than in carefully reading a book. 1.

You know you´re worth his attention and you know he should be begging you to notice him. You want your man - and I´m here to show you exactly how to get him. Hi, I´m Eric. I´m a relationship expert, it´s what I do for a living. I´ve spent my career analyzing relationships to work out what makes people tick. I´ve helped countless couples find love together and now I´m here to help you. Catching the man of your dreams isn´t impossible - you just need to tune in to what he´s thinking. Plus, I´m a man. When I tell you that I know what´s going on in his head, you can trust that I do. I know what he´s thinking because I think it too. The only difference between him and me is that I have the training and insight to know exactly why I´m thinking it. And I want you to understand why he´s thinking it too.
